Inventory Liability & Risk Management Dashboard
Most hi-tech organizations can ill afford the risks posed by unseen inventory exposure in the extended supply chain. Accurate evaluation of inventory risk and liability is, however, a complex process due to critical business issues like short product cycle, complex supply networks, long lead time, and dynamic demand pattern.
iGATE, in collaboration with SAP, has designed an Inventory Liability & Risk Management Dashboard that provides near real-time financial value of inventory liability across the supply network. The dashboard provides a snapshot of inventory data from all business partners connected through SAP's SNC ERP systems including insight into raw material, sub assemblies, FWIP, and finished goods. The solution equips hi-tech enterprises with the tools necessary to proactively plan for supply-demand synchronization and thereby profit from immediate financial gains with minimal investment commitments.
iGATE offers two approaches for inventory liability analysis; namely 'Inventory Exposure' and 'Valuation of Multi-Echelon Inventory Obsolescence'.
This metric refers to the amount of committed inventory within the total supply chain based upon expected demand and the cumulative lead-times associated with the current supply chain.
Valuation of Multi-Echelon Inventory Obsolescence
This measure judges the benefit of inventory analytics in postponing the accrual of inventory in the supply chain downstream by aligning production schedules of components manufacturers and suppliers to the demand for the finished good.
Enterprises can leverage iGATE's expertise to benefit from:
Deep understanding of Supply Network Collaboration through strategic partnership with SAP
Domain expertise in supply chain processes of hi-tech firms
Proof-of-Concept solution before commitment on deployment.
Risk Free Fast-track implementation
Low on-going application support cost.
