ERP: Origins, Developments, and Trends


ERP first developed as a form of inventory control and later grew to link disparate bodies of information together from across the enterprise. Now, ERP enhancements include SCM, CRM, and e-commerce features, just to name a few. However, where is this technology going? What does it mean now?

limitations scm  However, because of the limitations of computers at the time, the software could handle only limited variables. There was no way to see how a late part, for example, would impact overall production. The general assumption was that delays in the system would mean the customer would receive the product late. Also, backward scheduling , where the start date was calculated backwards from the desired completion date, had to be employed to minimize inventory and still meet the customer's delivery date.

Using Demand to Modulate Consumer Packaged Goods Supply Networks


Traditionally, the consumer packaged goods supply has been driven to market mostly by upstream manufacturers. But progressive companies are realizing the enduring value of being driven by the market, and they are starting to use demand as a guiding light.

limitations scm  due to the inherent limitations of the existing supply chains. Internal silos and closed-loop activity Instead of taking a holistic view of the supply chain, most companies are more concerned about local metrics and local departments; they lack of broader participation and commitment during critical phases such as forecasting and sales and operations planning. The mind-set is still of firefighting and knee-jerk reactions. Typical examples include manufacturing pushing for volume to keep their metrics of Read More

The Essential Supply Chain


Supply Chain Management (SCM) once viewed as a way to obtain a competitive advantage, is now perceived as a logical and necessary extension of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The reasons: First, traditional ERP systems lack the advanced planning tools necessary for companies to respond to an increasingly competitive business environment. Second, advances in computing power and data transmission enable disparate entities to communicate efficiently and at a low cost. Finally, vendors have observed the complementary nature of SCM and ERP and are engaged in consolidation of their product suites.

limitations scm  chain management addresses these limitations more effectively and at (usually) lower cost than ERP. Where ERP systems focused on transactions, SCM was geared towards analysis and planning. A planning tool, in its nature, is expected to be flexible. Also, because the SCM market is newer than ERP, smaller SCM vendors have had the benefit of hindsight and have targeted their applications at the gaps in ERP systems. In addition, the advanced techniques developed for supply chain applications allow Read More

Managing Vendor Code Customizations with AccuRev Stream-based SCM


Customizing third-party “vendor” source code is becoming increasingly common. But managing the incorporation of vendor application releases alongside customizations requires an additional layer of software configuration management (SCM) to integrate subsequent vendor releases. Traditional branch-based SCM tools require an unnecessarily complex branch-and-merge process. However, there is a more intuitive and efficient parallel development model for managing customizations to vendor code.
