IDC Perspective : The Use of Advanced Analytics in Supply Chain Planning and Emerging Use Cases

This report discusses how TCS digital analytics tool has helped the manufacturer leverage interactive visualization combined with real-time demand signals and an optimization engine to transform supplier capacity management.

 Excerpt from the report –

“The tools that TCS provided to achieve this transformation included a "network capacity visualization" tool that enabled comparisons of demand across various programs with the committed supplier capacity to identify gaps, a "supplier capacity scenario analyzer" tool to provide the what-if capability for both internal production and supplier collaboration and identify the optimal approach to minimize the capacity gaps to maintain production, and a "margin optimizer" tool to tap the social buzz on both products and features in order to better predict sales for new product features/options and optimize against known capacity constraints.”
