FUNCTIONALITY OF COMPLETE PLANNING: STRATEGIC, TACTICAL AND OPERATIONAL

SAP APO Advanced Planning & Optimization

SAP APO helps you transform a linear supply chain into an adaptive supply network. With this adaptive supply network, demand-oriented companies share knowledge and adapt intelligently to changing market conditions. And finally they respond proactively to shorter and less predictable life cycles.

The synchronization of supply and demand is essential to complete successfully in volatile global markets, and SAP offers a number of applications to make this easier. SAP Advanced Planning & Optimization (SAP APO) improves your supply network by offering complete planning functionality: strategic, tactical and operational.

 

DEMAND PLANNING

SAP APO uses advanced forecasting algorithms to anticipate the demand for products or product features. This helps planning the introduction of new products and comercial promos. It can also plan, in advance, the response to external events that may affect the demand, or work closely with their clients to exchange demand data.

 

SUPPLY NETWORK PLANNING

With the integration of purchasing, manufacturing, distribution and transportation plans into a general picture of the supply, various market conditions can be simulated. In addition you implement comprehensive tactical planning and provisioning decisions based on a single and consistent model.

The model may include capacity and material planning at various levels, based on heuristics and / or cost optimization algorithms.

 

PPDS- PRODUCTION PLANNING AND SCHEDULING SAP APO

Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PPDS) offers the planner a complete set of functionalities related to internal production planning, external procurement and outsourcing planning, production resource programming and sequence optimization.

By executing genetic optimization algorithms, PPDS automatically proposes viable and optimized multilevel production programs that take into account plant capacity constraints and material availability, allowing the planner to ensure a rapid, flexible and demand-oriented response.
