The New Advanced Variant Configuration Engine is Available!

Lots of hard work has lead to the release of S\4 HANA 1708.

This release DOES contain the new SAP Advanced Variant Configuration Engine (known as the AVC)..

You can see a series of short videos about the AVC at this link;

The next major milestone is the 1709 release which is the On Premise version of S\4 HANA. This ALSO contains the new AVC!

Have you Registered for Fort Lauderdale?

Hello CWG Members,

As you might know, the October CWG Conference is fast approaching.

I'll be there again, presenting an overview on each master data object utilized in a Variant Configuration model. While targeted at the beginner in Variant Configuration, you just never know.. Maybe there will be a nugget in there for you.. And maybe just maybe, I might play the infamous "Beer or No Beer" game..

S/4 HANA Advanced Variant Configuration Engine

Over the past couple of years you have heard about a research project and an official project to define a new Advanced Variant Configuration Engine in the SAP S/4 HANA software. I'm very happy to share with you the first SAP promotional video on this topic, even if it DOESN'T have a Steelcase chair in it..    :-)

What Happens in Vegas.......

Las Vegas 2016 CWG Conference is over... So let's start planning the spring conference... The voting is leaning towards Hamburg at this particular moment..

 

But I wonder... In Vegas we had around 115 people. On day 1, a question was asked of the audience; "How many people voted for Las Vegas?" I think 5 people raised their hands.. Not sure why this happened, but it does make me wonder about the whole "voting" thing..

Although, I admit... I'd rather do Hamburg than Barcelona... I like German beer better... :)

Design Validation of new VC app for S/4HANA on day 2

Dear CWG members,

SAP is working on the S/4HANA app for variant configuration. The design of the new app is still rough, and we would like to get end user feedback right from the beginning, so that we head in the right direction right away. Felix Haeusser and Uwe Betzin would like to validate the current design ideas on day 2 by doing usability tests with end users.
