Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/22/2015 -- "The Case for Cloud-based Supply Chain Management Today" was authored by leading industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler. Cutler asserts high-value supply chain improvements enabled by cloud-based SCE solutions can be tightly integrated with MRP and ERP systems and then rapidly deployed across extended enterprise value chains. This leverages investments made in MRP and ERP systems, thereby extending their useful life.
Reduced labor costs through the automation and streamlining of manual MRP and ERP also improve supply chain execution through the application of workflow, business rules, and alerting to materials management processes.
Higher up-time and reduced reliance on IT for support through the use of MRP/ERP and SCE 'Integration Panel' alert business users and provide self-help tools to correct problems when interface points are in a pending or fail status, creating value-added benefits and supply chain improvements.
Cloud-based SCE moving to Proactive Materials Management
SCE solutions enable the rapid and systematic transition from reactive to proactive materials management practices through the application of advanced decision support tools. Reduction in stock-outs occurs through the use of predictive 'Inventory Health' dashboards which constantly monitor inventory status and automatically alerts buyers when items are at risk of stocking-out.
