COVID-19: Supply chain scenario planning-as-a-service with SAP
Together with SAP we’ve built a pragmatic COVID-19 response leveraging SAP Integrated Business Planning
COVID-19 is a health and humanitarian crisis that presents a serious threat to people across the planet. Leaders worldwide are seeking to urgently act to keep ahead of this rapidly changing global pandemic, and assess the ensuing impact on their people, their customers, and their organizations.
For the supply chain function, the virtual lifeline to humanity, it’s critical to maintain operations during these events. Companies must develop COVID-19 response and take swift actions to stabilize and build a stronger and more resilient supply chain.
To help maintain supply chain resilience in uncertain times, Accenture and SAP have developed Scenario Planning-as-a-Service that uses SAP Integrated Business Planning (IBP) and Accenture services.
We will set up SAP IBP with your data to:
Scenario planning will help to evaluate the supply chain impact, supply options and financial implications.
Determine demand shifts based on product behavior and supply network capability. Understand financial impact.
Understand production rate changes on process manufacturing (e.g. shifts). Understand financial impact.
Look to inventory positioning for stocking and non-stocking nodes within the network. Understand service levels impact.
Evaluate inventory and supply balancing options with global and local networks.
Put Accenture and SAP to work. We’re helping companies act fast and use the power of supply chain scenario planning.
If you are using SAP IBP, we can provide a working model in SAP IBP in 2-4 weeks (depending on company size and complexity, and number of decision scenarios).
If you are using SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer (APO) or if you are not an SAP customer, we can provide a working model in SAP IBP in 4-6 weeks (depending on company size and complexity, and number of decision scenarios).
The COVID-19 pandemic requires businesses to protect their people and support their customers, partners and communities.
