Misuse of Application Strengths
-Client lacked the tools to manage pre-build crop supply with year-round customer demand.
-Time Phased Safety Stock Pre-build solution did not improve crop outage performance.
-Safety Stock management required excessive maintenance to manage every item/location weekly target.
Align Application Capabilities
-Utilize master data to model external crop and seasonal component constraints.
-Routings and BOM modifications to eliminate PPDS / SNP seasonality customizations.
-Enable supply networking heuristics and optimizer modeling, without master data modifications.
-Implement current and seasonal demand in to one production plan.
Improved Inventory Utilization
-Enabled “What if” scenario planning to evaluate pre-build plans 75% faster.
-No longer misusing Safety stock planning to manage seasonal pre-build planning.
-30% Reduction of excess inventory.
