Client was dealing with a poorly Implemented APO Solution. Previous Supply Network Planning (SNP) and PPDS implementation resulted in a completely infeasible plan, as PPDS was implemented with significant functional gaps, severely restricting the schedulers ability to create a feasible production plan.
SCM Connections re-designed the weekly SNP solution to provide enhanced critical issue visibility, simplified the capacity constrained inventory plan views, improved production scheduling efficiency by providing instant visibility to production plans, new scheduling capabilities and alert management, and removed batch jobs to give users more control over the solution.
Planning team used APO solution to plan their short and medium term supply chain with confidence while the supply team was alerted to potential issues prior to becoming customer service problems. Integrated the entire supply chain planning in one application allowed for increased visibility and supply projections at the corporate level.
