Your business depends on supply network efficiency — the swift and reliable delivery of products to vendors or to direct customers. Without an optimized network of supply and delivery, your business is losing money and missing out on key opportunities for development and growth. This is where Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software makes all the difference.
Advanced Planning and Scheduling software does exactly that — it applies advanced tools that define effective production and supply plans, as well as line-focused scheduling to optimize the route to market. This means identifying bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and key cost centers within existing supply models, and then crafting a plan to iron out these points of friction.
This depends on integration. Your APS solution sits within your broader software ecosystem and draws upon internal and external data derived from these integrated pieces of software. An enterprise resource management solution delivers inventory and production data, while customer relationship management programs provide information on demand and consumer needs. Working together with these solutions, APS software has the data resource it needs to create plans and schedules that reduce costs and optimize delivery.
