Atlas Planning


Be Greater than the Sum of Your Parts

Intelligent Inventory, Collaborative Suppliers, and Demand Sensing Create a Competitive Edge

As your parts portfolio grows, balancing service and cost with changing customer preferences, stricter sustainability regulations, and fluid tariff policies becomes a daunting challenge.

Powered by machine learning, the Atlas Planning Platform uses rich market data analyses, demand sensing, and real-time scenario planning to tame your complex aftermarket supply chain portfolio.

With unrivalled end-to-end visibility you can better collaborate with suppliers on developing more resilient supply chain networks and minimize risk by predicting disruptions before they have a chance to adversely impact your business.

Atlas Supplies Key Parts of Your Aftermarket Planning Advantage

  • Think Faster to Respond First

    The aftermarket parts challenge is multi-tiered: first you must balance erratic and intermittent demand, then optimize finished goods stock while rationalizing inventory by cost, margin contribution, storage capacity, service levels, and supplier lead time.

    Atlas lets your team conduct in-depth “what-if” scenarios and simulations to drive fast, precise decisions

    Our multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) right-sizes buffer stocks for superior cost and service

    More accurate forecasting across the entire product portfolio of both fast and slow-moving items helps optimize service levels

    Granular analysis and forecasting at the channel and individual order-line level lets you master long-tail demand

    Vendor managed inventory (VMI) capability builds a new level of trust and collaboration with customers.

  • Visibility to Collaborate with Everyone

    Connecting to dealer networks and retailers gives your team downstream demand visibility and puts demand sensing to work to position inventory more accurately across multiple tiers.

    Atlas’s advanced planning capabilities powered by machine learning optimizes inventory levels everywhere to reduce costs and free up working capital while responding to fluctuating tariffs and the ebbs and flows of demand.

    In an unpredictable environment, the best defense is a good offense.
