The Supply Planning app assists manufacturing organizations to visualize and plan their supply chains from Distribution Operations back to Production Planning.

Manage your supply chain by inventory, order shortage, and capacity exceptions. Use the calculated suggested order quantities by week or manually override to proactively account for high demand or supply shortages.

Manage your supply chain by exception to prioritize and focus on problem locations and products
Analyze demand, netted requirements, and inventory by distribution center and finished good
Inventory safety stock calculated from parameters such as customer service level, forecast error (MAPE), production yield, and more.
View historical order fulfillment metrics at any hierarchy for distribution centers, finished goods, and customers
Analyze production requirements at the plant and production line level, pull requirements forward to level load production, as well as adjust production line calendar to add/remove available hours
