Blanco – New Production Model

Blanco – New Production Model

blanco-6ASPA has made a reengineering and redeployment of all processes with the sourcing and production system to SAP ECC Retail for BLANCO. Processes that had been implanted previously were not properly adapted to the reality of the company and, in a situation of sustained growth of the company, it was necessary to have a solution that would simplify the implementation of procurement and manufacturing process and in turn, would increase control of logistics processes associated with this scenario.

The solution is based on the implementation of Purchasing Management of SAO Retail integrated with Transportation Costs Management and the ABC Costing tool for SAP R/3, all integrated in turn with the other modules of SAP R/3 which were already operating.


The whole process has been simplified significantly after the project implementation. They have reduced the number of process steps and the volume of master data to be maintained, in turn eliminating superfluous developments.

In addition, there are reliable and consistent information about the stock in transit from the supplier and the stock received in the distribution warehouses, essential information for both, logistical planning processes receptions, vendor claims, distribution store, etc., as well as for financial processes to check supplier invoices and stock valuation.

Finally, the product costs are updated accurately and there are enough management tools for the analysis of their origin and for making decisions about future production operations.
