ECR supply side

Optimising ECR supply side - fully automated materials planning

One of the major elements of the ECR process is the incorporation of a fully automated materials planning system that uses scientific methods to automate and optimise stock replenishment planning from a retail perspective. Or from the manufacturer’s perspective, enabling product stocks and sales figures to be monitored and providing automatic replenishment. The benefits of incorporating fully automated materials planning are cost-optimised stock, reduction of out-of-stock situations and a drop in surplus stock in branches and distribution centres.

The following factors are responsible for cost savings, giving your company a competitive edge:

  • Avoiding out-of-stock situations
  • Reducing warehouse and handling costs
  • Exploiting supplier conditions and discounts
  • Putting logistic restrictions in place to reduce logistics costs
  • Reducing the amount of handling work performed by staff
  • Reacting quickly to changes in sales figures
  • Optimising the logistics chain
  • Reducing and optimising stock
  • Improving planning and monitoring for new products and sales promotions
  • Rapidly withdrawing products that are performing badly from the market

The solution developed by ORBIS is needed to integrate the fully automated materials planning into existing SAP R/3 software.
