Which you might be wondering Why is supply chain planning ( the Supply Planning, ) ? The purpose of supply chain planning is to balance the demand and supply within the companies involved in procurement and production planning. By the results of the planning That supply chain will It is used as information in the preparation of proposals for purchase and production in order to respond to customers’ needs in a timely manner. Including managing the amount of products to meet the needs of customers. In this EP. We focus on the procurement.
This picture is the Demand Planning and Order-to-Cash (Sell-from-Stock) process in Netizen Arabica , in which we focus on the purple process, which is The supply chain planning ( the Supply Planning,).
As for the challenges for supply chain planners, the first is to create the most reliable sourcing plan in order to stabilize operations and avoid disruptions. Including creating safeguards for procurement of inventory to avoid surplus inventories
Another challenge is There are many products. Which most organizations tend to focus on the important products first That means that there must be a good supply chain planning. To handle this different exception
The Netizen Arabica standard in the Supply Planning function will handle all these challenges. By supporting demand and supply lists showing the latest situation on demand, supply and inventory data As well as having automatic planning functions To help planners avoid wasting time on unimportant products
In addition, planners can choose processes that help reduce complexity. Which the first process is Demand driven process (Demand-Driven), which the system considers all types of demand data with the required net quantity calculation and next is the capacity planning process (Consumption-Based) which we will present in the next EP.
Another ability is Planners can use the Safety Buffer system, a supplier assistance system, to display information. Lead times and safety stock data
The planner can follow the steps to the right in the picture. To anticipate customer demand for products to be released, including input settings to begin the planning preparation phase In the next step is The implementation of raw material planning, also known as Material Requirement Planning (MRP)
Which the operation will be performed automatically according to the scheduled time Or can begin operations by working together with the production data processing at any time Which is a result of creating proposals for production and purchase
In addition, the planner can check the data in the system. Whether checking exceptions Planning or checking of important product information in supply and demand lists, etc.

The demand data is considered, for example from sales orders. Demand forecasting information, inventory transfer order information And the demand information that is generated in the production The supply side information is available inventory data. And the company’s procurement information
The first step is to calculate the net demand that matches the existing demand and supply in order to determine the demand that is not covered.
The second step is to calculate the required Lot Size when complying with the net requirements, which will correlate with the procurement and sourcing information available in Proposal, Purchasing and Production or Stock Transfer.
Third step Of supply chain planning is delivering to the implementation of the proposal in the system, which will be converted into a request document And will be sent to the responsible person of the purchasing department or the production department
