JDA Enterprise Planning for Omnichannel Intelligence


JDA Enterprise Planning / JDA Arthur Planning allows companies to easily tie enterprise-wide strategic plans to the execution of shared goals. JDA Enterprise Planning helps produce the most accurate, insightful, coordinated plans possible, while eliminating duplicate data sources. Without a clearly defined strategic direction across the supply chain, businesses may be missing opportunities, operating inefficiently and even working at cross purposes, with misaligned objectives. As economies expand and borders blur, it has become critical to optimize all of the strategic, merchandise, assortment, operational and resource planning activities across your supply and demand chain.

Challenge addressed: Allowing Planners to Remain in Their Plans During Submits/Approvals

The basic Enterprise Planning Stand-Alone toolkit requires top down and bottom up planners to be out of their plans when approving data to TDPP or BUPP. This tool allows the top down or bottom up planners to remain in their plans while the other planner submits/approvals and they can then load into their plans the other version submitted/approved when they want to see it reflected in their plan. It is similar to how Enterprise Planning EKB works for these versions.
