Business value

Companies can now use Planning Optimization to ensure that on-hand items with limited shelf life automatically get replenished if they expire prior to being used.

Feature details

Companies that have items with limited shelf life can now take advantage of Planning Optimization to automatically replenish expired goods. This enhancement enables you to consider the shelf life of perishable items during master planning, which ensures that demand is covered with goods that have the desired shelf life and that existing on-hand goods are replenished when expired.

Planning Optimization benefits

With Planning Optimization, companies can benefit from:

  • Significantly improved performance and scalability with in-memory processing.
  • Minimized system impact on other processes made possible by running master planning as a separate service.
  • Near real-time insights into requirement changes, achieved by running master planning several times daily during office hours.
