SAP R/3 and SAP B1 Production Planning(Urgent)


Can anyone please explain the basic difference between SAP B1 and SAP R/3 in terms of Production/Manufacturing module.I have worked in R/3, but not in B/1.

Please let me know what are the things possible in SAP R/3, but not in SAP B1 and vice versa.

And also in which scenario should I go for SAP B1 and when for R/3.

Thanks in advance.

    There are many differences, but in a nutshell:

    B1 doesn't do MPS or mutliple level forecast explosions

    B1 doesn't do routed production orders, it doesn't do count-point repetetive mfg.

    B1 isn't going to cost fifteen billion dollars and require a staff of thousands to implement. 😊

    There are add-ons that may be purchased for advanced production scheduling. We are testing an add-on variant configurator for B1. I wrote a VB program to provide a multi-level forecast explosion (like R3) for my company.

    We use R3 for the parent company and other "complex" companies. B1 is being installed for the small, independent companies. (In a central server location)
