  4. 4. I2 continue <ul><li>Supply & demand: designed to take a closed-loop approach to supply chain management — helping to create and execute a plan, to monitor deviations from the plan, to determine action on those deviations, and most importantly, to make rapid, short-term course corrections to get back to the plan </li></ul><ul><li>Transportation and distribution: can enable companies to procure, plan, execute, and monitor freight movements across multiple modes, borders, and enterprises </li></ul>

  9. 9. For Capgemini ( ) <ul><li>One of the key areas of focus for Capgemini has been helping clients build an adaptive supply chain – an operation that dynamically integrates demand and supply management, targets customers to boost revenue and helps to maximize profit and shareholder value. </li></ul><ul><li>The adaptive supply chain itself is a dynamic organism, evolving over time to keep the enterprise profitable. Its key attributes are total visibility, seamless event management, and real-time collaboration. Capgemini offers a portfolio of collaborative offerings and solutions to help companies build adaptive supply chains. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Capgemini continue <ul><li>Supply Chain Transformation: Supply Chain Transformation incorporates Capgemini’s experience from our thousands of client engagements to help companies achieve these goals. Supply Chain Transformation eliminates much of the laborious data gathering that slows down many supply chain initiatives, and replaces it with an enhanced focus on decision making that directly impacts the business. At the same time, Supply Chain Transformation makes dramatic improvements to cycle-time, supply chain cost and service levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Sourcing & eProcurement: Capgemini’s Sourcing & eProcurement services help unlock the value of the procurement process, generating extraordinary cost savings and improving the supply chain’s robustness. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Logistics & Fulfillment: Capgemini’s Logistics & Fulfillment services focus on transforming end-to-end fulfillment processes, allowing companies to meet the daily challenge of satisfying customers while maximizing profits and maintaining tight cost controls. </li></ul><ul><li>Product Lifecycle Management: Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is about bringing highly innovative products to market faster.

Linking RFID to Supply Chain Event Management (SCEM) systems enables sourcing or allocation decisions to be made in real time, so you can achieve flexible and responsive supply chain execution. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Q2: what are the improvements that can be done? <ul><li>Improvements: </li></ul><ul><li>They must be open standards for application solution providers to integrate with their solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>This will enhance the solution to a customer-centric level. </li></ul><ul><li>It will be wise to build a SCM software that is aligned with KM so to create a learning organisation. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of these companies offer a limited range of SCM solutions. For example: Manugistics does not have Master Data Management or Order Fulfillment that are offered by i2. </li></ul>
