How advanced planning and scheduling can improve the performance of your supply chain.
Supply chain disruptions are incredibly stressful for manufacturers. Without visibility into all levels of the supply chain, production planning can be difficult and disjointed. That is where supply chain management planning becomes crucial, and an advanced planning and scheduling (APS) solution can help manufacturers stay in control.
Companies have faced supply chain disruptions in recent years, severely impacting their ability to get raw materials or finished products. Bringing production planning to supply chain management allows companies to assess potential scenarios, such as supply chain disruptions, and adjust production plans around the supply chain. Managing the supply chain and being able to understand its complexities and dependencies creates opportunities for companies to succeed despite a challenging environment.
One future trend in supply chain management is the adoption of a control-tower approach. This allows companies to create a cross-functional team to break down silos and gain access to all the information they need to make data-enabled business decisions throughout the entire supply chain. An APS solution in manufacturing and supply chains is key to the success of a control-tower approach. An APS solution supports the three main pillars of this approach by enabling companies to make data-enabled decisions and quickly evaluate a variety of potential scenarios.
