One -to-Many : Establishing a common technology platform to address multiple supply chain applications

1,072

Published on

Kinaxis | What is needed in today’s dispersed and loosely coupled supply chains are more collaboration, and less control; more coordination, and less optimization. Companies must have the ability to enable their front-line people to use their judgment to make fact based decisions which address the surprise and compromise inherent in today’s global and multi-tier supply chains. At the heart of delivering these capabilities is the technical architecture of the supply chain solutions.

This presentation describes the integrated set of capabilities that is required to satisfy the business needs of the 21st century supply chain.

One -to-Many : Establishing a common technology platform to address multiple supply chain applications

  1. 1. One-to-Many: Establishing a common platform to address multiple supply chain applications(a white paper summary)www.kinaxis.comcompany /resource center /white papers <br />Trevor Milesdirector, product marketingtmiles@kinaxis.com<br />Copyright © Kinaxis 2009. All rights reserved. <br />
  2. 2. Needed: an integrated set of capabilities to satisfy today’s business challenges<br /><ul><li>The supply chain has gone from being multi-disciplinary to being multi-enterprise.
  3. 3. What is needed in today’s dispersed and loosely coupled supply chains are more collaboration, and less control; more coordination, and less optimization.
  4. 4. Companies must have the ability to enable their front-line people to use their judgment to make fact based decisions which address the surprise and compromise inherent in today’s global and multi-tier supply chains.
  5. 5. At the heart of delivering these capabilities is the technical architecture of the supply chain solutions. </li></ul>Copyright © Kinaxis 2009. All rights reserved. <br />
  6. 6. A 21st Century Supply Chain Technical Architecture<br /><ul><li>Visibility
  7. 7. The greatest technical challenge of a highly outsourced supply chain is getting access to data on which decisions can be made.
  8. 8. Supply chain visibility is only achieved when the data from the multiple systems and companies is “stitched” together.
  9. 9. This is not a trivial matter.</li></ul>Copyright © Kinaxis 2009. All rights reserved. <br />
  10. 10. A 21st Century Supply Chain Technical Architecture<br /><ul><li>Alerting
  11. 11. In a distributed, global environment, in which information latency is endemic given the number of enterprise boundaries through which the data needs to travel, automatically receiving an alert of potential risks to the business is of great value.
  12. 12. This is especially true when all the people within the supply chain who can affect the issue in some manner are identified and included in the alert.</li></ul>Copyright © Kinaxis 2009. All rights reserved. <br />
  13. 13. A 21st Century Supply Chain Technical Architecture<br /><ul><li>Collaboration
  14. 14. Resolution of a business problem almost always requires people from different groups to collaborate in order to reach a consensus decision.
  15. 15. It is seldom that a supply chain issue can be resolved in the company’s best interests by addressing the metrics specific to a particular department.
  16. 16. Human judgment must be applied through collaboration with all stakeholders to evaluate several innovative ways of resolving the business issues at hand to reach a viable solution which best serves the interest of the company and other stakeholders in the supply chain.</li></ul>Copyright © Kinaxis 2009.

  17. 17. A 21st Century Supply Chain Technical Architecture<br /><ul><li>Evaluation
  18. 18. There are too many nuances and “soft” constraints in global multi-enterprise supply chains to represent in an optimization engine, let alone make it good practice to cede decision making power to the optimization engine.
  19. 19. Being able to emulate multiple MRP analytics in a single system reduces the decision cycle enormously, allowing many more alternatives to be evaluated.
  20. 20. Being able to manage the entire supply chain in a single system is a tremendous boost to productivity and consequently affords companies enormous responsiveness.</li></ul>Copyright © Kinaxis 2009. All rights reserved. <br />
  21. 21. A 21st Century Supply Chain Technical Architecture<br /><ul><li>Resolution
  22. 22. Front-line people must have a mechanism for evaluating and comparing the alternative courses of action.
  23. 23. Not only should they understand the effects of decisions on their own metrics, but, and perhaps of greater importance, they should also understand the effects of their actions on a wider set of metrics that reflect corporate goals.
  24. 24. This ensures consistency of decision making as well as a measure of corporate control over local decision making. </li></ul>Copyright © Kinaxis 2009. All rights reserved. <br />
  25. 25. One-to-Many Business Value<br /><ul><li>The outlined core functional capabilities provide a platform in which many applications specific to certain industries or business functions can be deployed rapidly and effectively using a common data structure and user interface.
  26. 26. The applications include:
  27. 27. Multi-Enterprise Visibility & Reporting
  28. 28. Inventory Analysis and Positioning
  29. 29. S&OP Support and Enablement
  30. 30. Order Promising/Global Available-to-Promise/Capable-to-Promise
  31. 31. Capacity and Constraint Planning
  32. 32. MPS Planning
  33. 33. New Product Introduction and Transition
  34. 34. Supplier Collaboration
  35. 35. Data Integrity Management
  36. 36. Performance Monitoring and Alerting
  37. 37. Regulatory Adherence</li></ul>Copyright © Kinaxis 200 All rights reserved. <br />
