Supply Chain Planning

Infor Supply Chain Planning is a software platform containing these modules:

  • Infor Integrated Business Planning for creating a balance between demand and supply
  • Demand Planning for creating a statistical forecast and optimizing safety stock policy
  • Production Scheduling for creating a multi-level sequence for production resources and tanks
  • Supply Planning for creating a (cost-) optimized and constrained allocation of the supply.

Infor Integrated Business Planning

Infor Integrated Business Planning is a component of Infor Supply Chain Planning. It helps enterprises to optimize their businesses by aligning strategic plans with operational execution.

It contains preconfigured processes, collaborative workflows, and key performance indicators to create a framework for balancing demand, supply, and budget. It enables robust decision-making based on a holistic enterprise view of demand, supply, and financial conditions to better serve customers while enhancing profit and margins.

Infor Demand Planning

Infor Demand Planning is a component of Infor Supply Chain Planning.

Demand Planning simplifies and accelerates your forecasting process with an approach based on innovative technology and sophisticated forecasting methods.

Extensive industry-specific templates support fast and cost-effective implementation. Demand Planning helps create accurate demand plans rapidly, monitor the effectiveness of existing plans, set inventory targets, and optimize operating goals to meet demand, ensuring higher service levels at lower cost.

Infor Production Scheduling

Production Scheduling is a component of Infor Supply Chain Planning. It is a sophisticated sequencing and scheduling application for the process and semi-process industries. Production Scheduling uses the production supply plans as input and generates a multi-level network of batches. It enables schedulers to create feasible schedules, considering multiple constraints such as shelf life, tank capacity, work calendars, utilities, and enabling resources. It optimizes sequences based on complex product transition matrices allowing for complex cleaning regimes while minimizing cleaning time.

Infor Supply Planning

Infor Supply Planning is a component of Infor Supply Chain Planning. It facilitates a robust visual analysis and holistic review of your supply chain plans.

Following the publication of the enterprise demand plans and inventory targets, Infor Supply Planning considers all relevant supply chain constraints and parameters to automatically calculate the best time-phased supply plans. These plans include purchase, production, inventory, and distribution plans and provide information on required replenishment using sophisticated planning engines based on heuristics and optimization.
