Movex Supply Chain Management Helps Companies Build A Collaborative Value Chain


Fully-integrated SCM suite provides end-to-end supply chain functionality encompassing demand and supply chain planning, advanced planning and scheduling, multi-site planning.

SCHAUMBERG, IL - March 18, 2002 - At National Manufacturing Week's Enterprise IT Show, Intentia will highlight the Movex Supply Chain Management solution, a suite of collaborative software applications designed to support and manage the extended supply chain for increased efficiency, productivity, profitability and customer service.

With supply chains becoming ever more complex, and profit margins becoming tighter for manufacturers and distributors in every industry, the need for tools that provide greater visibility and control of information, material and financial flows throughout the extended enterprise is escalating. Movex Supply Chain Management applications were developed to fill this need, says Henrik Billgren, Vice President of Marketing for Intentia Americas.

"Efficient, customer-focused supply chain management is key to success," states Billgren. "Short lead times, low margins, high order volumes and critical delivery dates make supply chain optimization more important than ever. Movex SCM offers a powerful method for supporting the planning, scheduling and fulfillment of the extended supply chain, resulting in optimum customer service and maximum profitability. "

Movex Supply Chain Management software applications include:

Movex Demand Planner (DMP), an effective tool for accurately managing and manipulating demand. Movex DMP allows companies to decide how best to deploy resources to maximize customer service levels, sales revenues and profitability. For manufacturers and distributors alike, accurate demand planning can help eliminate the demand ripple effects in the supply chain that cause excessive inventory levels and tie up capital. Movex DMP also manages new product introductions and promotions planning, allowing for collaborative planning and decision-making. The application works closely with Movex Supply Chain Planner - in fact, the output from the demand planner serves as input to supply chain planning to optimize the organization's supply chain.

Movex Supply Chain Planner (SCP), a powerful decision support tool for supply chain planning at the tactical and strategic levels. Movex SCP offers an advanced optimizer that calculates ideal material flow, and balances capacity and lead-time constraints for manufacturing, warehousing and transportation. The result is a financially optimized master demand and delivery schedule. Movex SCP improves collaboration with supply chain partners, reduces capital tied up in inventories, and optimizes decision-making to maximize revenues and customer service levels.

Movex Advanced Production Planner (APP) is an advanced planning and scheduling solution designed to help manufacturers maximize resource utilization, while improving their ability to meet promised delivery dates and quickly react to market trends and changes in customer demand.

Movex APP capabilities include constraint-based MRP, just-in-time planning, manpower requirements planning, advanced scheduling and sequence optimization with line/cell control. The application will automatically schedule production orders against the available production capacity and raw materials and then fit maintenance work orders requiring downtime into "production windows." As a result, a complete and realistic optimized schedule can be produced for all production and maintenance resources.

Movex Multi-Site Planner (MSP) serves to synchronize order and material flow throughout the entire supply chain, from purchase orders to manufacturing and distribution orders, ensuring that customer orders are filled on time. Movex MSP provides integrated distribution and production planning to afford global visibility of any existing material shortages or capacity bottlenecks. It also enables the timely release of orders and supports stock level analyses across multiple warehouses to ensure that materials and products are available when and where they are needed to fulfill customer orders. Movex MSP features interactive decision support functionality, enabling planners to pinpoint problems, run "what if" scenarios and make more informed decisions.
