SAP Business All-In-One | Parts Demand Planning

Parts Demand Planning

SAP Business All-In-One ERP system offers midsize manufacturing and distribution businesses forecasting services that cover the entire life cycle of parts for improved accuracy in parts demand planning. The parts demand planning feature is a function of the solution’s Supply Chain Management (SCM) module that provides complete transparency throughout the supply chain from demand through delivery.

Parts demand planning is based on Bills of Distribution (BOD), which pre-define the distribution routes for parts. Demand planning continuously analyzes past forecast performance and automatically adjusts forecast parameters for more efficient planning.

  • Gain a transparent view into inventory levels, supply chain costs, data, and processes for increased efficiency.

  • Reduce operating costs with process automation.

  • Respond quickly to fluctuating demand of parts requirements and necessary customization.

  • Gain greater responsiveness for improved delivery capabilities and increased customer satisfaction.

  • Improve forecast accuracy via better modeling of demand quantities and events.

  • Increase data maintenance efficiency with aggregated forecast-parameter profile maintenance.
