IBP Response & Supply

SAP IBP Response & Supply

SAP IBP Response & Supply allows quick adaptation to changes in demand, considering the full supply chain model. It helps simulating plans for production, for distribution, and for procurement, to meet customer needs. Both infinite and finite capacity mode are available, like advanced planning system. With What-If analysis, Integrated Business Planning for Response and Supply provides visibility versus potential scenarios.

 As APO SNP the data repository is organized according to supply dimensions (product, location, resource, sourcing…) and key figures reflecting quantities and values. This module also allows you planning using an Optimization engine that considers many constraints and cost.

SAP IBP Supply and IBP Response allow generation of mid-term and short-term supply plan based on prioritized and categorized demand.
