INTEGRATED BUSINESS PLANNING AND EXECUTION ACROSS YOUR DIGITAL NETWORK
Improve Responsiveness, Agility and Financial Performance with One Network’s Intelligent Business Platform
Global Supply Chains in a Rapidly Evolving and Volatile World
Across virtually every industry today, organizations are challenged with managing their complex global supply chains efficiently, unlocking value, and improving business performance in an increasingly competitive, volatile world. Enterprises need to operate in a way that unifies and optimizes planning and execution in real time, all the way from sales and operations planning (S&OP) to sales and operations execution (S&OE) in the last mile.
In today’s hyper competitive environment, the inability to meet target service levels because of out-of-stock, fill-rate problems, and inventory imbalance throughout the supply chain, results in:
- Revenue and even market-share loss
- Deterioration of customer satisfaction
- Production delays
- Higher labor and logistics expediting costs to prevent production line downtime
The pattern and source of revenues, costs and profits has been frequently and drastically shifting, meaning production and supply patterns are shifting too. Regulatory pressures continue to tighten, lowering margins and increasing uncertainty. Manufacturers have to meet regulatory targets while investing in new technologies and business models.
Key challenges are holding back these organizations when they take on digital initiatives. Current systems cannot keep up with the ‘Now’ paradigm: just-in-time, eCommerce, and real-time responsiveness and collaboration. In a complex and decentralized supply chain with a large number of products and raw and intermediate materials, it’s very easy for supply and demand to become misaligned. Producing the wrong product mix, carrying incorrect inventory levels, or ordering items at wrong place and at the wrong time can cause serious performance problems, both within your four walls and across a multi-echelon network of partners.
The underlying cause for these problems is the inability to perform planning and scenario analysis across the entire supply chain.
Where current ERP solutions and serialized planning across domains (and therefore long planning cycles) fall short, the One Network Solution’s key differentiation is the ability to perform Integrated Business Planning (IBP) and execution with Single Version of the Truth (SVOT) for the complete network. This method of aligning capacity, inventory, and logistics planning and execution in near real time across multiple tiers offers enormous benefits to many industries.
Several business factors are also driving the need for new types of solutions that span a continuum across supply, production, logistics, products, and partners:
- Higher frequencies of changes in the types of products
- Shorter and shorter product lifecycles
- Growing numbers of trading partners
- Increasingly decentralized supply chain
This drives a need for increased flexibility and speed in the supply chain. This coupled with constantly changing customer demand puts enormous pressure on supply chains.
The companies that win in this new economic reality will be those that align closely with suppliers to bolster local capacity and bring promising innovations to market quickly.
Fortunately, the technologies and processes that support supply chains are rapidly evolving, taking a more horizontal approach that breaks down silos, streamlines processes, and enables efficient, customer- driven collaboration across the entire supply chain network.
Integrated Business Planning (IBP) and Execution for the Digital Supply Chain
One Network’s Integrated Business Planning solution leverages the Real Time Value Network (RTVN) and the NEO Platform. It links your organization’s multi-year strategic plan and annual operating plan, monthly S&OP plans, and all operational plans. The goals are to plan and execute for profitability and business continuity, and to account for and minimize the effects of demand and supply variability.
The solution coordinates and synchronizes end-customer demand across all internal operations and key trading partners, including contract manufacturers, suppliers, logistics providers, and retailers. It empowers planners and executives to see the impact of specific changes. As a result, organizations can plan for profitability, variability, and continuity, and more effectively plan both tactically and strategically.
Furthermore, all actual execution data is captured in real time, enabling the organization to compare plans with what has actually happened or is currently happening, and also to execute plans across departments and trading partners. The highly scalable solution plans for multiple sites and multiple items concurrently in order to balance the needs across the entire network. IBP enabled by a digital network is part of the next generation tools to simultaneously improve customer service, speed, and efficiency.
Key IBP capabilities include:
- Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP)
- Order management and promising
- Demand planning and replenishment
- Multi-tier manufacturing, procurement and inventory planning and collaboration
- Logistics execution and the last mile
- Control Tower for full visibility and control
Requirements for Effective Integrated Business Planning (IBP)
There are several key elements needed to maximize the utility and benefits of IBP and execution:
- The One Network platform enables the ability to model the end-to-end value chain (i.e. from the forward most demand such as the customer or retail outlets, to DCs all the way to n-tier suppliers) in a unified fashion. This forms the real-time, single version of the truth (SVOT) for all network participants. One Network’s extensive supply chain network modules simultaneously and continuously plan and execute demand, supply, and logistics related operations.
