“Speed up your response to the markets today while lowering costs with SCA Planner solutions”
Leading Enterprise Cloud platform delivers processes that integrate procurement, supply chain, risk management, marketing and other functions to deliver real-time intelligent planning and fast response.
COVID-19 has revealed limits of current supply chain practices. Till now, the common supply chain practice was to fix supply sources and items. Managers only adjusted inventory in response to demand change. This practice is grossly inadequate to manage supply chain today. The real challenges are:
- Inflexible supply chains: Food supply chains were inflexible by design – to mitigate risks and save costs. Managing in COVID 19 era requires real-time fast response, flexibility and agility in supply chain choices at lowest cost.
- Silo approach to cost and supply: Traditionally firms isolate supply and cost management into separate unconnected processes. Today, markets change fast and current processes cannot respond in time. Modified processes that manage supply concurrent with costs and enables fast decisions for finite horizons are needed.
- Managing in uncertain markets: Restaurants face uncertain demand and supply. Current processes work under relative certainty of demand. Real-time solutions with shorter planning cycles that bring supply and cost together at each decision point will be needed.
