To cope with today’s challenging environment, you need to strongly link planning and execution on a single platform. At its most fundamental level, linking supply chain planning and execution on a single platform enables you to fulfill, move and deliver the products you have forecasted while simultaneously optimizing your resources, addressing increased supply chain and demand variability, reducing waste and markdowns, and making your customers happy.
If your organization is like many others, your planning function is largely siloed from other supply chain operations. This fragmented process often requires a lot of manual manipulation of data. Planners can’t (and shouldn’t) bounce between applications and be expected to meet their goals. Without a single workflow, their accuracy and productivity take a big hit. A fragmented approach lacks visibility across the entire supply chain, limiting the ability to determine the best course of action to allocate supply to meet demand and replenish stocking locations.
