Assemble to Order

The Assemble-to-Order (ATO) Benchmark integrates process chains across SAP Business Suite components. The ATO scenario is characterized by high volume sales, short production times (from hours to one day), and individual assembly for such products as PCs, pumps, and cars. In general, each benchmark user has its own master data, such as material, vendor, or customer master data to avoid data locking situations. However, the ATO Benchmark has been designed to handle and overcome data locking situations – the ATO benchmark users access common master data, such as material, vendor, or customer master data.
