Redwood Shores, Calif. – November 16, 2009
To improve companies’ ability to quickly adapt to unplanned supply chain events, Oracle today announced the availability of Oracle® Rapid Planning.
With Oracle Rapid Planning, customers will benefit from real-time, event driven planning and simulation that delivers quick, predictive and actionable intelligence, enabling planners to react quickly to changes.
Complementary to the existing suite of Oracle Value Chain Planning applications, Oracle Rapid Planning features out-of-the-box integration with the Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. It also supports integration with ERP systems such as SAP or other legacy systems. This enables customers to leverage their existing IT investments, lower installation costs and maximize value.
Oracle Rapid Planning Drives Real-Time, Profitable Supply Chain Decisions
Companies must react quickly to events such as a sudden increase in demand, an urgent engineering change, an unexpected production shortfall or a supplier quality issue. Oracle Rapid Planning enables customers to benefit from:
Improved Planning Speed and Flexibility
Fast, event-driven, simultaneous material and capacity planning enables quick decision-making.
Rapid incremental simulation and embedded analytics enables user-driven “what-if” scenario analysis and plan performance evaluation and comparison.
Mass edit and manipulation of items, bills, routings, resources, capacity, supply and demand data promotes quick, user-driven “what if” capabilities, without requiring changing data in the ERP system.
Increased Planner Productivity
Next generation productivity enhancing spreadsheet style user interface supports configurable workspaces, filters and saved queries, and simultaneous analysis of exceptions, supply chain pegging, performance indicators and material and resource requirements.
Comprehensive Modeling Capabilities
Comprehensive configurable exception management increases planners’ productivity and response by focusing on the most important problem first.
Comprehensive supply chain constraint modeling and decision automation with support for alternates (resources, process, facilities, ship methods, components), substitution, lead times, order modifiers, and priority-based ranking enables improved plan quality.
Standards-based technology enables scalability and lower cost deployment.
