The COVID-19 pandemic caused global production processes and supply lines to be disrupted, posing hitherto unheard-of obstacles to the manufacturing sector. Manufacturers reacted by creating creative ways to maintain commercial operations and adjust to the new normal. One such solution was the rapid adoption of mobility applications, which allowed for remote monitoring and management of manufacturing operations. This article aims to provide users with valuable insight regarding the SAP mobility app and its comparison to the Standard SAP process. It is considered one of the latest and most cutting-edge technologies regarding shopfloor support. Its principal function is to allow users to initiate some Production transactions to reduce the steps involved in simple and easy actions like Production Consumption, Reversal of Consumption, etc. Thanks to its ease of use and flexibility, the SAP mobility app provides users with easier access to the required main fields. This central perspective behind the app leads to benefits, including significant time savings. The number of steps will decrease, reducing transaction complexity and shortening users' time. This is particularly beneficial for organizations looking to save production order processing time, a challenge exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The SAP mobility app's time-saving benefits can inspire users, motivating them to achieve more with their time and resources.
