SAP Integrated Business Planning

Supply chains are becoming increasingly complex in today's customer-driven markets.  Customers' expectations of a product or service are changing. Companies operate globally, more diversified and introducing new products more frequently.


The result is a multitude of challenges in supply chain planning and execution:

  • Complex logistics models
  • Volatile market conditions
  • Huge amounts of data that need to be processed
  • Many systems operating in silos, leading to planning and execution gaps
  • A growing number of stakeholders in the planning process
  • Shorter product life cycles
  • Increased customisation of products
  • High importance and pressure for leaner inventories