- One Network’s Intelligent Autonomous AI agents, called NEO, are continuously monitoring the network for any changes. Once changes are detected, the intelligent NEO agents autonomously propagate applicable changes both upstream and downstream to balance the Demand-Supply equation.
- Multi-Enterprise Master Data Management (MDM) enables partners in the supply chain network to reconcile master data efficiently and accurately in order to manage information about customers, products, raw and intermediate materials, suppliers, locations, and other entities. Network-wide partners need to connect once only to the shared, network solution.
Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP)
S&OP creates and executes plans, and includes key trading partners’ plans. The solution links underlying systems to provide a complete business view that speeds up data gathering and planning processes, and analyzes the network-wide impact of decisions like promotions and new product introductions. Real-time data, taken directly from planning and execution systems, shortens business planning cycles and brings insight and alignment to the process. Using the network to conduct simulations and impact analyses makes it simple to compute directional profit and loss statements. The business can model and store multiple scenarios at each business level, encompassing the demand plan, finished goods plan, production plan, raw materials plan, and logistics.
Plans for Profitability. Planning for profitability enables the team to set targets for top-line and bottom-line goals and establish plans at the organization level (e.g. brand or site) while automatically aggregating the plans up to the corporate level. Furthermore, it computes the cost-of-goods-sold and any associated operational costs and matches them against their corporate goals. To achieve this financial view, other more traditional solutions require inflexible custom configurations or reports that may take weeks to compile.
Plans Out Variability. Variability – whether of demand or supply – remains a chief source of risk for today’s manufacturers and retailers. Plans out variability dramatically reduces demand variability by automatically computing demand for all products down to the channel/SKU level. The service also includes robust planning tools for the primary sources of demand variability, such as new product introductions and promotions. Furthermore, after computing demand, the service reduces supply variability by creating all necessary supply and operational plans for your organization and trading partners (e.g. raw material, production, inventory, distribution, material, commodity plans, and product mix).
Plans for Business Continuity. Planning for Business Continuity helps maximize business continuity by ensuring that the plans take into account the right suppliers and logistics providers. This is made possible by the fact that the service is designed to enable users to easily create, save, and compare multiple “what-if” scenarios at any level in the hierarchy without affecting the operations. Once a scenario plan is finalized it can be frozen, passing along all relevant plan information—for example promotions, new product introductions, and price changes—to planning and execution systems.
Projects Actuals. Finally, while the other enterprise systems are carrying out their transactions, the S&OP solution measures its S&OP plans against what is actually happening, and projects based on actual demand and supply what the future daily, weekly, monthly (or any time horizon) actuals will be. This process can take place as often as every day.
Order Management and Promising
The One Network Distributed Order Management (DOM) solution intelligently brokers orders across various systems and processes utilized by the multiple parties involved in replenishing an order. Leveraging the best way to achieve this, the solution provides a single, global view of all inventory available in order to intelligently source the line item components of that order. In doing so, it ensures that the business can meet both current and future customer demand while optimizing inventory, logistics, and asset utilization.
To deliver on the ability to intelligently broker and source orders across a complex network, the DOM solution looks beyond just the demand side solutions and leverages an advanced dynamic sourcing (DS) capability. This matches a growing number of market forces that make it imperative for global companies to consider leveraging a dynamic sourcing footprint. Their sourcing decisions must encompass an increasing number of variables such as lead times, logistics costs, currency swings, and regulations.
Key capabilities, which enable responsiveness to shifting customer demand, include:
- Order promising
- Customer delivery promise
- Intelligent order forecast sourcing
- Global inventory visibility
- Real time order execution
- Demand sensing
Artificial Intelligence in Order Management
AI Augmented Order Management and Execution
In addition to leveraging the Network Effect for DOM and dynamic sourcing, intelligent NEO agents infuse the network with intelligence. Intelligent agents continuously monitor the supply- chain wide network and can take quick proactive predefined action when disruptive events occur anywhere in the network. This near-instantaneous action based on early problem detection is the most effective way to dampen supply chain problems such as the “bullwhip” effect, and resolve problems while they are relatively minor and easier, faster and cheaper to fix.
