Adexa Users Spend More Time with Their Family!
In one of our global deployments of Adexa supply chain planning applications, it was decided that for the first phase of the project, the main subset of their product lines was to be implemented in phase 1. When it was completed, and the planners started using the system, it was noticed by the management that the users were going home a lot sooner than other planners especially towards the end of the quarter. They would all leave at the end of the day rather than staying late into the night as the other planners did!
It was then determined that after Adexa generates the plan, all they need to do is to confirm and release the plan. While other non-Adexa users had to make manual allocations and adjustments trying to make it good enough for execution. The accuracy of plan being good enough for execution comes from accurate modeling of the supply chain which is a combination of S&OP and S&OE. S&OP alone is not good enough for execution and requires a lot of manual adjustment and manipulation by the users. Systems, on the other hand, are capable of producing plans that are of much higher quality using S&OE modeling.
We are very happy to report that at this point in time the deployment has been extended to all the worldwide divisions and product groups in this multi-billion dollar company. Now all the planners will have the opportunity to leave work on time to spend more time with their family rather than wasting so much time on manual manipulation of plans and what-if scenarios, all of which would result in sub-optimal plans.
