Adexa Discovers Missing Link
New business application ties financials to demand and operations planning
Los Angeles, Ca. (Nov. 10, 2003) - Adexa, Inc., a leading provider of integrated supply chain and performance management solutions, today announced the Beta release of Collaborative Operations Planning (COP), a new business application in the company's Enterprise Global Planning System (eGPS) solution-set. COP dynamically considers all costs required for planning, along with material and capacity constraints, to identify the most profitable plans and schedules to meet demand.
"Adexa COP provides the missing Intelligent link between financially driven operations planning and demand planning, within the same system," said Cyrus Hadavi, Adexa's president and chief executive officer. "COP ensures financial targets are considered during every phase of the planning process to drive incrementally higher returns. Quite simply, COP focuses the operations side of a business on results that equate to higher shareholder value."
The cost of doing business varies from order to order. Each transaction can have higher or lower material costs, manufacturing costs, subcontracting costs and a litany of other factors that impact its profitability. COP automatically measures the profitability of every step in the manufacturing process to develop an operations plan that is optimized to provide the highest returns. All stakeholders, both enterprise and extended enterprise (customers, supply chains and contract manufacturers) can gain interoperable connectivity to the plan over the Internet, to see exactly what's expected of them, and to make changes to the plan as circumstances warrant. The impact of change is dynamically propagated throughout the plan and re-optimized for profitability by COP, which is scheduled for general release in January 2004.
