Industry Supply Chain
The Industry Supply Chain requires anticipating the demand of your market in order to efficiently size your resources, your supplies, your storage and your distribution. For this, you therefore generally rely on PIC-S & OP, PDP processes. You also want to implement integrated and financial planning of the “Integrated Business Planning” type.
Your production environment is typically finite capacity, multisite, and multilevel, which makes planning difficult if you don’t have the tools to simplify planning. In addition, you need to manage your supply plan for components, raw materials and packaging. This is in order to optimize your stocks, reduce your outages and increase your service rate while remaining agile to deal with the vagaries that could arise within the supply chain.
