Comprehensive Constraint-Based Planning

E2open supports key constructs such as recipes, operations, batches, capacities, process orders and vessels. Process and discrete planning can be integrated in the same instance to support mixed-mode manufacturing.

Increase your agility and maximize efficiencies:

  • Constraint-based planning that balances conflicting objectives while optimizing capacity, materials and labor

  • Multi-enterprise visibility into materials and capacity across your extended supply network

  • Recipe Workbench that maintains recipes, showing operations, bills of materials and bills of capacity

  • Interactive planning to enable users to make on-the-fly changes to supply orders and see the impact on inventory and utilization without re-planning

  • Ability to meet customer requirements for minimum remaining shelf life with an automated process that takes into account raw materials expiration dates network-wide

  • 20-30% reduction in inventory due to more efficient materials planning

  • 1-5% higher revenues as a result of maximized demand fulfillment

  • 30-50% productivity improvement from automation and exception management
