The various applications that come under Supply Chain Planning are



1. Advanced Scheduling

This provides a detailed coordination of all manufacturing and supply efforts based on individual customer orders. Scheduling is based on real-time analysis of changing constraints throughout the process, from equipment outages to supply interruptions. Scheduling is much more execution oriented and creates job schedules for managing the manufacturing process as well as the supplier logistics.




2. Demand Planning

This would generate and consolidate demand forecasts from all business units in large corporations. The demand-planning module supports a range of statistical tools and business forecasting techniques.


3. Distribution Planning

This would create operating plans for the logistic managers. Distribution planning is integrated with demand planning and advanced scheduling modules and hence gives the operating plan for fulfilling orders.


4. Transportation Planning

This facilitates resource allocation and execution to ensure that materials and finished goods are delivered at the right time and to the right place, according to the planning schedule, at minimal cost. These include inbound and outbound, intra and inter company movement of materials and products. It considers such variables such as loading dock space, trailer availability, load consolidation, and the best mix of available transportation modes.
