The B2Wise Application
B2Wise is a fully DDMRP compliant Supply Chain Planning application that allows you sense changing customer demand, then to adapt planning and production while pulling inventory from work centres and suppliers – all in real time.
High Level Application Design
The B2Wise blueprint was developed with planners in a live planning environment. Hence, apart from all the DDMRP functionality required to run a distribution and manufacturing setup, B2Wise includes a number of super-cool planning features designed to make a planner’s task easier.
B2Wise is the modern answer to the complexity of the modern manufacturer and distributor.
The application is built on the principles than an optimally performing supply chain needs to be visible, agile, and responsive and open to change.
B2Wise provides a flexible interface to allow users to map their data files from any source.
Once data files are mapped, data transfers can be manually executed through the interface or automated using the built-in FTP or HTTPS data transfer application
In addition to all the DDMRP functionalities, B2Wise also includes:
- Supply and demand planning portals to enable easy communication with suppliers and customers.
- Advanced forecasting and demand management functionalities, ideal for creating blended forecasts needed to handle seasonality.
DEMAND MANAGEMENT AND FORECASTING MODULE
The B2Wise application has a fully integrated Demand Management and Forecasting module. This module generates a line item forecast using tournament techniques, calculates forecast errors over the decoupled lead time horizon, and monitors forecast stability, and alerts users to sharp changes in future demand.
This forecast can be used as an alternative adjustment factor to augment the DDMRP ADU calculation.
