Supply Chain Planning 

IFS Supply Chain PlanningTM supports integrated planning across a supply network including multiple sites and legal entities. Forecasts and actual demands are captured at the end-point of the supply chain, turned into time-phased supply plans and transferred to external suppliers or internal manufacturing sites. This improves the integration between sites resulting in reduced inventories and improved customer service. It enables efficient, simultaneous planning of all sites within a planning network. Parts defined as multi-site planned are planned simultaneously on all sites in the planning network. Distribution orders are used in the planning process for immediate communication of demand and supply between sites and throughout the multi-site product structure for multi-site planned parts.
