Experts discussing digital supply chain process

What Is the Digital Supply Chain?

Unlike the traditional supply chain, the digital supply chain is based on web functions. The digital supply chain takes full advantage of continuous electronic connectivity, full integration of all systems, and data from smart components.

Imagine the impact of the latest technologies, like AI, cloud, and machine learning combined with vast amounts of real-time data in a single, common, digital thread that integrates every part of the product life cycle. Every process is going to be harmonized, predictive, and more intelligent bringing productivity throughout the lifecycle.

Digitalization in Supply Chain Management - Focused on Three Key Areas

How can you manage processes that you can not see?
How do you implement connected, automated manufacturing processes?
Are all of your planning and execution processes seamlessly connected?
SAP Supply Chain Management process

Digital Supply Chain Planning

New trends and technologies are having an impact on supply chains across all industries. New processes, such as omnichannel commerce are forcing companies to rethink their supply chain planning and warehouse management. From design to finished products there are a lot of challenges for supply chain planners, who must keep pace with every change in the supply chain. The SAP Integrated Business Planning solution helps to address the challenges and provide real-time data. It is a cloud-based solution that combines sales and operations planning (S&OP), forecasting and demand, response and supply, demand-driven replenishment, and inventory planning.

Digital Transformation in Manufacturing

Digital Transformation in Manufacturing

The pace of change in manufacturing has never been so high. To meet new demands and remain competitive, you need faster responses, state-of-the-art technology, Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, and connected processes from supply chain planning to manufacturing execution and logistics. At the same time, you need to ensure full traceability and documentation to comply with strict regulations. But overall you need to focus on customer centricity. Customers are communicating their requirements very clearly, and they want  the ability to design products to fit their specific needs.

Without real-time visibility companies can not shift resources intelligently and fast enough to avoid production delays. The SAP Manufacturing Execution solution helps to break the transparency barrier to make mass and individualized products possible and respond to manufacturing requirements. The production processes will be automated and synchronized with the help of AI and Machine Learning based on SAP S/4HANA.

Execution Management for the Digital Age

Companies require effective warehouse management, transportation management, and logistics execution systems. At the same time, they need to manage an extended supply chain where all planning and supply chain execution processes are seamlessly connected. This necessitates the sharing of live information throughout the supply network.

The daily challenge for logistics is to defend the supply chain against disruptive threads and make sure it can deliver orders on time. With the SAP Extended Warehouse Management solution logistics and fulfillment companies have direct access to intelligent technologies such as predictive and prescriptive analytics. This level of intelligence leads to a network for manufacturers, logistics and warehouse managers that connects them in real-time to make sure that everything is on time.
