According to Gartner, a supply chain planning (SCP) solution is “a platform that provides technology support which allows a company to manage, link, align, collaborate and share its planning data across an extended supply chain. It supports demand creation through to the detailed supply-side response and from strategic planning through tactical-level planning. An SCP solution is the planning decision repository for a defined end-to-end supply chain and is the environment in which end-to-end integrated supply chains are managed. It establishes a single version of the truth for the plan data and decisions, regardless of the underlying execution technology environment.”1

Evaluation by Gartner includes an assessment of core capabilities:

  • “Demand planning — Typical capabilities include demand forecasting and consensus demand planning.
  • Supply planning — Typical capabilities include inventory planning, replenishment planning, order promising, production planning and production scheduling.
  • Support for aligning planning decisions across the enterprise and across multiple planning time horizons.”

It also includes "an evaluation of optional capabilities:

  • Advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Digital supply chain twin
  • Integrated business planning (IBP)
  • Continuous planning
  • Supply chain segmentation”

The report evaluated a total of 18 vendors, and Kinaxis was recognized for its ability to execute and completeness of vision in the Leaders’ quadrant.
