Supply Planning Software for Fast, Feasible, and Profitable Plans


Managing complex multi-tier supply chains is fraught with challenges, especially when it comes to products with highly variable demand and short lifecycles. With its unique customer-driven, rules-based approach to planning, e2open Supply Planning quickly delivers feasible and profitable plans while enabling users to easily identify and address supply bottlenecks.

Quick supply response for the multi-enterprise supply chain

Lost orders, disappointed customers, and high costs

Difficulties finding the source of constraints and delays

Supply chain complexities can make it extremely challenging to pinpoint the real source of constraints and delays in production and delivery. Is it a component shortage delaying high-priority orders or a capacity bottleneck? Would a part substitution, alternate supplier, expedited production, or reallocation of supply be the answer? Manufacturers can be stymied by all the interdependencies, especially when using a combination of internal and outsourced manufacturing. Often the result is wasted time, lost orders, disappointed customers, and high costs.
