Roland DG Corporation live with Kinaxis RapidResponse
Roland DG Corporation live with Kinaxis RapidResponse : Kinaxis, announced that Roland DG Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and 3D devices, has deployed Kinaxis RapidResponse at the company’s operations in Japan, Asia, North America and Europe.
In the coming years, one of Roland DG’s objectives is to evolve the organization from a manufacturer of high-performance computer peripherals into a leading source for cutting-edge digital solutions that bring digital data to life. Because of its objective to stay at the forefront of technology innovations, the company’s current supply chain and S&OP systems were creating limitations for the team to operate their business efficiently.
Roland DG found that they were making daily decisions on how inventory should be placed and moved without the ability for comprehensive inventory management analysis across its global supply chain. As a result, it is difficult to determine inventory availability, which creates risk for either inventory excesses or shortatges. The shortage of necessary items causes frequent adjustments to demand and supply balancing.
The electronics manufacturing company wanted to manage its supply chain as a single continuous pipeline, from one system, to build an efficient operation with maximum returns and minimum asset utilization. Roland DG selected RapidResponse to replace SAP APO and move away from heavy planning workloads, long processing times to perform scenario simulations and limited visibility into material constraints. With RapidResponse, the team can dynamically balance supply and demand in response to ever-changing conditions. RapidResponse will be deployed to drive SCM and S&OP effectiveness through improved multi-tier visibility and tight integration and alignment of all planning functions.
Kinaxis is a leading provider of cloud-based subscription software that enables our customers to improve and accelerate analysis and decision-making across their supply chain operations. The supply chain planning and analytics capabilities of our product, RapidResponse, create the foundation for managing multiple, interconnected supply chain management processes. By using the single RapidResponse product instead of combining individual disparate software solutions, our customers gain visibility across their supply chains, can respond quickly to changing conditions, and ultimately realize significant operating efficiencies.
