Holistic planning of operational supply chain networks

Network Distribution Planning

When manageable supply chains become complex supply chain networks

The typical production process of globally acting companies covers all five continents. Companies are thus confronted with complex decision processes regarding their operative supply chain networks. This includes the holistic and integrated planning of

  • different transport routes and their costs,
  • inter/intra-company outsourcing and redistribution of production and inventory capacities, and
  • material availabilities.

Planning complex network relations: When SAP reaches its limits

SAP ERP provides a bundle of basic transactions, e.g. for creating stock transfer orders or subcontract orders, managing freight forwarders, invoicing of activities, posting goods movements etc. However, the system may not be described as a planning/simulation tool to manage such complex network relations.
