As a company operating healthcare facilities, Johns Hopkins Health Systems (JHHS) faces heavy regulations and must operate 24/7 with no downtime. JHHS Affiliates used to manage all inventory on non-SAP software. At the time, JHHS struggled to share all the information across its supply chain units and manage inventory in a way that guaranteed the central stores and procedural areas always had the supplies they needed without too much dead stock. As a result, JHHS moved all its hospitals to SAP software, one at a time. Attend this case study session to learn how Johns Hopkins:
- Created system integration and automation to optimize inventory processes
- Trained supply chain specialists to use standard SAP functionality for inventory management
- Implemented SAP ERP in a hospital system
- Integrated SAP material requirements planning
