As uncertainty has become common in many markets, companies need supply chain applications that can support more frequent updates to plans and that trigger responsive execution. Planning needs to be more granular to reflect specific product, channel, geography, and customer issues. Another critical factor is the ability to factor many inputs into a consistent plan for sales, marketing, production, distribution, and transportation. Finally, optimization is being applied in new ways to ensure companies are making the best trade-offs.
Software to support effective supply chain management practices has been around for years, but it continues to evolve and improve. This is true of both specific solutions such as demand planning and forecasting, advanced planning and scheduling (APS), detailed scheduling, warehouse management (WMS), transportation management (TMS), and inventory optimization (IO), and of major ERP and supply chain suites that combine many of these capabilities.
