Traditionally, the client’s manufacturing has been predominantly a “make to order” business. Recently, with consumer demands of quicker lead-times and the advent of “mattress in a box” (MIB), the client wanted to enhance their make to stock capabilities. Additionally, raw materials shortages emphasized the need for better supply chain visibility. These new demands, the current environment, and a recent merger of multiple companies required the client to enhance their capabilities of three key supply chain systems: advanced planning (APS), order management (OMS), and warehouse management (WMS).
Each of these systems plays an important role for the company’s brands. As a continuously growing and changing company, the client wished to seize the opportunity to optimize their planning, order management, fulfillment, and warehouse management capabilities to improve efficiency, reduce costs and improve business practices.
