Are you turning a blind eye to Demand Spikes?

Are you simply reacting and passing your Demand Spikes over to your partner? Implement Single Use Replenishment (SUR®), a patent-pending SAP® bolt-on to recognize and plan these spikes…Today!

Unusual variability as a result of a demand spike is very common in today’s supply chain. MRP systems typically do nothing but pass them over to the partners at various nodes of the supply chain. These spikes often exceed the supply capacity of one or more partners. This results in rampant shortages across the supply chain.

Pull system, on the other hand, either ignores the existence of such a spike or increases the buffer levels significantly to service the spike. In some cases, such spikes are handled manually outside the system. Invariably, the performance of the supply chain suffers.

We at Lean Axis, have developed a patent-pending solution that applies sophisticated customizable algorithms to identify unusual spikes in variability in a supply chain. It then creates one-time smoothened push replenishments (Single Use Replenishment) to ensure a 100% service level. Smoothening ensures that spikes are attenuated and not transmitted to the Components and suppliers. This approach prevents the bullwhip effect in the supply chain.

Single Use Replenishment solution along with our Lean Planning solution offers our customers the best of both, the push and pull worlds.
