Challenge: The organization wanted to elevate its supply chain planning capabilities to support synchronization, end-to-end supply chain planning, visibility and decision-making.
Solution: The company has undertaken a supply chain transformation initiative spanning global demand planning, global supply planning, distribution requirements planning (DRP) and sales and operations planning (S&OP). All with one product: Kinaxis RapidResponse.
Results: From a demand perspective, the company now generates a consensus forecast that’s aligned with the financial plan. That forecast drives the fulfillment processes, leading to a more demand-driven supply chain and more effective asset utilization. Changes to S&OP enabled the company to make better decisions more aligned with commercial and financial needs. The company now models scenarios and does deep dives on products using the same data that drive everyday decision-making.
