How supply networks are transforming

The traditional focal points on cost, cash, and service are slowly changing to a more pivotal focus on material flow speed and real-time visibility. Amid volatile global markets, an intelligent supply chain will ensure maximum ROI with optimal asset utilization. Fast and streamlined material flow through a supply network enabled by real-time tracking and IoT helps achieve this.

Are you facing these supply chain challenges with your current ERP?

Dynamic market demands

Supply chains today have very limited capability to sense or predict short-term market demand and respond to it in real-time.

Limited optimization

While overall progress across system boundaries can be observed, optimization possibilities are limited without combining inbound and outbound movements.

Limited capabilities

Limited capabilities for cross-docking, labour management, quality management, transportation capacity planning, and preconfigured event-tracking

Batch-based processes

While planning is based on deliveries, batch-based processes and lack of real-time monitoring yields less than optimal delivery performance.

How an intelligent ERP - SAP S/4HANA - makes a difference

Accurate forecasts

With real-time insights from analytics, ability to meet evolving Indian expectations and demands is simplifies. Additionally, cost of demand planning and forecasting is lowered.

Reduced Total Cost

With complete end-to-end visibility in the Indian landscape, operations are more streamlined with increased inventory accuracy and reduced warehouse operating cost. This in turn leads to shorter lead times for order fulfilment and reduced transportation management costs. Landscape simplifications lower total cost of operations.

Advanced ATP

With advanced ATP and complete visibility, confirmation limits can be set. This allows execution of availability checks on more than a single material/plant combination including automated product and location substitution. The addition of these capabilities to the supply chain is required to operate in multichannel fulfillment environments in India.

Extended Warehouse Management

Advanced warehousing functionality – such as slotting and kitting that optimize the location of warehouse items for fast storage and recovery is now part of S/4HANA. While earlier ERPs had removed this feature, its addition now allows manufacturing and supply chains to advance warehousing capabilities without middlemen, complicated software, or a separate standalone solution for the Indian landscape.
