Infor, a leader in the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) field, recently announced a new version of Infor Advanced Planning 11, a configurable constraint-based supply chain planning solution to optimize supply chains.
This latest update to their ERP suite gives enterprise users access to a highly configurable business software solution that adheres and adapts to the unique requirements of the clients supply chain. This allows for faster and more accurate business decisions, which in turn leads to better efficiency and increased revenue for everyone. The changes to Infor Advanced Planning include large investments in scale and performance, which helps users of the software to predict, plan, and react to new or rising issues before they impact the flow of the supply chain.
ERP and Supply Chain Optimization
Advanced Planning 11 from Infor offers customers an optimized plan that takes into the costs and constraints associated with their supply chain across the board, from sourcing and inventory to manufacturing and labor. By focusing on these key areas, Advanced Planning 11 can help to lower the supply chain costs while simultaneously meeting organizational and customer needs.
Featured enhancements to Infor Advanced Planning include a Supply Chain Optimization model, which provides built-in flexibility enabling users to deploy the model in various situations. This template will also help reduce implementation times and lower the total cost of ownership. Additional improvements have been added to boost the performance and scale of the application. This is achieved by using a new version of the optimization engine CPLEX 12.6, and by converting the application to run exclusively in 64bit, which provides the needed scale to solve larger supply chain problems. In addition, Advanced Planning 11 boasts new conditional formatting that emphasizes important values and removes the noise for the planners, resulting in improved, more informed decisions.
“For this Advanced Planning release, Infor really honed in on improving the scale and overall performance of the product to provide customers with increased flexibility and visibility across the entire supply chain,” said John Bermudez, vice president, Product Management, Infor. “Advanced Planning 11 allows organizations to tackle bigger problems with more efficiency and confidence, resulting in bigger and faster decision-making.”
