SAP said it has completed the first customer shipments of its Advanced Planner and Optimiser (APO) software, which provides synchronised planning and collaboration among supply chain partners.
SAP APO is central to the SAP Supply Chain Optimisation, Planning and Execution (Scope) initiative, which the company announced last year, and has now been merged into its New Dimensions strategy (see separate stories).
Since the APO pilot project was launched in July a number of companies have tested the software, including Colgate-Palmolive, and Goodyear Tyre & Rubber. SAP expects to have up to 50 customers for APO this month, with the product going on general availability in December.
APO provides a complete suite of advanced planning software for real time decision support across all elements of the supply chain. SAP also announced plans to extend the functionality of APO, with new warehousing and transportation components to allow for more efficent movement of a product along the supply chain.
The aim of Scope is to provide a closed loop supply chain from product design to the final consumer.
