Oracle has announced the Oracle Application Integration Architecture (AIA) Process Integration Pack for Oracle's Value Chain Planning applications to Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
Oracle AIA enables organizations to integrate end-to-end business processes across a range of custom, Oracle or third-party applications. With this integration, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers are able to gain capabilities not available in their current solution to enable best practices in trade management, demand signal management, risk management, supply and distribution planning, demand management, advanced forecasting, sales and operations planning, inventory postponement, collaborative planning and corporate-wide planning performance management.
"Oracle Value Chain Planning offers a complete, integrated and modular solution that spans operational to strategic planning across all time horizons of the planning cycle," states Lenley Hensarling, Oracle group vice president and general manager, Oracle's JD Edwards and Applications Unlimited. "The Oracle AIA-based integration enables our customers to better sense demand, shape for profitability and quickly respond to supply chain events. They can now achieve best-in-class processes such as sales and operations planning, supply chain risk management and integrated supply planning and scheduling, all supported through comprehensive performance management and monitoring."
Oracle will continue to support the existing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Supply Chain Planning applications, protecting customer investment while enabling a gradual adoption of the modules from Oracle's Value Chain Planning applications.
Integration between JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle's Value Chain Planning applications delivers key supply chain capabilities, according to Oracle. Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning provides comprehensive unconstrained and constraint-based manufacturing, distribution and supply chain planning to synchronize operations across the entire supply chain; Oracle's Demantra enables leading demand management, continuous sales and operations planning, and end-to-end trade management processes for improved demand visibility, forecast accuracy, and profitability; and Oracle Advanced Planning Command Center bridges the gap between corporate performance management and planning analytics by providing extensive scenario management for supply chain analysis, risk management, and sales and operations planning, combined with configurable corrective action alerts.
In additional capabilities enabled by the integration, Oracle Inventory Optimization allows minimization of inventory investment while improving service levels and considering cost, budgets and customer commitments in a multi-echelon supply chain; Oracle Strategic Network Optimization enables network design and sourcing optimization decisions and fast S&OP scenario analysis for planned and unplanned supply chain events; and Oracle Production Scheduling helps improves shop floor throughput by optimizing schedules around floating bottlenecks.
