According to the vendor, it serves as a collaborative platform for supply-chain knowledge-sharing through a single source of information, leading to quicker and more informed decision-making. EPIC sits on top of an organization's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, and can simulate changes in supply and demand. It runs real-time material requirements planning (MRP) scenarios in a matter of seconds, and stores snapshots of history to enhance analytics for predictive planning. In the process, ModusLink said, organizations can quickly correct supply-chain problems such as sourcing or material delays, more easily identify opportunities for gains in efficiency, reduce expenses and improve customer service. ModusLink EPC will be available in March, 2016.
