ConAgra Foods, a leading producer of consumer and commercial foods, was on a mission to enhance their supply chain planning so they could maximize their ability to meet expanding customer demand. This meant improving several important KPIs, including:
- forecast accuracy
- inventory carrying costs
- the rate at which cases are filled on time
- metrics for weekly production cycle achievement
This would enable ConAgra to increase revenue, while minimizing their operating costs and ultimately driving a greater return on investment.
ConAgra implemented SAP® Enterprise Inventory Optimization by SmartOps to help optimize inventory levels throughout their supply chain. They can now analyze data to identify changes in demand, supply, and network alignment. These insights allow them to make decisions for achieving optimal inventory levels, freeing working capital, and improving customer service.
ConAgra achieved a substantial reduction in inventory costs by replacing eleven supply chain applications with one. And they optimized capacity planning by successfully migrating from eight planning organizations to an enterprise structure – with a single, unified strategy.
