Only 30% of companies have a feasible plan to balance assets, inventory and growth strategies. Shrinking product life cycles, changing consumer demand, margin pressure, and reduced supplier capacity require more reliable long term capacity plans and short-term detailed schedules.
Start. Integrate capacity and volume data from plants and suppliers; consider material availability and production.
Evolve. Capture short/mid-term demand; utilize multiple scenarios to quickly respond to changing market needs.
Accelerate. Model multi-tier value networks, evaluate risk mitigation, service and cost to serve trade-offs in the plan.

Increase throughput and efficiency with rough cut capacity planning.
Simulate and find the best trade-offs between manufacturing efficiencies, material and resource availability, and manufacturing schedules.
Drive increased production throughput, respect manufacturing constraints, optimize changeovers, and lower inventory of finished goods and raw materials.
Extend visibility from raw materials to finished goods by linking third party suppliers and contract manufacturing helping evaluate risk mitigation, increase profitability, assess customer service and cost to serve trade-offs.
Reconcile long-and mid-term production plans on the same platform. Perform what-if analysis to evaluate changes to capacity, raw material availability, and the impact on margins, costs and inventory levels.
Capture short and mid–term demand signals from warehouses, DCs and shipping locations to adjust production plans. Consider material availability, delivery channel constraints, sequence coordination, and customer SLAs into the plan.
