信息 have announced that AB World Foods, a division of Associated British Foods (ABF) has completed the first phase deployment of 信息 供应链管理 (SCM).  信息 SCM Demand Planning, 信息 SCM Inventory Planner and 信息 SCM Replenishment Planner will help AB World Foods build a foundation for managing its global supply chain, enabling the food manufacturer to predict and shape customer demand with greater accuracy.

As part of an integrated business planning strategy, AB World Foods will use 信息 SCM solutions to define the demand, inventory and replenishment requirements of its global operations. 这将包括AB World Foods生产的产品以及第三方生产的库存。

Prior to the implementation of 信息 SCM, divisions of AB World Foods such as G Costa used spreadsheets based on retrospective sales performance over the previous two months. 此过程提供了需求的统一预测,没有考虑各种产品的不同需求模式。 因此,AB世界食品公司某些品牌的库存过多而其他品牌的供应不足。 

AB World Foods chose 信息 SCM following an extensive review of the market.  AB World Foods was impressed by 信息s professional services team, and 信息 SCM scored highest on the basis of functionality and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). 

AB World Foods is building its supply chain around 信息. We have already consolidated our enterprise applications onto 信息 ERP BPCS and this new demand forecast will help manage a lot of our business, explains Gary Brookes, head of supply chain, AB World Foods. 鉴于我们约75%的成本与供应链相关,因此这是一个巨大的责任。

在分阶段实施过程中,我们看到了一些深远的好处。 对于库存计划,我们已经将服务水平从91%提高到96%。 最近,我们已经超过了98.5%的目标。 此外,我们将成品库存减少了约20%-节省了超过200万美元的资金。 

销售和营销团队过去与供应链部门有些脱节。通过将需求计划与我们的库存计划相集成,我们显着改善了销售和风险报告。 这有助于将两个团队聚集在一起,并改善了学科之间的沟通。 
Looking forward, AB World Foods plans to use 信息 SCM to improve supplier relationship management and develop strategic demand forecasts for the next 12 and 24 months. 这将有助于指导库存补充行动。 

鉴于AB世界食品公司某些产品组合的专业性质,这可能会成为关键的成本问题。 Brookes解释说,在过去,某些产品或成分的有限供应会影响盈利能力。 当出现短缺时,我们无法准确预测我们是否需要购买椰子奶等食品。 结果,我们不得不寻找替代供应商,并付出了一定的代价。

Brookes concludes: 信息 SCM is going to be more than software within AB World Foods. 这将成为我们供应链流程和相关系统的基础。 这些系统将反过来定义我们计划的制造资源计划(MRP)项目的方法。 到目前为止,我们所看到的已经给了我们很大的信心。
