The Replenishment Workbench ensures enterprises have the right products, in the right places, at the right times. A well-executed replenishment plan needs to be demand-driven to account for service levels, fluctuations in demand, and changes in product mix per location.
Order Promising is part of the E2 Planning & Response suite, which is designed to enable enterprises to plan, create, evaluate, and execute scenarios in real time. It includes both operational and financial data in their decision-making process to determine the best plan for the planner to review and execute interactively. Order Promising is designed to minimize error-prone and manually intensive workarounds and the all too common firefighting response mode to increase customer satisfaction.
Confidently follow through on shipping and production commitments with Clear to Build. Clear to Build is a proven solution that checks availability of all components across multiple levels, ensuring orders are released into production only when all required materials are covered by qualified supply. It synchronizes inbound materials flow to increase fulfillment velocity while reducing inventory and cost.
Network Constrained Planning produces a feasible plan quickly, allowing planners to easily identify bottlenecks in their ability to deliver their products on time. Even if it’s not possible to resolve an identified bottleneck, NCP ensures the most important demands will still be met because the business rules are incorporated into planning using the powerful Priority Manager.
Network Requirements Planning translates a consensus demand plan, or multiple simulation versions, into material and capacity requirements on all levels of the supply chain. The demand signal is being net against inventories, in-transits, and work-in-process. This allows for complete visibility of the demand-supply match in your extended network for excess, shortage, and risk analysis.

The E2 Collaboration Center Supply Dashboard provides cross-network, real-time visibility into forecasts, orders, inventory movements, and logistics across the multiple tiers of a trading network. It presents at-a-glance views of critical KPIs such as supplier responsiveness, cost to serve, inventory liability, and gross margin. The Supply Dashboard uniquely monitors the “Big Data” of global trading network operations in real time and provides critical event alerts related to parts shortages, cost, and risk.
Global and business events such as supply disruptions, demand spikes or troughs, and natural disasters have demonstrated the need for not only cross-network supply chain visibility, but also the need to execute activities across multiple tiers of partners in a trading network. Brand owners need a new, strategic solution that enables a shared “view” of the network, seamless multi-enterprise process integration, and collaborative exception capabilities in order to sense issues and respond quickly and intelligently. Learn how visionary companies are integrating large volumes of data from trading partners, processing the data into actionable information, and resolving exceptions inside tight execution windows for improved management of corporate assets.
E2open Multi-Tier Cost Management (MTCM) offers high-tech brand owners and their trading partners a cloud-based solution designed to enable continuous cost management across multiple tiers of a trading network for increased profitability. While traditional PLM solutions manage the bill of material (BOM) of record, E2open MTCM enables management of the "execution BOM," a dynamic BOM capable of monitoring trading network activity and facilitating frequent updates and continuous, collaborative optimization of BOM-related costs, cost forecasts, and rebates.
The business model for product innovation, manufacturing, and fulfillment has changed dramatically. With this change, brand owners now have partners distributed around the world using different means and systems for information management. This model of indirect management has created significant communication gaps, prompting the cry of, "How can I manage what I can't see?" This is a different problem that requires a different solution, and E2open is the industry's first and only strategic solution for managing business across today's complex trading networks.
