Analytics Leader Voices Its Opinions on S&OP State of Affairs
Today’s retail companies are realizing the importance of creating an optimal balance between supply and demand, with a focus on sensing and shaping demand

upstream downstream logistic  not only from the upstream manufacturing warehouses (vertically), but also across downstream customer facility warehouses to more efficiently balance inventory (supply). In fact, you can run “What If” scenarios to determine the effects of increased customer service, improved demand forecasts, lead times, and other related inventory factors to “shape” supply. We have found that in many cases you can actually lower upstream manufacturing warehouse customer service levels and inventories while Read More
Are Manhattan Associates and RedPrairie's Paths Really Diverging?
My 2009 series on a few good supply chain management (SCM) players portrayed Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH) and RedPrairie Corporation as fierce

upstream downstream logistic  Model Quality Testing With 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) models taking on a broader and more significant role in the development of new products, CAD files must flow smoothly into downstream applications. Sometimes, however, errors do occur. An off-the-shelf software tool can detect problems in the design stage so they aren’t discovered at a crucial moment in the manufacturing process, when it may be costly—or even too late—to correct them.

Manufacturing Software for an Integrated Steel Plant
Manufacturing processes for an integrated steel plant typically encompass three distinct types of manufacturing: flow manufacturing, process manufacturing, and

The software should be capable of defining internal orders for these internal customers. Internal customer orders . Most of the upstream plants produce intermediate products that do not have properties that can be directly derived from the ordered finished products. Therefore, the internal customer in the downstream flow of product Read More
