Demand planning.

The SCM module is designed to manage sales projections, aiming to produce dependable and dynamic data as the foundation for long-term and mid-term strategic forecasting.

Integration of business data into the operational planning process.

It draws on various sources: historical sales, past projections, and even upcoming forecasts provided by the sales team. This module facilitates the management and adjustment of these projections to better align with reality, mitigating potential future discrepancies. It’s not uncommon for forecast data entered into systems to be somewhat unreliable for operational teams. As a result, they often resort to manual adjustments. This module ensures a comprehensive record, involving relevant stakeholders and seamlessly integrating the data at its source.

Strategic vision for operational resource planning.

it factors in confirmed upcoming orders, adjusting the projections for each period, ensuring the forecastsremain dynamic and adaptive.

Simulation of strategic WHAT IT scenarios with various data sets.

The SCM module also provides initial planning capabilities, offering estimates for medium to long-term resource requirements, be it manpower or material assets, aligned with the sales projections. Additionally, it can generate ‘WHAT IF’ scenarios to simulate company sales growth, allowing the business to anticipate operational infrastructure needs, such as staff recruitment, training, or machinery acquisition.

Analysis of deviations between planned and carried out.

These scenarios serve as tools for planning future investments and for monitoring discrepancies between planned objectives and actual outcomes, providing timely adjustments for the remaining duration.
