Adapting the “SAP Integrated Business Planning for Demand-Driven Replenishment” software in the global BSH Supply Chain Transformation project ‘IMPulse’, the implementation partner has been honored with a most prestigious consulting award.
Mannheim, December 4, 2019 – Europe’s largest home appliances manufacturer BSH Hausgeräte GmbH and Camelot have been awarded with the prestigious Wirtschaftswoche ‘Best of Consulting’ award for the global supply chain transformation project ‘IMPulse”. An important element of the project was creating a transparent, Demand-Driven, end-to-end supply chain by implementing SAP Integrated Business Planning (SAP IBP) for Demand-Driven Replenishment.
“SAP Integrated Business Planning and the Camelot team helped us shape our future digital supply chain based on a state-of-the-art planning application. We’re closing in on our goal to become and stay the first choice for consumers worldwide”, says Dietmar Baumann, responsible for the IT part of the IMPulse project.
The core of ’IMPulse’ is the transformation to an integrated, global supply chain based on the new paradigm of Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management. The Demand-Driven approach ensures the resilience of the supply chain. In the case of BSH, this means that the home appliance manufacturer can offer its more than 50,000 customers worldwide perfect customer service despite strong demand volatility and high market complexity – with optimum inventories and reduced costs. To support the new processes and ways of working, implementing the right IT solution was essential. BSH opted for the state-of-the art cloud solution SAP Integrated Business Planning and its new module SAP IBP for Demand-Driven Replenishment, which makes the Demand-Driven approach reality within SAP IBP.
Co-development of SAP IBP for Demand-Driven Replenishment
Earlier this year, SAP announced a joint initiative with Camelot ITLab to co-develop a solution to bring the Demand-Driven Adaptive Enterprise (DDAE) model into the SAP Integrated Business Planning solution. This offering aims to help companies drive a more nimble and adaptive supply chain management process to directly address the challenges of increasingly volatile business landscapes. The agreement is meant to establish Camelot ITLab as the strategic development partner to develop jointly with SAP Demand-Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) within SAP Integrated Business Planning. The new module SAP Integrated Business Planning for Demand-Driven Replenishment extends the existing DDMRP capabilities of SAP Integrated Business Planning and allows companies to apply a state-of-the-art Demand-Driven approach to their supply chains.
Camelot ITLab is an established SAP partner, specializing in digital value chain management with a strong track record of successful innovations and large-scale supply chain transformations. As global affiliate of Demand Driven Institute (DDI), Camelot will be a global implementation partner for this new joint solution, offering “Thoughtware and Courseware” conducted by certified DDI-instructors to help customers adopt the new Demand-Driven principles.
