JDE SUPPLY CHAIN PLANNING

ADVANCED PLANNING

Oracle Advanced Planning Command Center gives decision makers a comprehensive solution that delivers robust analysis of operational, tactical, and strategic supply chain plans, powerful scenario modeling and management, and automated business process execution capabilities.

As a strategic decision maker, you can quickly compare alternative business scenarios, define how they will be executed, and determine what trade-offs need to be made to meet your organizational goals. The Advanced Planning Command Center’s unique offering of prebuilt dashboards, reports, performance indicators, facts, hierarchies, alerts, and context-sensitive drill downs provide the decision support tools you require to increase value in your supply chain without the need to master complex tools and processes.

ADVANCED SUPPLY CHAIN PLANNING

With today’s rapidly changing business conditions, you need a planning tool that surpasses the traditional latency of disconnected planning processes or Excel planning spreadsheets. You can leverage Oracle® Advanced Supply Chain Planning to be more responsive. You can perform simultaneous material and capacity planning across multiple distribution and manufacturing facilities and time horizons in a single planning run, while at the same time accounting for the latest consensus forecast, sales orders, production status, purchase orders, and inventory policy recommendations. You can choose to start immediately with more advanced constrained and optimized planning, leveraging the out-of-the-box optimization, or you can decide to get to that point gradually by starting with unconstrained planning.

COLLABORATIVE PLANNING

Oracle® Collaborative Planning provides a better way to enable multi-enterprise planning. You can collaborate securely with your trading partners, reduce planning cycle time, and identify and react quickly to supply chain exceptions. By getting early visibility to your supply commit changes and making your suppliers aware of your order forecast changes, you can quickly streamline cross-enterprise planning and operations. Oracle Collaborative Planning enables you to increase forecast accuracy, implement vendor managed and consigned inventory processes, increase global supply visibility, reduce supply shortages, and lower expediting cost.

DEMAND SIGNAL REPOSITORY

Does your company want to become more demand-driven? Oracle® Demand Signal Repository leverages external demand data to lower out-of-stocks at the store shelf and improve execution of promotions and new product introductions. The result is a more demand-driven enterprise with increased revenue and reduced costs due to better demand planning, more accurate retail execution, and a more streamlined IT environment.

Oracle Demand Signal Repository offers pre-built integration with the Oracle Demantra solution, enabling companies to quickly leverage Demantra’s best-in-class functionality for demand sensing and shaping. A combined Oracle Demand Signal Repository and Demantra solution leverages a wide variety of external data for increased accuracy in predicting product demand. It can also shape demand with the right mix of promotions, while enhancing sales and operations planning (S&OP) to meet operating constraints and budgets more profitably.

DEMANTRA DEMAND

Oracle’s Demantra Demand Management helps you maximize profitability with superior capabilities to better sense, shape, and respond to demand. Automated analytics ensures that your plans are based on the most accurate, forward forecasts without the need of statistical knowledge. The result is a demand-driven organization with higher service levels and sales, more satisfied customers, and lower inventory and distribution costs.

DEMANTRA PREDICTIVE TRADE PLANNING AND OPTIMIZATION

Oracle Demantra Predictive Trade Planning and Optimization provides consumer goods organizations with robust trade promotion and account planning, sales forecasting, and promotion optimization capabilities. Architected from the ground up on an analytics platform that addresses both transactional and strategic trade challenges, such as promotion effectiveness, on-shelf availability, baseline forecasting, and incremental lift calculations, and customer profitability.

GLOBAL ORDER PROMISING

Fast, accurate order promising is the key to retain existing and attract new customers. Oracle® Global Order Promising enables you to make quick delivery promises your customers can rely on. Oracle’s order promising capabilities include robust support for distributed global order promising and multi-level supply-chain Available to Promise (ATP), Capable to Promise (CTP), and Capable to Deliver (CTD). You can consolidate supply and demand information from multiple transaction systems to provide a consolidated global picture of demand and supply. Order promising is accessible from multiple order entry systems or order capture systems (such as web stores and call centers).

INVENTORY OPTIMIZATION

Today’s tough economic conditions, characterized by increased competition, short product life cycles, increased outsourcing, and increased demand uncertainty, make it more challenging to manage your inventory policies and decide where exactly to hold how much inventory. By taking into account the supply, demand, and lead time variability of your entire supply chain, Oracle® Inventory Optimization enables you to cost effectively balance revenue, cost, customer service levels, and inventory budgets while determining your inventory postponement strategy.

RAPID PLANNING

Today’s dynamic and rapidly changing supply chains require planning tools that allow you to quickly react to unexpected events such as a new “hot demand” from an important customer, a product quality issue, a supplier yield bust, or a sudden product line breakdown. Oracle Rapid Planning delivers a fast, incremental planning engine combined with easy mass editing of data and a powerful user experience to instantly assess the impacts of changes without having to wait for daily tactical planning runs to complete and your ERP to catch up.

Embedded analytics, robust exception management, and a spreadsheet-style user interface provide predictive and actionable insight to identify the most profitable decision. Your decisions can be translated directly into action with seamless integration to execution. Rapid Planning can be deployed in heterogeneous environments and co-exist with existing planning and ERP environments.

PRODUCTION SCHEDULING

Today’s tough economic conditions, characterized by increased competition, short product life cycles, increased outsourcing, and increased demand uncertainty, make it more challenging to manage your inventory policies and decide where exactly to hold how much inventory. By taking into account the supply, demand, and lead time variability of your entire supply chain, Oracle® Inventory Optimization enables you to cost effectively balance revenue, cost, customer service levels, and inventory budgets while determining your inventory postponement strategy.

REAL-TIME SALES AND OPERATIONS PLANNING

Oracle’s Demantra Real-time Sales and Operations Planning extends demand-driven adaptive planning across your company. It enables you to implement a comprehensive sales and operations planning process that balances demand and supply around a one-number forecast to drive operational excellence and achieve profitability goals.

SERVICE PARTS PLANNING

Do you need to manage a complex after sales service supply chain with its unique challenges? Do you like to improve part availability and customer satisfaction? Could you benefit from reduced investment in service parts inventory? Oracle® Service Parts Planning, a key component of Oracle’s comprehensive Service Management Solution, can transform your after sales service and support operations from a cost center to a key profit center and a source of strategic advantage.

Service organizations are becoming instrumental in achieving top line growth, profitability, and customer loyalty. Oracle Service Parts Planning enables you to effectively manage the challenges of a multi-echelon service supply chain. Using a single Service Planner Workbench, you can simultaneously analyze forecast and replenishment decisions, and release execution plans. Oracle Service Parts Planning also provides the statistics and optimization that service planners need to improve forecast accuracy and calculate optimal replenishment and redistribution for all service parts.

STRATEGIC NETWORK OPTIMIZATION

Oracle® Strategic Network Optimization enables you to design your entire supply network with agility in mind. Today’s rapidly changing global economics require you to be more responsive. The need to evaluate your supply network design more often is essential to enable your company to compete successfully. Not only do you need to design a more agile supply network, you also need to consider your hedge strategies in your design and be able to simulate the outcome of unpredictable events on your supply network flow.
