Productos o servicios que se demandan:

Supply Chain Planning today is still based on old methods and standards that are widely supported by various commercial software products. These products are closely tied to the old way of planning that was developed in a world in which the technological advances that we know today were unfathomable. As a result, they suffer from the following pitfalls:
• They run in a hierarchical, serial, batch mode, leading to plans being out of date for long periods
• They come with a limited set of pre-defined, locked-in algorithms that cannot be improved or swapped
• They cannot take advantage of new signals and events in the supply chain without bolt-on post-processing
P&G believe they have strong reasons to believe that the way to rescue supply chain planning from the past is through a paradigm shift toward the use of crowdsourced building blocks instead of locked solutions that are tied to specific technology providers. They believe in the possibility of continuous, event-based planning via configurable, smart, and interactive software modules (such as, but not limited to intelligent agents, algorithms, etc.) able to generate and update plans at all stages of the supply chain real-time in a distributed model. Such a system would be horizontally extendable to take advantage of new events and signals and could be optimized at the global and local levels to achieve the desired business results.
The challenge found when it comes to implementing this vision is with harvesting the said building blocks (e.g., configurable modules) that can be stitched together for a complete, end-to-end solution. This is the only way to achieve the goal that is economically viable, as opposed to building them each from scratch.
They are looking for plug-in software that can perform one or more of the following functions:
Demand Management:
  • Multi-Model Statistical Forecasting
  • Promotion & Event Management
  • Initiative Planning
  • Forecast Accuracy
Distribution Network Planning:
  • Inventory Allocation & Optimization
  • Network Balancing
  • Phase-In & Phase-Out
  • What-If Analysis
Production Planning:
  • Resource Scheduling (Lines & Unit Ops)
  • Capacity Evaluation (Auto-Levelling)
  • Rough-Cut Capacity Planning
  • Site-Level Initiative Planning
Transportation Planning:
  • Transport Route Optimization
  • Truck Load Planning & Load Building
  • Transportation Forecasting
Material Supply Management:
  • Supplier Material Schedules
  • Material Plan Sufficiency
  • Material Change Management

Tipo de acuerdo que se persigue: Acuerdo comercial con Asistencia técnica
