Supply Chain Planning

Publish Date

This Supply Chain Planning (SCP) market research study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide,all regions, and most major countries.

Supply Chain Planning Benefits Extend Beyond Cost Cutting

Supply chain planning (SCP) solutions use statistical algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning, optimization techniques, and heuristics to solve supply chain problems that occur in different planning horizons (one week to one month for operational planning, one month to several months for tactical planning, and one year to multiple years for strategic planning).

The return on investment of supply chain planning has always been good, but now it is even better.  Software-as-a-Service solutions have sped time-to-benefit.  Public cloud solutions mitigate the risks of customization and thus speed implementations and greatly simplify upgrades.

While there are a variety of payback categories from the use of supply chain planning solutions, the ability to reduce inventories (raw material, work-in-process, or finished goods inventories, depending upon the solution) and effectively balance demand and supply in a manner that allows core corporate goals (profitability or market share growth) to be more reliably achieved are the central value propositions.  Increasingly, the ability to profitably fulfill customer orders quickly is emerging as a key reason to put in SCP solutions.  Machine learning, while long used in basic demand planning, offers the prospect of better supply planning.
