The new tool helps companies to build a globally synchronized, time-phased plan, allowing users to optimize performance across multiple supply-chain partners and such diverse activities as procurement, manufacturing, distribution and inventory. The newest release features an Agile Control Tower, which eliminates the "guess-and-check" cycle that often occurs when supply-chain exceptions are flagged. The Control Tower diagnoses the cause of the exception, and suggests solutions from a predetermined library of actions. According to JDA, it provides instant simulation of selected choices, while respecting strategic priorities and projecting impacts across the entire supply chain. As a result, planners can view actual cost and performance tradeoffs before taking action.
