Below are some of the areas in which we have applets available to streamline basic processes to increase accuracy and efficiency as well as tie planning to execution.
Inventory Planning – Network Balancing Application
This solution was originally developed for one of the largest Wholesale Distribution companies in the world. They have a network of over 30 distribution centers running a hub and spoke structure. Product is received into a distribution center and then shipped to smaller forward distribution centers to service regional customers. Traditional MRP and/or planning systems will create stock transfer orders or purchase orders based upon when a facility is below inventory levels. However, what they don’t do is first check to see if material could be used from another DC within the network, therefore, utilizing inventory they already have in the network.
