Value Chain Planning in The Cloud

The Oracle Manufacturing Cloud manages operations via a single source of database information to effectively manage your Demand Management, S&OP process and Supply Chain Planning, so you can focus on your business

Complete ERP

With Oracle you get a real-time solution that makes information available to organizations and users who need it, when they need it. The Oracle Manufacturing Cloud enables you to effectively manage your financial, operational, and IT strategies within one unified system—beyond ERP and MES. A single source of truth that connects your Shop floor to your Top floor, giving you end-to-end supply chain and production visibility and control with real-time access to data across your entire manufacturing enterprise.

Collaborative Planning

Sales & operations planning (S&OP) isn’t just for large manufacturing enterprises. No matter how large or small your operations may be, you need a formal cross-functional integrated process for enterprise-wide (multi-facility) demand and supply planning. The Oracle Manufacturing Cloud enables you to:
Combine strategic input from multiple teams including sales, marketing, engineering, operations, and finance in a formal sales and operations process.
Plan across multiple products, production lines, manufacturing, and distribution facilities for a holistic enterprise-wide plan—with user-defined planning requency and planning horizon.
Develop a cross-functional, consensus-based plan leading to an actionable master production schedule (MPS).

Demand Management and Planning

Integrated ERP system that gives you insight into the current state of production and future commitments so you can:
Match supply and demand plans with financial considerations with a multi-criteria workflow-driven hierarchical planning process. Balance supply and demand across potential trade promotions, new product introductions, mergers and acquisitions, production capacity changes, updated distribution channels, and other strategic business levers. Evaluate the impact of various what-if scenarios and different demand patterns, without affecting live data. Compare actual versus projected numbers for timely and responsive operations management and re-planning.

Capacity Planning

The first step in efficiently managing your production is to understand requirements for key resources including labor, machinery, tooling, warehouse space, suppliers’ capabilities, and even money. Oracle Value Chain planning helps you:
Conduct true capacity calculations—across all facilities—to include multiple shifts, number of resources, number of production lines, production calendar, and machine performance. Perform level loading for quarters and months to minimize variability in work center utilization. Build supply plans for quantity on hand, safety stock, sales forecast, and open and dependent orders, or override safety stock and lead time settings. Reschedule order quantities and due dates to remove over-capacity periods or adjust over-capacity periods with sub-contracting orders.

Advanced Planning and Scheduling

Eliminate spreadsheets to manage your detailed production plans. You need an automated planning system that looks at the entire production process—including quantities, inventory levels, and resources requirements. Execute forecasting and production planning on a user-defined schedule, integrated with manufacturing operations management (MOM) and manufacturing execution system (MES).Push MPS to drive purchasing and production to stay updated on adjustments to production performance.Determine planning and safety lead times as well as get recommendations for lead-time improvements.Calculate key metrics for order performance including days late, percent on time, average order replenishment time, and more.
