“The flexis HYBRID architecture successfully transitions our portfolio of integrated planning applications for the automotive, manufacturing and logistics industries into cloud-native services that can be deployed across any public or private cloud as well as the flexis cloud platform,” said Philipp Beisswenger, CEO for flexis AG.

More than ever, integrated systems are of paramount importance for companies with global supply chains that need to plan with foresight and stability. The flexis cloud platform provides integrated modules for supply chain management that allow businesses to move away from reactive decisions and towards proactive supply chain strategies:

  • Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP): Variant-rich industries count on the flexis S&OP solution for greater flexibility managing sales and planning structures and product variety. The solution provides reliable knowledge about the demand situation, especially where, when, what, and how much is needed. An integrated forecasting procedure facilitates planning decisions.

  • Advanced Planning & Scheduling (APS): With more than 25 years supporting many well-known automotive industry OEMs, flexis offers industry-tested APS solutions that can handle very complex production processes in discrete manufacturing when many restrictions have to be considered in an optimization run. APS solutions use a variety of interconnected modules to look at the relationship between sales and production (Order Slotting & Scheduling), plant capabilities (Detailed or Job Shop Scheduling), and the optimal schedule to maximize production efficiency (Sequencing).

  • Transportation Planning & Scheduling: Complex logistics challenges benefit from a holistic model that incorporates all transportation details—including multi-modal transportation—to optimize long-range and operational planning. The flexis cloud provides APIs for running use case scenarios to determine optimal transportation planning and scheduling across a supply chain. Site locations can be changed and evaluated individually in light of operational objectives, such as sustainability goals. Real-time insight into the supply pipeline through intelligent solutions and software can form the basis for more efficiency and productivity for planners and managers.

  • Multi Dimension Monitoring provides a detailed dashboard that allows planners to visualize the supply situation in real-time and provide reliable transparency of bottlenecks, ranges of coverage, and inventories. Planners can even drill down to the order or parts level to identify any potential problem areas.

“The flexis end-2-end cloud platform for supply chain management builds on our more than 25-year legacy of innovative solutions that help customers in a wide range of industries optimize their supply chain planning,” said Beisswenger. “Our focus is always on the customer's continuous improvement process.”
