Procter & Gamble has successfully added Distribution Requirements Planning and Inventory Deployment
capabilities to the integrated OMP Supply Chain Planning software solution
. This follows a global roll-out of OMP to support Site Integrated Planning processes in all categories and regions. As a result, OMP strengthens the end-to-end Value Stream Planning
vision at P&G.
OMP’s Unison Planning™
integrates the Value Stream Analyst
role, combining detailed scheduling
, production planning and distribution planning. Ultimately, it enables full network visibility
from production through to the final distribution centers and drives a fundamental change to the planning processes. OMP concurrently optimizes the integrated multi-stage production and multi-level distribution plan, while considering complex manufacturing, inventory and deployment constraints. Furthermore, a powerful hyperlinked cockpit allows what-if evaluations to quickly address exceptions and identified risks. The solution delivers better and faster plans in a fully integrated way with the detailed scheduling, closely connected to the SAP ERP backbone via OMP Integrator for SAP.
“With OMP’s Unison Planning, we are adding an innovative dimension
to our centralization of planning in a few Global Planning Service Centers,” says Harald Fischer, Global Supply Planning Application Manager at Procter & Gamble. "OMP enables increased agility and synchronization
. The supply chains of our products are now planned in OMP consistently throughout the day. The end-to-end approach of OMP optimizes the launch planning of new SKUs in our different markets while minimizing remnants on phase-out products and raw materials. Unison Planning is a step closer to fully automated planning.”
"We are very pleased to further strengthen our 20-year-partnership
with Procter & Gamble,” adds Dirk Van Ginderachter, Associate Director at OMP. “Thanks to our integrated planning approach, Procter & Gamble was able to shorten end-to-end planning cycles to a single shift in an industry where weekly cycles are still common. In case of demand or supply events, this immediately results in significant response time reductions and service level improvements.”
