What's New Viewer - SAP S/4HANA

Contribution-based Formulation

With this feature you can see the formula items in a hierarchical structure and understand how they contribute to the primary output in terms of nutrients, cost, or composition. For nutrients and cost, you can define a dedicated reference quantity that differs from the Calculation Parameters. You can create your own layouts and save them so the most frequently needed information is always at hand. You can modify the recipe and see the updated contribution values immediately.

Additional Details

With this feature, you can perform the following tasks:
  • Get a hierarchical view for better understanding the contribution of each formula item to the primary output.
  • Calculate the cost contribution of each formula item using a dedicated reference quantity.
  • Calculate the nutrient contribution of each formula item to the primary output or to a stage output using a dedicated reference quantity. Nutrient loss profiles are taken into consideration.
  • Calculate the composition of each component and show how each formula item adds up these components to the primary output.
  • See basic intraformula calculations (eg. Mass per PO) for each formula item.
  • Modify the recipe and see the updated contribution values in real time.
  • Manage layouts and create user-specific layouts for the contribution view.
  • Export the contents of the contribution view to a spreadsheet.
  • Reorder columns within the contribution table, sorting them based on importance.
  • Scale quantities in read-only mode.
  • Get notification on missing nutrient values and/or exception values.

The Contribution view is available in the Manage Recipes app, under the Formula tab. For more information, see Contribution-Based Formulation.
