Putting the “finite”
into capacity planning
Netstock Predictor IBP incorporates an FCP (Finite Capacity Planning) solver to truly optimize production plans in monthly, weekly, or even daily time periods. If so, then we just need to update these two naming conventions. The optional FCP module will suggest strategic inventories when appropriate, and automatically spread material requirements across alternative resources or vendors, optimizing cost and throughput, and preparing your business for seasonal peaks, planned outages, or rapid growth.
Real-time inventory visibility
View inventory, backlogs, and planned supply at any level of aggregation, and in any unit of measure, providing all stakeholders with a comprehensive and timely view of the information they need.
Scenario planning & business analysis to accelerate business responsiveness
Create and compare multiple demand-supply scenarios and easily share them with stakeholders. Netstock Predictor IBP provides an efficient platform and makes it easier to go from annual or bi-annual planning to a more responsive S&OP cadence.
