The Supply Planning app assists manufacturing organizations to visualize and plan their supply chains from Distribution Operations back to Production Planning. Manage your supply chain by inventory, order shortage, and capacity exceptions. Use the calculated suggested order quantities by week or manually override to proactively account for high demand or supply shortages.
