One of the most challenging elements of the supply chain is
planning. Without a single and comprehensive view of planning data, it’s
extremely difficult to make efficient decisions that ensure customers are
meeting their business goals. To help organizations address this challenge and
achieve real-time visibility into supply and demand planning, Oracle has
introduced Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Planning Advisor.
Utilizing the extreme performance delivered by Oracle Engineered
Systems, the new Oracle
In-Memory Application enables real-time insight into supply and
demand; allowing organizations to make faster, better decisions that maximize
revenue and increase profits.
- Thousands of SKUs and hundreds of thousands of
components that make up those SKUs cause material planners/buyers to
search through huge amounts of data to know if their supply can meet the
demand. This new application enables planners and buyers to make
critical decisions in supply sourcing, based on real time planning
information, and shop floor realities. Graphical indicators allow planners
to easily visualize and make sense of hundreds of thousands of MRP
messages in real-time. This new In Memory application provides a
transformational approach to allow companies to innovate and significantly
change how they do business today.
- Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Planning
Advisor is specifically built and optimized for extreme performance on Oracle
Engineered Systems, including Oracle
Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, and Oracle
SuperCluster which can manage large and complex data sets in
real-time, central to in-memory applications.
Oracle software on Oracle hardware, customers can lower the total cost of
ownership, mitigate risk, improve user productivity and leverage Oracle
Enterprise Manager 12c to streamline management while benefiting from the value
of a single point of accountability. Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne
In-Memory Planning Advisor is yet another example that Oracle applications run
best on Oracle systems.
Real-Time Insight into Supply and Demand
- In order to understand if supply meets demand, material
planners and buyers need to view days of supply, current inventory levels,
supply and demand, inventory in inspection, past due supply, available to
promise, held lots, and safety stock information. Oracle’s JD
Edwards EnterpriseOne In-Memory Planning Advisor consists of two primary
components that combine existing functionality of Materials Requirements
Planning (MRP) / Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP) with new
real-time functionality in order to see all of this information in one
- Planning Advisor Summary: A workspace that allows
planners to view summary information about their items, including current
inventory on hand, days until first receipt, safety stock and lead time.
- In-Memory Planning Advisor Console: Helps planners
manage fluctuating supply and demand by seeing in real-time how factors
such as bringing in dates, increasing quantities or canceling supply will
impact the overall supply required to meet demand.
