Orchestrating Demand-Driven Supply Chains
Superior Supply Chain Performance
Do you need to better link your supply chain planning methodology to business strategy? Our demand-driven solution puts S&OP in the driver’s seat by setting planning parameters that resolve constraints first, and then flexibly executing production within those ground rules.
And that eliminates excess inventories and time wasted on constant replanning.
Demand Driven Planning
O8‘s enterprise-class cloud-based Demand Driven Planning suite O8 DDMRPII™ is used at hundreds of locations around the globe. O8 connects market strategies, demand patterns and service profiles to supply chain policies and operations, providing well-conditioned supply chains that result in dramatic inventory and service level improvements.
Accredited by the Demand Driven Institute, our cloud-based solutions can be implemented in weeks and easily handle high variability and volatility. Planners work with the system, not around it, eliminating excessive manual re-planning.
O8’s cloud-based solution is designed to plan independently of MRP and compliment ERP systems such as SAP and Oracle. And since the solution can be implemented in weeks, results are realized very quickly. Contact us today to learn more.
O8 Supply Manager
O8 Supply Manager rescues supply chains from outdated MRP, and a forecast-driven bullwhip effect, by supporting Demand Driven MRP processes that directly connect market and business strategies to supply chain rules, policies and operations. Our cloud-based solution accommodates a diverse range of items, production rhythms, geographies and markets. O8 Supply Manager leverages knowledge from Theory of Constraints (TOC), traditional MRP & DRP, Six Sigma, Lean and Flow and has been certified as fully compliant by the Demand Driven Institute. O8 even provides supplier portals for better synchronization with suppliers.
O8 Supply Chain Conditioning
O8 Supply Chain Conditioning helps planners condition supply chains by analyzing demand profiles and setting inventory targets that lead to more realistic DD S&OP. Our unique ability to constantly condition supply chains by setting planning parameters that resolve constraints first, and then execute production within those ground rules, creates a more realistic, execution-ready plans that translate to more efficient operations. In addition, O8 segments product ranges by demand profiles — using proven demand based statistical rules — greatly improving supply chain planning effectiveness.
O8 Demand Driven S&OP
O8 Demand Driven S&OP delivers more realistic results. Reaching beyond traditional supply and demand planning to consider daily operating constraints including production, materials and shipping. This cloud-based solution increases S&OP success by breaking the dependency on inaccurate forecasts and re-connecting inventory with operating capability. Fully compatible with Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma initiatives, our integrated business planning approach uses demand pull principles to replenish inventory levels while linking inventory policies to product strategy and service goals.
O8 Demand Manager
O8’s cloud-based Demand Manager easily handles high variability and volatility. O8 Demand Manager enables the ability to create, save and manage a forecast that honors both pull (replenishment) and push (promotional or seasonal) demand. The solution offers complete support to Demand Driven Planning processes including events, promotions, product life cycle planning, capacity planning and multi-tier planning using a highly intuitive, graphical user interface. Additionally, this cloud-based solution also supports vendor collaboration using VMI.
O8 Demand Driven Supply Planning
O8 Demand Driven Supply Planning directly connects market strategies, demand patterns and service profiles to supply chain policies and operations. Our cloud-based solution uses best practice inventory management techniques that segment the planning process according to an item’s demand profile.
O8 Demand Driven Operations Manager
O8 Demand Driven Operations Manager understands the volume impacts on the supply chain, so orders are released in line with real operating constraints. Our cloud-based approach allows you to shorten the window of firm orders in factory and supplier schedules, and dramatically reduce MRP-driven order instability. O8 Operations Manager considers production capacities and change overs, order grouping and production wheel sequencing, supplier capacities and even builds full loads for shipments.
The Best of All Worlds
Our fresh approach leverages knowledge from Theory of Constraints (TOC), traditional MRP & DRP, Six Sigma, Lean and Flow to accommodate a diverse range of items, production rhythms, geographies and markets. Delivered at a fraction of the cost of traditional supply chain software, our Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is a robust, yet easy to use offering that:
Honors both pull (replenishment) and push (promotional or seasonal) demand
Uses demand-driven supply planning and inventory management techniques that segment the planning process according to an item’s demand profile
Includes supply chain conditioning to set up rules and policies and refine monthly
Speeds the planning cycle, including supply chain simulation and what-if analysis that helps eliminate manual intervention
Offers complete support to demand-driven inventory planning processes including events, life cycle planning, capacity planning and multi-tier planning
Provides enterprise-class capabilities that support multi-lingual and multi-cultural global implementations.
*Normally, the big print giveth and the small print taketh away. In the case of O8, these results are typical. Good job looking at the fine print, tho.
