Oracle APS Makes Its Debut
Oracle Corporation officially released its Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) applications recently amid the usual fanfare. Long in coming, APS still has significant ground to cover.
: intervals for any global ATP application, regardless of the data model, to refresh ATP figures for use by global sales organizations. Targeted for its larger clients with distributed enterprises, the APS Global ATP Server competes directly with i2 s Supply Chain Planner, which is more mature in functionality that polls multiple sites for available capacity and material. APS brings Oracle into the Supply Chain Management arena, but Oracle is unlikely to see significant revenues from it until calendar

: optimizing demand, available-to-promise (ATP)/ capable-to-promise (CTP) and inventory management, while taking constraints and daily realities into consideration.

For example, the product does not address multimodal transportation as a shared or

appreciate the RRM’s available-to-promise (ATP) and capable-to-promise (CTP) capabilities. One additional difference is the native quality management module, and the user’s ability to know, at any time, the exact status of any particular order and its related items, whether they are work in progress (WIP), completed, or in a “quality vault” (or quarantine, if you will), or whether the operation is down for whatever reason, etc. The system provides the manufacturing personnel with the “net

While previously NetSuite mainly targeted outsourced offshore manufacturing, NetSuite Manufacturing Edition now caters to manufacturers that make their own products.

In addition, the recipes have variable elements to them, and the planning process also has to match often fixed supply of ingredients with variable seasonal demand to
Advanced Planning and Scheduling: A Critical Part of Customer Fulfillment
The face of business is rapidly evolving from traditional brick-and-mortar facades to electronic ones. While web businesses spend considerable effort in polishing Internet front ends with sophisticated graphics and animation, they must also give attention to back end fulfillment operations.
