Supply Planning Remediation

CPG & Food Processing; 7B

Poorly Implemented APO Solution

 

-Previous SNP and PPDS implementation resulted in a completely infeasible plan, producing an unrealistic depiction of inventory and production across the planning horizon.

 

-PPDS was implemented with significant functional gaps, severely restricting the schedulers ability to create a feasible production plan.

 

-The previous APO solution was abandoned and a manual spreadsheet process was implemented as a stopgap.

Remediated the APO Design

 

-Re-design the weekly Supply Network Planning (SNP) solution to provide enhanced critical issue visibility.

 

-Simplify the capacity constrained inventory plan views.

 

-Improve production scheduling efficiency by providing instant visibility to production plans, new scheduling capabilities and alert management.

 

-Remove batch jobs to give users more control over the solution.

Key Benefits

 

-The Planning team was able to use the APO solution to plan their short and medium term supply chain with confidence.

 

-Supply team was alerted to potential issues prior to becoming customer service problems.

 

-Entire supply chain planning in one application allowed for increased visibility and supply projections at the corporate level.
