Talk at TDWI World Conference to Outline Supply Chain Performance Management

(Orlando, FL - Oct. 29, 2004) - In most large organizations, the financial and supply chain planning processes are two separate and distinct processes.  This lack of integration causes significant discrepancies in budget reconciliation, financial planning, enterprise cash-flow management and other critical areas of the business.  Innovated by ADI Strategies, Supply Chain Performance Management (SCPM) is a new solution that mitigates these incongruities, while providing tangible value through integration of two formerly disparate, yet inextricably linked enterprise processes. 

On Sunday, Oct. 31, 2004, ADI principal consultant Bill Rubin will give a presentation at the TDWI World Conference in Orlando , FL , outlining the fundamentals of SCPM, including a brief explanation of Supply Chain Analytics (SCA), followed by an in-depth discussion of Supply Chain Financial Management (SCFM).  SCA is a service offering that helps manufacturing companies identify which orders won't get filled in time and why.  SCFM bridges supply chain solutions with financial planning applications via business intelligence tools in order to provide companies with one trusted source for both departments.  In each instance, a multidimensional database serves as a business intelligence (BI) integration layer, thus connecting BI with a constraint-based supply chain solution.


"Constraint-based systems are highly valuable because they provide an extremely accurate, ground-level view of enterprise assets," notes Rubin.  "By integrating such systems with BI applications, a business can gain clear visibility into what's happening within the organization.  The result is a level of agility in both decision-making and front-line execution that simply wasn't possible prior to the availability of this solution."


The TDWI night class, scheduled from 5:30 - 6:45 pm will present a financial planning solution developed using Hyperion Planning and driven by the major components found in standard supply chain planning applications, including forecasted customer demand, constrained supply, and resource capacity. Attendees will learn the business value that can be derived through the close integration of these two vital planning processes.
