Explore how IDEXX Laboratories — the global leader in veterinary diagnostics, software, and water microbiology testing — leveraged SAP Integrated Business Planning to address the planning requirements for one of its most rapidly growing business units. Learn how a service-based supply chain can be modeled in SAP Integrated Business Planning to address capacity (both people and equipment), where very short turnaround times are required. This session shows:

  • How planners migrated from very large macro-enabled spreadsheets to a fully systematic solution
  • How demand planning in SAP Integrated Business Planning improved the company’s forecast accuracy
  • The benefits and challenges of heuristics and the SAP Integrated Business Planning optimizer in service supply chain planning
  • The time savings gained by using the alert functionality
