Manufacturing Supply Network Planning

Better customer service and lower inventories through integrated planning

Manufacturing network planning software from SAP determines and sources production requirements across a network of sites to meet demand with minimum lead times. It lets you adjust production and procurement plans to adapt to demand and supply changes.
