JDA Issues New Release of Supply-Chain Planning Suite

JDA Software Group Inc. has released a new version of its supply-chain planning suite for manufacturers, retailers and distributors.

Comprising more than 20 applications, the tool is part of JDA eight, the vendor's release that combines planning, optimization and business analytics on a single platform for deployment in the cloud. Features available with the suite include in-line analytics, process-driven workflows, packaged event-response levers, consolidated demand signals and in-memory techniques. Embedded analytics allow planners to respond to changes and resolve disruptions immediately, JDA claimed. Role- and task-based workflows allow for the performance of all tasks related to a given business process. The release introduces Agile Workbench with JDA Supply Chain Planner, offering incremental planning workflows which guide master production planners through appropriate resolution actions in response to supply-chain disruptions. JDA Demand 360, a new module of JDA Demand and part of the supply-chain planning suite, provides data aggregation and disaggregation through in-memory processing.
