Supply Chain Management
You envison completely integrated logistics processes? SAP® Supply Chain Management can help your organization transform a linear supply chain into an adaptive supply chain network.
With SAP® SCM, you can model your existing supply chain; set goals; and forecast, optimize, and schedule time, materials, and other resources. You can sense and respond to demand through an adaptive supply chain network throughout the entire world in which distribution, transportation, and logistics are integrated into real-time planning processes. Availability management, for example, can be integrated across all production centers.
In order to achieve complete visibility SAP® SCM gives you networkwide visibility across your extended supply chain to perform strategic as well as day-to-day planning. This solution also enables collaboration and analytics, so you can monitor and analyze the performance of your extended supply chain – including your suppliers’ network – using predefined key performance indicators (KPIs). This interaction also covers a VMI (Vendor-Managed-Inventory) in order to further harmonize the flow of materials between you and your business partner network.
