New capabilities include intelligent and prescriptive demand and supply planning, real-time and collaborative cross-functional scenario analyses, and an in-memory foundation for an "always-on" supply chain.

JDA Manufacturing Planning spans multiple supply-chain processes, including network design; sales and operations planning; demand, inventory and supply planning; order promising; production scheduling; procurement and cross-enterprise collaboration.
