MSD LogoTo continue delivering innovative medicines to patients in an increasingly competitive and changing world, MSD (known as Merck & Co., Inc. in the US and Canada) set out to create a world-class supply chain. The company recognized that the only way to elevate planning capabilities and optimize inventory levels was with an integrated supply chain solution that enabled end-to-end planning, visibility and decision-making. With synchronized supply chain data available across all divisions, MSD could embrace concurrent planning, where all supply nodes are planned simultaneously.
