While most Supply Chain Planning (SCP) systems (Manugistics, i2, SAP) provide a wide range of valuable functionality, few are optimized for operational analysis. ADI Strategies builds solutions that give clients a clear window into their critical supply chain data, thus enabling true operational efficiency and informed financial management. We call this service Supply Chain Performance Management.
ADI offers two solutions: Supply Chain Analytics and Supply Chain Financial Management.
Supply Chain Analytics
ADI's Supply Chain Analytics solutions allow users to focus directly on exception reporting; knowing which orders won't get filled and why. Most manufacturing planners are responsible for thousands of customer orders being met on a monthly basis. And, they only have time to worry about the problems. ADI's solution answers the following questions:
Which customer order cannot be met?
What's the reason that the order cannot be met?
How can the issue be resolved?
No supply chain system is perfect. Sooner or later, something won't get shipped or produced on time. Knowing which orders won't be filled and why gives decision-makers the information they need to address customer satisfaction issues while troubleshooting production or shipping-related problems.
Such solutions complement existing SCP systems by providing a greatly facilitated means for accessing specific streams and aggregations of data. The type of data shown to the user is exception data, focused on problems. Typically, these solutions do four things:
Report which orders won't get filled by a certain deadline
Offer indicators why a customer order will not be met
Provide options for addressing each situation
Produce financial reports detailing the dollar value of various scenarios
Supply Chain Financial Management
In most organizations, financial planning takes place separately from supply chain management. Numbers are shared perhaps once a month, sometimes never reconciled. ADI builds solutions that integrate supply chain planning systems with financial planning models, ensuring accuracy and timeliness of financial data even as business circumstances change.
Supply Chain Financial Management solutions provide a bridge between supply chain/manufacturing departments and financial planning teams. SCPM integrates these two previously disjointed processes, thus creating a single cohesive plan for the company.
Timely exception-based supply chain data for more accurate financial plans
Better pricing capability due to confidence in supply chain data
Financially grounded decisions based on dollar value of various scenarios
Greater accountability of information sources throughout organization
