Planning is at the core of most organisations, and has a direct impact on operational costs, revenue, and customer service levels. Every day, many decisions are made about how to utilise scarce resources on a strategic, tactical, and operational level. But today’s planning decisions are often sub-optimal. They may not be based on the right information and processes, or may be executed by non-professional planners who have to work with unsuitable IT. As a result, too often planning is a case of trying to keep up with reality, instead of being a key process with a direct impact on the CEO’s dashboard, as it should be.
Capgemini’s Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) proposition helps you make the best use of people, process, technology, and information in order to increase service levels and at the same time reduce operational cost.
