Normally, you only hear about sales and operations planning. Why? Because until now you couldn't seamlessly consider inventory levels, even though they impact your ability to produce and deliver on time and on budget. Adexa's Sales, Inventory and Operations Planning solution considers the whole picture. It enables you to optimize inventory buffers across the supply chain, reduce customer lead times, increase order fill rates, and avoid capacity and materials shortages. You can set inventory levels based on your service-level commitments, identify imbalance and capacity bottlenecks, and use your own time-varying business rules such as sourcing across multiple plants and multiple suppliers with qualifications and postponement strategies.
Only Adexa integrates forecasting, demand planning, inventory optimization, material and capacity planning, and supply planning into a unified, end-to-end collaborative environment. Organizations can take advantage of capacity constrained optimization, inventory optimization, collaborative demand and supply planning and underlying business-process workflows.
