  • The Challenges of Supply Chain Execution
  • Version 12 SCE background
  • Whats new in SCE for 7.1
  • Summary and QA

Trends Supply Chain Execution (SCE)
  • Increased focus on Supply Chain Management (SCM)
    in general and especially Supply Chain Execution
  • Investments within SCE have proven to have short
    pay off and tangible results
  • Increased focus on logistic processes. Need to
    capture data to measure, control and improve the
    logistic flows
  • The warehouse is more and more a logistics
    factory. Important with stream lined warehouse
  • The traditional manufacturing companies have more
    requirements in logistic due to central warehouse
    concepts and out sourcing
  • Traceability is an important driver especially
    with FMCG. Partly driven by new EU rules

The Challenge of Execution
  • Globalization gt longer supply chains gt increases
  • Market demands gt increasing agility and fast
  • Technology gt new media, new standards, new
  • Environment gt green issues, compliance,
  • Increase efficiency gt productivity gains and
    automation gt manage velocity/chaos

SCE strategy cornerstones
  • Core capability
  • Productivity, automation, ease of use
  • Industry standards
  • Interoperability to strategic extensions
  • Mobile devices, complimentary software
  • Optimization and decision support
  • Greater collaboration
  • Trading partners, 3rd parties, marketplaces, co
    inventories strategies
  • Supply Chain performance and agility
  • Event driven, corrective actions, technology
  • Integrate BI with SC business processes

  • Industry standards
  • EAN 128
  • US Bill of Lading
  • Additional US EDI messages
  • Ease of use
  • New user interface
  • Dispatch flow enhancements
  • Simplified Pack Process
  • Improve productivity and efficiency
  • Packaged based Picking
  • Event based document control
  • Inbound logistics receipt enhancements
  • Freight Cost management
  • Extended cross dock

Dispatch workflow improvements
  • Solution Outline
  • Picking guideline introduced to control which
    dispatch execution sub processes that should be
    performed and in which order
  • New picking method introduced that provides the
    user with system guidance of which action to take
  • Business Value
  • Minimizes the risk for making mistakes
  • Faster and more reliable and efficient processes
  • Lower learning cost for the new warehouse staff
  • Preparation for task management for outbound
    delivery processing

Event Based Document Control
  • Solution Outline
  • Object control to select which delivery documents
    are to produced when (by which events)
  • Delivery documents can be produced automatically
    when various events occur, e.g.
  • Delivery Note when the delivery is complete
  • Address label when Picking Lists are released
  • Loading list when shipment is complete and past
  • Business value
  • Reduction in documentation errors since correct
    documents produced at the correct time
  • More efficient processes (labour saving) due to
    less manual intervention

  • Constraint based pick list creation
  • Optimized pick tasks based on the
    picker/warehouse equipment capacity (Max
    packages, Max lines, Total estimated pick time
  • Flexible package numbering
  • Alias, user defined, Carrier/forwarder unique
  • Package based reporting capabilities
  • Report pack, move to dock or issue by package
  • Alternative unit of measure supported (Pcs,
    Pallets, Cases etc)

Freight Cost Calculation and Simulation
Possible to manually manipulate/override chosen
rate elements
Possible to manually override calculated cost for
simulation purposes and if wanted lock value to
be respected at freight calculation upon delivery
or shipment issue
Inbound logistics improvements
  • Inbound logistics tracking
  • Improved ASN capabilities. Both manually from
    PPS220 and PPS260 as well as API-based
  • ASN re-advising mass-updating affected POs to
    ensure material planning alignment
  • Monitor and manage by Style/ Color
  • Configurable ASN information added intended to be
    used for import tracking (transport ID, vessel
    number, tracking dates etc)
  • Improved PO receiving capabilities
  • ASN based - Shipment, Container, Package or Item
  • Extended cross-dock
  • Enabling a true flow through cross dock process
  • Transferring package information from the inbound
    to the outbound
  • Eliminate unnecessary steps and cost by-passing
    non value-added activities

M3 Warehouse Mobility
Mobile Warehouse Management
Picker Planning - pick teams - picking time -
picking analysis
  • Inbound Logistics
  • - goods receive
  • - inspection
  • - put-away
  • - claims
  • quarantine
  • pre allocations
  • cross-docking
  • returns
  • Outbound Logistics
  • - pick
  • - manual/auto pack
  • - scan pack
  • - dock
  • - dispatch
  • transport planning
  • packaging ledger

In Warehouse Logistics - stock take - move to
location - move container - reclassify/repack -
bulk to pick face
Purchase Order Batch Interface
  • Why have we done this?
  • The value of a PO batch entry is that it shall
    be considered as a building block and enabler to
    various solutions
  • - Ibrix and portal solutions
  • - Purchase Optimization from 3rd party
  • - Freight cost billing solutions
  • - E procurement and supplier portal
  • - Vendor Managed Inventory solutions

Transport Planning Interface (TOI)
  • Why have we done this?
  • Facilitate interfacing with an external
    Transportation Management System (TMS) or route
    optimization system (ROS) for operational
    transportation planning
  • Business Value
  • Enable extension to sophisticated value adding
  • Reduce cost of integration

Transport Execution Interface (TEI)
  • Why have we done this?
  • Communicate information, typically shipment,
    delivery, package and item related info of what
    has actually been shipped (or is in the process
    of being shipped).
  • Variety of stakeholders in the supply chain
  • Forwarder/carrier
  • Customs authority
  • Customer
  • Direct integration from M3 to stakeholder or via
    an external best of breed application
  • Eg. parcel carrier integration, export
    documentation, etc

Using APIs to retrieve the required data from M3
Forwarder B2BMessages
DHL, FedEx,UPS etc
M3 Enterprise Collaborator MEC
Flat FileorXML File
Export docs BoL Manifests etc
