Maximizing the ROI in Supply Chain Planning - Insights from Quantitative Studies

RESEARCH OVERVIEW:

  • Planning Software Study:
    • Objective:  To understand how quickly companies can implement demand and supply planning software from different vendors and how this speed impacts ROI and satisfaction.
    • Highlight: Best-of-Breed solutions (including Logility and JDA) are quicker to implement with fewer issues on budget overruns. As a result, the ROI for stand alone Best-of-Breed solutions is higher.
    • Survey Details: The research for this report was conducted from February 11 – June 10, 2014. It is based on an online survey among 87 Manufacturers, Retailers, Distributors and Third Party Logistics Providers who have demand and/or supply planning software and know the number of planning instances deployed.

     

  • Network Design Technology Study:
    • Objective:  To understand current usage of supply chain network modeling and design technology.
    • Highlight: Network design tools have been deployed the most frequently to evaluate physical flows like distribution  facility footprint, but increasingly the products are being used to analyze logical flows in cost-to-serve, go-to-market strategies and flow-path analysis.
    • Survey Details: The research for this report was conducted from May 7 – June 11, 2014. It is based on an online survey among 37 Manufacturers, Retailers, Distributors and Third-Party Logistics Providers who use supply chain network modeling and design technology.
