    LIS - stands for Logistics management System. The Logistics Information System (LIS) is made up of the following information systems:

    Sales Information System

    Purchasing Information System

    Inventory Controlling

    Shop Floor Information System

    Plant Maintenance Information System

    Quality Management Information System

    Retail Information System (RIS)

    Transport Information System (TIS)

    The information systems that belong to LIS have a modular structure, yet have a variety of

    techniques that allow you to evaluate data. This type of structure also allows the individual

    information systems to retain their special features.

    The Logistics Information System allows you not only to evaluate actual data, but also to create

    planning data. The information systems provide an easy-to-use planning functions that are also

    supported by a forecasting function. As of Release 3.0, the planning functionality of the

    information systems and the component Sales and Operations Planning (SOP) were combined

    and enhanced to make one central planning and forecasting tool. For this reason, you will not

    find the planning documentation in this document, but rather in the document PP - Sales and

    Operation Planning.

    You can use the Logistics Data Warehouse in Customizing to design the Logistics Information

    System to meet your own requirements. This tool allows you to customize the setup of the data

    basis for your information system, to define the rules for updating the data and to generate the

    standard analyses for evaluating the data. The documentation for this tool can be found in the

    Implementation Guide for the Logistics Information System under “Data basis” and “Updating”.

    The Early Warning System is integrated in all of the information systems and is based on the

    key figures of the information system. The Early Warning System supports the decision-making

    process by allowing you to target and monitor weak areas in logistics. It searches for exceptional

    situations and helps in the early detection and correction of undesirable situations.

    The Logistics Information Library is a further component of the Logistics Information System.

    The Logistics Information Library makes it possible to access key figures in LIS by using simple

    search strategies. In addition, the Logistics Information Library allows you to catalog the key
