The RapidResponse® Supply Action Management application enables:
Exception driven supply analysis dashboards
Through dashboard metrics, highlight supply actions for a production or material planner by type (e.g. expedite, new, cancel, delay)
Supply action priorities
Prioritize production and material planners' activities to focus on actions that are both manageable and will provide the greatest impact to corporate performance metrics such as revenue or margin.
Identification of potential supply action resolution options
Be presented with resolution options by type, to understand if alternatives exist such as exploring an inventory transfer from another site, as opposed to manufacturing/purchasing additional supply.
Simulation, collaboration and consequence analysis
In cases where decisions on supply actions cannot be made by the planner alone, collaborate and simulate actions with other individuals and groups to explore resolution alternatives, such as capacity increases, and alternative sources of supply.
Transactional execution integration with ERP
Once actions related to purchase orders, purchase requisitions, work orders, allocations, or transfer orders are decided upon, they can be committed back to transactional systems such as ERP.
