Assisting in the development and implementation of standardised (European Supply Chain) processes, and creating or improving existing SOP’s where appropriate, you will initialise the planning data for new materials as well as updating the required master data for new or changed product routings or prices and must support the optimisation of product routings by applying weekly updates to the SAP planning and replenishment data.
