IBP is part of the SC Navigator suite. It supports every step in your IBP (or S&OP) process with features that are unique in the market, such as integrating products still in the ideation phase. You can use it to:
Create vulnerabilities and opportunities for both demand and supply, and use these to create multiple demand and supply scenarios for evaluation
Visualize the performance of previous plans and understand the gap to strategy of the current plan
In IBP, there are three key phases: Demand Plan, Demand Review, and Supply Review.
In the Demand Plan phase, each member in the sales team can update the forecast of products specific to customers at different locations.
In the Demand Review phase, Demand Managers can adjust the amount of demand on the aggregated product family level.
In the Supply Review phase, Supply Managers are involved to provide capacity/supply input, and create production plans that balance demand and supply. Business Scenarios are created.
