Implementation of SAP Integrated Business Planning solution to harmonize planning processes and IT tools
Infosys implemented SAP IBP to enable harmonized sales and operations planning (S&OP). The implementation and solution architecture focused on a scalable data model and global process templates for demand review, supply review, and inventory optimization.
As part of the solution, Infosys implemented:
Enhanced profitability through distribution and product mix optimization by prioritizing profitable products and customers in case of constraints
Increased visibility through annual budget planning solution. This helped prepare the business for next 2-3 years and plan the supply chain in advance
Improved plant efficiency through supply optimizer that performed finite planning and trade offs
Reduced inventory through optimized safety stock levels across supply chain leading to reduced working capital needs
Harmonized S&OP processes across business lines using a global IBP template
Improved productivity of demand/supply planners by automating statistical forecasting and supply planning results
