Integration of planning and execution remains a major need for manufacturing companies in supply chain management and control, as it provides them with tools that can improve demand responsiveness to last-minute changes in terms of production and purchasing. One of the key factors lies in a company’s ability to synchronize procurement and production aspects: the former involves the development and integrated management of supplier networks, and the latter involves the production network. Today many companies operate within global supply networks, including customers, suppliers and production facilities in different countries, which makes synchronization of the different players a difficult task.
An important success factor for the coming years will be the convergence of manufacturing operations (MOM), and planning (Sales & Operation Planning) and execution (Supply Chain Execution) processes.
The ability to provide solutions in this area has enabled leading companies like sedApta, which can support both S&OP and S&OE processes, to be referenced by Gartner, for the third consecutive year, in their report “Mid-Market Context: Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning Solutions”.
For the past 10 years, sedApta has collaborated with Gartner’s leading analysts in IT manufacturing and supply chain management. Through this collaboration, a unique and shared strategic market positioning report for sedApta has been produced.
