SAP IBP Supply Chain Control Tower: intelligent visibility
Applications that provide insight into individual parts of the supply chain, such as the logistics network or production, are very popular and are used on a daily basis. However, it would be better to look at the entire supply chain than thinking and working in silos. Applications that make this possible have considerable added value for planners and coordinators who need all the relevant information to solve their local problem in a specific area of the supply chain in a targeted manner.
With the SAP IBP Supply Chain Control Tower, you have access to all relevant data and processes of the supply chain. SAP IBP Supply Chain Control Tower is closely integrated with the other modules and functions in SAP IBP and the connected ERP systems in your company network.
Monitoring of the supply chain
With the SAP IBP Supply Chain Control Tower, you improve supply chain performance by monitoring and measuring processes. With knowledge of the overall situation, you can react immediately and effectively if necessary. Monitoring is based on defined key performance indicators (KPIs) and self-configurable alerts that indicate problems in the supply chain in real time. You gain insight into the current performance of your supply chain and can therefore observe important indicators and handle exceptions automatically with partly machine learning based procedures. Supply chain analysts can use the Intelligent Visibility functionality to visualize relationships between sites and identify where discrepancies are affecting supply chain performance. By selectively navigating to other areas of SAP Integrated Business Planning or SAP S/4HANA, proactive measures can be taken to avoid imminent problems.
