Planning has become more critical than ever. The days of the static and linear supply chain are gone and will be replaced by a dynamic and multi-directional scenario. Consumer demand is changing faster and faster, consumers are better informed, regulations are becoming more stringent, and then there is economic globalization. Simultaneously, the constraints are growing; there is insufficient insight into the entire chain, and operational risks increase. With transforming market demands, speed is the need of the hour. With Anaplan as our partner, Polestar Solutions takes a holistic approach to supply chain management, provides real-time visibility across the network, creating the capability to drive and sense demand, and facilitates a dynamic and collaborative process.

Balancing demand with supply is a major part of supply chain planning. Our Supply Planning solution will help you sense and drive demand, improve forecasts, build connections and break down information barriers, enhancing demand (forecast/sales) across production and/or contract manufacturers.
Allows you to drive and sense demand instead of being reactive to the market dynamics. Have the confidence to move plans to meet sudden spikes in demand and make decisions at the speed of the market. Anaplan’s cloud-based demand planning platform will give you a granular view of all relevant external and internal factors so you can steer clear of out-of-stock situations or excess inventory and wasted capital.
Our Production Planning solutions provide fast and powerful order promising capabilities to accurately develop a feasible plan for supply. Existing orders and inventory is netted with demand to generate production and purchase recommendations. Supply issues are surfaced immediately for planners to review and address.
Our Inventory Planning solution provides a robust set of capabilities for planning inventory across the network. The movement of inventory between geographies is easily managed by transfers while taking care of the lead times. Inventory can be triggered for expiry based on receipt dates or production, and monetised for liability.
Managing capacities for resources, especially critical assets, is an integral part of production planning. Our Capacity Planning capabilities include unconstrained and constrained planning modes, variable capacity limits, and planning calendars to efficiently leverage resources.
Our Material Planning abilities net the production Bill of Materials requirements, for all levels, against on-hand inventory or in-coming supply. Using its fast planning algorithms, the shortage of any materials is quickly and easily determined. Based on the shortages, the application provides purchase recommendations to be received on the required date to prevent order lateness.
The delivered Anaplan Solution helps the decision-makers to run multiple scenarios and opt for what’s best for the business. Tasks like fluctuations across prices, customer mix, workers compensation, fuel costs, etc could be done by changing the values & drivers. All of it can be done within a single platform.READ MORE
