SmartsEngine for IBP

Doing IBP within the SmartEngine Platform

Executing Comprehensive S&OP/IBP Activity with Great Efficiency within a Business IQ Development Platform.

SmartsEngine for IBP is not an extension of IBP functionality. It is very comprehensive IBP functionality that exists within and is executed within a business IQ development platform. SmartsEngine houses comprehensive planning modules (forecasting, demand, inventory, supply chain, resource, IBP, financial) and an advanced KPI module as base layer functionality, all of which it transforms within its overarching methodology for business IQ development.

If implemented for IBP, then as an enterprise uses SmartsEngine to operate its IBP processes, the platform develops the enterprise's business IQ -- its collective ability to read and process the game, navigate, and evolve as a learning organization -- within the scope of what IBP addresses.

The SmartsEngine Platform Creates a Consummate IBP Platform

Immediately Achieves and Exceeds Gartner's Level V of IBP Maturity

As a consummate IBP platform per se, SmartsEngine immediately achieves and exceeds Gartner's Level V of IBP maturity. It maintains a complete and current picture of all IBP opportunities, issues, options, thinking, and plans–eliminating packet prep work and enabling better visibility, fewer surprises, and faster response.

S&OP/IBP has be promulgated as a series of regularly scheduled meetings. With SmartsEngine the familiar cadence of meetings can be dispensed with because S&OP/IBP data is always current within the platform. Meetings and convenings and submeetings can take place whenever needed, at timely decision points. Managers and analysts do not have to wait for meetings to roll around.
