  • Simulation and comparison of scenarios: Run simulations of demand or supply changes for what-if analysis and compare scenarios for fast, informed decision-making.
  • Robust statistical models: Use sophisticated forecasting algorithms combined with machine learning and pre- and post-processing algorithms.
  • Rough-cut planning: Develop a tactical rough-cut capacity plan and consider capacity and material constraints simultaneously.
  • Supply chain resilience: Buffer supply and demand uncertainty through decoupling points across the supply chain.


Prepare for unexpected events and manage shortage situations quickly by using the SAP S/4HANA solution for advanced ATP.

  • Efficient stock management: Manage shortage situations by allocating stocks to key customers, considering sales and delivery constraints.
  • Effective product availability management: Oversee business priorities and protect customer interest while confirming orders en masse.
  • Intelligent decisions: Understand the influence of product availability and other delivery constraints during order confirmation by analyzing supply and demand and product allocation.
  • Smart selection of alternatives: Improve order fill rate by intelligently selecting stocks from alternative locations during supply shortages.


Manage logistics efficiently across warehousing, fulfillment, and distribution and analyze reshoring capacity and capabilities.

  • Transportation resource tracking and monitoring: Keep track of the current stock and status of your transportation resources according to type and location and monitor resource-relevant key performance indicators.
  • Transportation execution: Run your logistics faster, more dynamically, and more responsively with improved cargo handling and reduced costs.
  • Outbound logistics management: Enable warehouse order optimization, wave management, packing control, and process monitoring.
  • Integration and monitoring: Use comprehensive graphical monitoring to identify, avoid, and solve potential issues with insight.
  • Logistics optimization: Improve services by increasing visibility and control with transportation management software.
