EIS content on SCN has grown and will now be populated in this new EIS space under Supply Chain Management. This page provides links to the documents that have been published already in the EIS category under the SCM space and cannot be moved here for technical reasons.
Here you will find individual video vignettes on the building blocks of SAP EIS inventory optimization software. Prior to that acquisition, SmartOps educational material was available through the SmartOps website. Categories are:
- Single Stage Inventory Optimization
- Multi Stage Inventory Optimization
- Advanced Inventory Optimization Modules
- Key Inventory Factors
The SAP Connector application allows users to mass upload Item-Location (IL), Item-Location-Customer (ILC), and Vendor data into custom EIS tables in
SAP. This link includes files you can use to input IL and ILC data to load into SAP through the Mass Upload feature.
SAP EIS Service Level Optimization (SLO) is now part of SAP EIS. It is designed to determine the right item-location-specific service targets, minimize inventory investment and lost margin while meeting a global service objective, or while setting service level objectives based on the balance between cost-to-serve and cost of lost sales.
These two links are part of a series of Frequently Asked Questions about the SAP Enterprise Inventory & Service-Level Optimization product.
Celestica initiated a fully automated implementation across the global supply chain, including dynamic, automated integration with SAP ERP. This video about the Celestica implementation of SAP EIS was recorded at the SmartOps FORUM in Chicago on September 2012 by Celestica. This implementation linked two main SAP instances through coordinated use of optimized reorder points.
This document was designed as the starting point on the SAP Community Network (SCN) for information about EIS after the SAP acquisition of SmartOps in 2013. In addition to Enterprise Inventory and Service Level Optimization software, SmartOps also had developed Enterprise Demand Sensing application and EIS Analytics. These are the links to information about these applications included here.

The acquisition of SmartOps by SAP in 2013 paves the way for SAP to develop “real-time supply chain” software solutions, leveraging the SAP HANA® platform which empowers customers to run their businesses in real time — to analyze, predict, react and adjust instantly. One of those solutions is Enterprise Demand Sensing. Here’s a link to a recorded webcast about EDS.
Companies need to bridge the gap between long-term demand plans and order execution. SAP Enterprise Demand Sensing developed by SmartOps but not part of EIS, can help. This powerful software helps you lower cost and effort by reducing repositioning and expediting. Reduce inventory levels thanks to accurate short-term forecasts that lower the need for safety stock.
