What is ICH

Hi,

Can anyone elaborate in detail what is ICH (Inventory Collaboration Hub) and why is ICH required.

Also, I have some basic questions:-

1. Is ICH related to SRM or SCM ?

2. Is ICH installed in a separate box ?

3. Is ICH a separate package like CRM, SRM, SCM ?

4. Is there any document on ICH ?

Thanks in advance.

Bala

    Hi Bala,

    ICH is the supplier collaboration element covering tigher collaboration processes,

    like forecasting, kanban, order management; it supports the production process,

    but for e.g. does not cover invoicing. it is different than SUS, which focus

    on small suppliers without any systems inhouse and only offers order managmt.

    It depends on the environment, if you need SUS or / and ICH.

    In longterm the SUS functionalities are planned to be integrated into ICH forming

    a new product called Supply Network Collaboration offering all collaborative

    processes.

    - ICH is part of the SCM Suite as well found under Collaboratio Suite

    - Installed on a separate Box; from SCM perspective it also makes sense to

    separate APO and ICH; nevertheless SCM is a one client environment, like BW

    - Documents are available via SCM and Solution Manager; search in the

    Marketplace

    Thanks,

    Claudia

    Hello Bala,

    ICH is part of SCM. But, It comes with the SRM supplier Collaboration package also and i think the remaining doubts were clarified by other gurus.
