Think Tanks connect you with peers navigating the same challenges and opportunities as you. ASUG will facilitate an interactive peer-to-peer exchange where solutions are shared for topics specific to your role and interest.

Should you go with SAP Project System Network Activity/Order or the Plant Maintenance Work and Purchase Order? This topic does not seem to be clearly defined for many, leaving the decision on which set-up to use very murky. Attend this interactive discussion to learn the advantages and disadvantages of each program, along with SAP S/4HANA configurations.

Join us on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 1:30 p.m. CT.


  • Brief welcome and kickoff from ASUG
  • Rapid case study led by ASUG member Rick Paull from Indorama
  • The discussion will focus on identifying and highlighting clear advantages and disadvantages. For example:
    • Do both methods work with cross-application time sheets (CATS)?
    • What’s the impact on a planner?
    • Planning and executing a turnaround project
  • Sharing of recent wins or successes, along with resources utilized

Gain visibility into the challenges and successes other SAP customers are experiencing, and acquire new ideas for real-world solutions.
