  • Need-to-supply mapping in situations where planning is critical for externally supplied raw materials and packaging

Apart from these functions, the SNP module can be integrated with some modules of SAP APO via SAP technology. Aggregate data is integrated into the APO system from the ERP system; It is involved in planning processes in the APO system. Functions such as demand forecasting planning, constraints and bottleneck resource management can also be implemented integrated with other modules of the APO

PP/DS Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling

The PP / DS (Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling) module is the detailed scheduling and optimization model.

Some of the functions in the Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling module are:

   Planning internal production and outsourcing processes

  • Material requirements planning
  • Optimize source-product planning
  • Detailed scheduling of orders
  • Make instant capacity planning
  • Optimize delivery processes
  • Improving delivery performance in response to time of term
  • Reduce inventory costs through resource and product optimization
  • Optimize bottleneck sources
  • Provide tools for interactive planning
  • Provide planning algorithms for products, resources and orders
  • Improvement of source, product and procurement processes
  • Shift management
  • Minimize parameters such as Preparation Times / Costs, delays, total production times, etc.
  • Consider situations where resources can not work at the same time
  • Take into account situations where resources can not feed many products at the same time
  • Show flow relationships between machines
  • Considering stocking constraints
  • Determining the minimum / mandatory waiting periods in the production flow
  • Simultaneous or batch-based production flows
  • Revise production plan

Apart from these functions, the PP / DS module can be integrated with some modules of the SAP ERP system and SAP APO via SAP technology. Aggregate data is integrated into the APO system from the ERP system; It is involved in planning processes in the APO system. Functions related to demand forecast planning, procurement network processes, and other APO modules such as constraints and bottleneck resource management can also be integrated into the PP / DS module.

SNC Supplier Network Collaboration

The SNC (Supplier Network Collaboration) module is a model for establishing connections with suppliers, suppliers and customers.

Some functions in the Supplier Network Collaboration module are:

  • Accelerate co-operation with your suppliers, contract manufacturers and customers
  • Significantly reduce purchasing, sales and inventory costs
  • Increase the visibility of the supply chain and increase the overall speed, accuracy and compliance of your supply chain
  • Reduce inventory levels while managing supply and demand variations
  • Improve communications and reduce inaccuracies and processing costs
  • Eliminate information hurdles and delays and build a really demand-driven supply chain
  • Software synchronizes and automates the information flow - so you can better align supply and demand, optimize inventory management, improve customer service and more

SPP Spare Parts Planning

The SPP (Modular Spare Planning) module is a module that provides planning functions specific to service parts in the supply chain, up to product delivery on demand.
Some of the functions in the Spare Parts Planning module are:

   Inventory planning with product priorities in mind

  • Ensuring optimal distribution of incoming goods for students
  • Stock-based compensation
  • Checking available stocks and distributing excess stocks, if any
  • In anticipation of forecasting models, planning for the replacement of potential new products        
  • gradually through the entire life cycle of a product
  • Monitoring the deliveries received from the supplier
  • Monitoring stocks between production sites