NEO enables dramatic improvements in supply chain performance. Major sources of cost are reduced, costs such as expediting, unplanned overtime, production line setups and teardowns.
The intelligent NEO agents identify patterns, trends, and anomalies, and extract insights to inform execution decisions, make recommendations and autonomously execute them. In this context, NEO agents provide the ability to automate order execution based on predefined sets of rules and performance measurement targets.
Multi-Channel Order Aggregation
In addition, the DOM solution combines multi-channel order aggregation with global visibility to inventory, including delivery and service availability, enabling the “complete” order promise (available-to-promise, available-to-deliver and available-to-service). Essentially this solution offers the ability to “order from anywhere, fulfill from anywhere, and return to anywhere.” It includes optimized, rules-based order promising and scheduling, inventory and resource allocation from any internal or external source to meet both the conditions of the order and the requirements of your business.
Improved Customer Service
Outside of these core replenishment aspects, DOM also plays an important role in the overall customer experience by providing an environment to broker and manage orders from multiple sales channels to ensure that customer orders are executed to meet or exceed customer expectations. The order and shipment visibility across the supply network is a key driver related to the overall customer experience.
By providing a centralized order orchestration hub, the solution has the capability to provide a real time view of all of a customer’s purchases across all of the seller’s channels. This way, distributed order management becomes a key enabler of increased supply chain efficiency in addition to an improved customer experience.
The solution is designed to replace the legacy order management paradigm where systems were configured to link to a discrete number of specific plants or warehouses, limiting inventory visibility as well as the options companies have in sourcing their items. Legacy ERP infrastructures were designed to be static rather than dynamic, supporting individual sales channels with single threaded supply schema and segmenting groups of customers by channel, rather than as a network of individuals.
DOM orchestrates all aspects of inventory awareness, sourcing, and fulfillment to meet customer demand and expectations while optimizing the utilization of inventory and resources.
Order Promising and Allocation
Here is how order promising and allocation works with respect to retailers or direct consumers.
- The intelligent NEO Order Promising agents promise sales orders. The agents search the network in attempt to promise each order from a single site when possible. The sites that are promised from may be limited by promise zones. The NEO agents can respect site preference orders by cost along the site lane or by simple ranking within specified promise zones.
- The intelligent NEO order allocation agents perform a demand-supply match across multiple customers and suppliers in real time. They allocate the available supply to the appropriate customer based on priority, time period and other factors based on configurable business rules. They can operate on individual transactions and on transactions aggregated by customer channel.
The NEO agents work in conjunction with the other intelligent agents such as those for Replenishment, Order Aggregation and Order Sourcing to satisfy the planning needs for a wide array of supply chains. NEO agents support Make-to-Stock (MTS), Make-to-Order (MTO) and Configure-to-Order (CTO) allocation. MTS Allocation is the allocation of customer orders constrained by the minimum of a Quota and Supply capacity. In addition to the Quota and Supply capacity, the MTS agent will use fair share, freight schedule and other factors.
The Supply Allocation process are performed in two stages:
- Channel Allocation is outside the order firm period and aggregated for time periods. The agents respect channel-level priority for fair-share allocation of supply. Optionally Channel Allocation Quota can be shared with the Customer.
- Order Allocation is inside the firm period and constrained by the “quota” set by the Channel Allocation. Then the solution continuously orchestrates fulfillment execution for the organization and its trading partners to optimize for demand/supply priority, inventory positions of the demand sites, available and capable to promise supply, logistics capacity, and air and freight schedules.
Demand Planning and Replenishment
Customer-oriented supply chains may have thousands of locations and even more supply chain professionals and partners, delivering many SKUs to millions of customers, across countries around the world. This exacerbates the challenges, which include:
- Keeping on-time in-full (OTIF) level high while controlling supply chain cost
- Placing inventory at the right place to avoid stock-out and lost sales (promos included)
- Performing high frequency replenishment planning and re-planning especially for out-of-stock items in hours rather than in days
The Demand Planning and Replenishment solution includes these components:
Intelligent NEO Agents and the Autonomous Supply Chain: With One Network’s ability to model the end-to-end value chain (i.e. from stores to DCs to factories and all the way to n-tier suppliers), supply chain practitioners no longer have to fight the “bullwhip” effect. Intelligent NEO agents continuously monitor the network for any changes that can impact demand planning and replenishment. Once changes are detected, NEO agents autonomously propagate applicable changes both upstream and downstream to balance the demand-supply equation and eliminate any supply and demand signal distortions.
