Extensions for SAP and Oracle SCM Solution
Bristlecone offers a portfolio of solution extensions to enhance SAP and Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) solutions. Our extensions maximize investment in on-premise, cloud and hybrid SCM modules across industries:
Streamlines reporting and analysis of planning data in the SAP Advanced Planning & Optimization (APO) platform. Our self-service tool sources real-time planning data from the SAP APO live cache and provides rich visualization.
Allocation Management Cockpit
Ensures flexibility in product allocation. The SAP-certified extension offers a user-friendly interface and advanced search functionality. It is ~12 times faster than standard methods to update and manage product allocation.
ATP Confirmation Center
Creates a log of SAP Available-to-Promise (ATP) checks and generates a report for querying the log. Our pre-configured extension stores sales order confirmation and other information at the time of order entry. It facilitates sales order processing and analysis of ATP check options.
Demand Planning Change Log
Enables real-time recording of demand planning data in SAP APO. It captures changes in planning data, including level of hierarchy, timestamp of change, user profile, and quantity.
CTM Data Tool Kit
Saves time and effort in troubleshooting the APO Capable-to-Match (CTM) engine through an advanced ‘where-used’ relationship-based master data query capability. It extracts large sets of data for auditing prior to running on the APO CTM engine, thereby allowing users to review multi-level planning master data before the planning run. The extension helps users analyze CTM log data and understand how each product demand was or was not fulfilled by the CTM engine.
RBA Sub Item Suppression
Automates the creation of sub-items during rules-based ATP checking, thereby eliminating errors in subsequent ATP checks. Our pre-configured development object enables modifications to the main item, without creating sub-items in the sales order. The code can be implemented on SAP R/3 and ERP Central Component (ECC), and enables backorder processing in SAP APO.
Planning Area Data Extraction
Extracts large volumes of data from SAP Demand Planning (DP) and Supply Network Planning (SNP) systems in real time, without waiting for scheduled extraction by SAP Business Warehouse. Data is extracted from live cache in the planning area or a specific planning book for execution of macros prior to extraction. The simplified data output can be exported to Microsoft Excel worksheets. Our extraction tool performs 10-15 times faster than tools for downloading data from the SNP interactive planning book.
Offers store and plant-level replenishment status based on the delivery matrix in Oracle Demantra. The solution extension considers minimum order, maximum order, shelf size, backlog, and target inventory levels to optimize inventory replenishment.
Supports store-related modules of Oracle Demantra by providing inventory replenishment plans at each level of the distribution network based on factors that influence sales, including new store opening, store closure and store categorization.
Open to Buy calculator
Matches supply with demand in the planning stage for multi-level monitoring and management of inventory and financial data in Oracle Demantra.
Configure to Order scenarios for Oracle Demantra
Facilitates prompt assembling / configuring of products with multiple sub-components and customized specification in sales orders. The solution calculates dependent demand for various components based on the sales history of finished products.
