Capacity Management

Increase the resilience of your supply chains through smart capacity management with your suppliers

Optimize S&OP through early capacity confirmation

When it comes to procuring sought-after, limited goods, things can get really tight. To avoid bottlenecks and secure quantities in the long-term, foresighted, cyclical coordination with your suppliers is absolutely essential. Your suppliers should be able to identify trends and know as precisely as possible what capacities will be needed in the long-term. The more transparently you communicate your planning, the better your suppliers can adapt to it and take precautions to secure future supplies.

SupplyOn Capacity Management continuously shows your suppliers your future demands and compares them with the committed capacities. In addition, sales fluctuations and product lifecycle changes are displayed and mirrored with your supplier network. Intelligent alerts inform you about possible deviations or disruptions so that you can take countermeasures well in advance. Supply bottlenecks in your supplier network and the related disruptions of your production can thus be optimally prevented. The transfer of data to your S&OP plan ensures smooth planning and secures your own supply capability.

How capacity management builds resilience into supply chains

By matching demand on the customer side with the supplier’s capacities, the two worlds can be reconciled. The focus is on medium-term production and supply capacities, usually in the range of six to 18 months.