Demand Sensing and Autonomous Forecasting: One Network utilizes daily or even hourly Point of Sale (POS) data to create an item and distribution center level forecast as often as needed. The results are then “exploded” back to location level based on a smart pattern recognition agent that apportions forecast values based on the sales profile registered in the POS data for that location. Autonomous Forecasting determines where inventory should be moved and generates orders for replenishment. In doing so, the solution can remove days from replenishment cycle time.
NEO agents continuously monitor the demand signal (POS) for any anomalies, and they make autonomous demand and supply adjustments on an hourly or daily basis to ensure customer service levels are met.
Attach Rate Forecasting: What about forecasting for accessories and other related products? One Network enables the set-up of attach rates and their sales trends for secondary items. Then the Attach Ratio Engine calculates the attach rate between the primary and secondary items using historical sales data analysis so that their forecast can be generated simultaneously.
Perpetual Inventory and Continuous Planning to Minimize Stock-outs: If there’s nothing on the shelf or if items are unavailable, consumers cannot buy. Unlike most traditional planning systems, which rely on external data sources to update stock counts, the solution can automatically keep count of stock on-hand for all current products. This is vital for accurately computing replenishment needs at different locations. Companies configure the presets once and the system monitors inventory levels (count increments and decrements) across millions of product-location combinations.
Demand fluctuations automatically trigger orchestrated replenishment planning up the supply chain. The system will constantly adjust for all items/sites combinations, and it pro-actively intervenes when there is a projected stock out.
Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO): Manufacturing, Consumer Goods, Retail companies have complex and completely decentralized supply chains to support their operations. Carrying incorrect inventory levels across this multi-echelon network often causes problems such as:
- Inventory Shortage: Unable to meet target service levels at retail locations (out-of-stock, fill-rate problems)
- Inventory Surplus: Larger than desired days of supply (DOS) resulting in increased cost of sales
- Increased Waste due to shorter product life, leading to unnecessary costs in buying, storing and disposing of goods
MEIO maintains the desired customer service level at the service locations while optimizing the service levels and inventory across the whole network. The solution optimizes the inventory costs, subject to designed effective fill rates (desired service levels), enterprise-wide constraints (budgets), site constraints (capacity), and item constraints (critical items).
Backward Propagation of Demand to Upstream Tiers: Can the system effectively propagate demand from store all the way back to the n-level vendor tier in near real-time? Yes. The system precisely computes net requirements based on stock on-hand and on-order to generate accurate order forecasts (i.e. supply inbound requirements). One Network offers distributors and vendors the ability to view and operate with accurate long-term forecasts so they can plan production and distribution accordingly.
Multi-Tier Capacity, Procurement and Inventory Planning and Collaboration
Customer demand is continuously translated across each tier and site in the network. Demand propagation across the supply network considers the current demand forecast, inventory, production schedules, in transit supply, supply commitments, Bills of Materials (BOM), carrier pickup and delivery schedules, and the transportation network between sites. This provides each site (across n-tiers) with accurate real-time demand visibility, as permitted by the network relationships each party has agreed to, at each site, upstream and downstream to the end customer. Key capabilities include:
- Constrained Multi Echelon Supply and Production Planning with execution and collaboration across N-tiers
- Integrated distribution and transport planning with industry-leading execution capabilities
Continuous multi-tier tactical planning and intelligent NEO agents automatically create and adjust procurement and production orders, transportation orders, shipping and loading instructions, and pickup and delivery carrier appointments. Planning NEO agents continuously monitor execution streams in real time to adjust plans and respond to changing conditions including predicted weather impacts on site capacity and transport lanes, missed shipments, delayed production, cancelled orders, and unexpected demand fluctuations. Here are some examples of the types of decisions agents can make or recommend for approval before execution:
- When, how much, and where to procure or make product
- Predictive detection and proactive mitigation of stock outs, late supply, supply delays, plan-to-actual deviations, cost overruns, and revenue shortfall
- Cancel, change and create transport, replenishment, procurement, production orders directly with partners on the network, to execute agent decisions immediately
