Abstract


To determine the ability of SAP ERP to generate a maintenance zero-based budget, a case study was conducted at Company X, using the FY17 maintenance budget (approximately R138M). From the information obtained it was determined that the maintenance module (within SAP ERP) could only accurately allocate 35.3% of the maintenance costs for FY17. Further findings found that by changing the cost centre structure of the maintenance module in SAP ERP one could increase the cost visibility to from 35.3% to 88%. It was therefore concluded that SAP ERP is suitable to generate a maintenance zero-based budget, if setup correctly.
