Supply Chain Planning

We shape global supply chains

Traditionally the goal of supply chain management was efficiency. The past years have shown that a focus on this aspect alone creates unwanted and unexpected vulnerabilities which can have a major impact on customer satisfaction and the company’s success.
Agility and resilience are now at the center of attention. An agile supply chain reacts quickly to detect changes and helps solve them in an optimal way. A resilient supply chain allows for more stability as not every minor change threatens the business continuity.
Both abilities depend on the company strategy, processes as well as on culture, and more and more importantly, the IT infrastructure.
We help our customers by implementing the management strategy in their IT landscape. Creating a digital twin of the supply chain, consolidating all relevant data in one transparent platform and encouraging collaboration between all stakeholders are just a few examples of how IT solutions can leverage hidden opportunities. Realizing tight connections between all supply chain planning processes and providing a robust, bidirectional integration into the supply chain execution processes is necessary to shift to a data-driven supply chain.

If you are interested in how the SAP SCM solution portfolio can also support your business processes, ask for a no-obligation demo. We have mapped several use cases on our systems. In addition, we are happy to extend our showcases based on your individual requirements.

SCM Processes

Sales & Operations Planning
Find a balance between demand and supply on the tactical horizon. Reach full transparency across your supply chain and enhance the collaboration between all departments. 

Take advantage of cutting-edge solutions such as SAP Integrated Business Planning S&OP Module to simulate, compare scenarios and monitor the performance.

Demand Planning & Demand Sensing
Create a realistic forecast based on historical data as well as additional factors that may influence the demand. Achieve desired results with advanced statistical models combined with machine learning algorithms. Adjust short-term plans based on current demand signals and improve accuracy even in a volatile environment.
Supply Planning
Set up a digital twin of your supply chain. Gain visibility of demand, supply, and inventory. Develop a feasible supply plan, considering economic factors and priorities.  
Rough Cut & Finite Production Planning
Get a clear view of your long-term capacity plan. Convert infinite production plan to a finite production schedule down to a shift level.
Allocation Planning & Management
Use allocations to meet customer service levels. Derive from constraint forecast to align between production and sales department and avoid capacity shortages by confirming sales orders only when they are feasible.
Demand Driven MRP
Track actual usage and manage replenishment through a simple visual system. Calculate optimal buffer inventory to ensure the availability of strategic products and increase your supply chain’s resilience.
Supply Chain Collaboration
Coordinate with internal departments and external partners to sustain an optimized flow through the supply chain. Use embedded user-friendly solutions to meet demand and ensure on-time, in-full delivery.

EDI is still a commonly used technology for sharing data across businesses. Enabling broad collaboration between business partners though requires trust and an easy, scalable approach. Blockchain technologies offer both of these advantages and are increasingly adopted in the supply chain.
