About This Project


At a Glance

-Delivered: Supply Planning

-Industry: CPG, Food Processing

-Company Size: 7B


Client Problem:

Poorly Implemented APO Solution

-The 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.


SCM Connections’ Solution:

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.
