It is no longer enough to have stand-alone applications for supply chain management, supply chain planning, and supply chain event management. These applications are too critical to a company’s survival to operate in a vacuum. Yet many companies have invested in a best-of-breed approach, or have legacy applications in place that don’t include the latest functionality or technology. Even more important, most of these applications focus on where the company has been, because they rely on historical data, and tell the user little or nothing about the current situation. And they are rarely capable of presenting a plan for moving forward.
Now, a new wave of SCM solutions is beginning to crest on the market. Adexa’s eGPS is an early example of such a solution that can squarely address these new market demands. The new offerings begin with a Web-native code base designed to exploit the enhanced Web-browser and Internet-based collaboration tools. The new versions provide an architectural framework and establish a single “system-of-record” repository for an enterprise’s entire supply chain.
Supply Chain Operational Excellence is a management strategy that helps manufacturers optimize their performance in those areas that really matter, achieve preferred supplier status, and survive in extremely competitive markets. Implementing such programs is challenging but possible when companies use appropriate software solutions. This paper describes the basic tenets of Supply Chain Operational Excellence, establishes a model for selecting supporting software and demonstrates how ADEXA’s Enterprise GPS meets these challenging issues.

1st generation SCP systems were factory planning systems or APS, introduced in mid-80’s followed by supply chain planning as the next generation. More recently the 3rd generation introduced sales and operations in an integrated environment which was later improved to the 4th generation by adding financials into the equation forming the 4th generation of SCP systems.
One way to define intelligence is the ability to predict the outcome of different circumstances and/or construct a scenario to get the desired outcome.
The word “intelligent” is used commonly to indicate how well a software package was designed to respond to different conditions. The more conditions it is programmed to handle, then the more, so is claimed, intelligent is the software package.
If the next 10 years bears even the same kind of growth and innovation that we have experienced in the past decade, then we are going to be witnessing an incredible era in transformation of supply chains and how the age of real-time connectivity will create virtually instant delivery of what we desire.
