JDA Software Group Inc. Announces New Capabilities in the JDA® Transportation Portfolio

JDA Software Group Inc. announced new capabilities in the JDA® Transportation portfolio that help companies make smarter, more strategic shipping and delivery decisions. By balancing internal capacities and constraints with customer promises, this enhanced functionality supports a new level of resiliency and agility that companies need in complex business landscape. JDA Transportation solutions are part of JDA’s Intelligent Fulfillment™ software portfolio, which delivers synchronization, constraint awareness and zero latency to enable more profitable fulfillment for both retailers and manufacturers in an omni-channel world. Key enhancements to the JDA Transportation portfolio center around fixed fleet routing with dynamic insertion, minimizing cost and maximizing service levels in today’s high pressure, omni-channel fulfillment environment: More granular level of item-awareness during load building. With this JDA-exclusive capability,shippers can apply granular, warehouse-aware item definitions to improve load building, decrease costs, and maximize equipment and resource utilization " as well as increase visibility and exception management. Shippers can define item-level details, including warehouse locations and constraints, profiles, groupings, packaging hierarchies and loading factors. As a result, loading efficiencies are improved at both shipping origin and all destinations. In addition, lower-level packaging is automatically rolled up into higher-level packaging for more efficient equipment utilization and shipment handling. Load planners can maximize capacity based on the number of stops, loading type and item type " leading to more profitable, more executable loads. Dynamic shipment splitting that’s concurrent with routing. New functionality, exclusive to JDA, enables companies to strategically split shipments into two or more sub-shipments to improve load efficiency " and this splitting occurs concurrently with routing in a seamless, fluid process. All sub-shipments reference the original shipment for the purpose of tracking. Shipment splitting can be configured at the container level and controlled at the origin and destination locations. Splitting is applicable to both greater-than-truckload and less-than-truckload shipments. Load planners can control the number of times a shipment can be split, as well as the minimum split size, to honor both physical and business constraints. Shipment prioritization. A new capability in the JDA Transportation portfolio considers the priority of shipments based on system inputs that are provided by solutions like upstream replenishment planning. This capability enables load planners to differentiate high-priority shipments that must travel immediately from less urgent shipments that can start later in the planning horizon. Shipment prioritization drives resource, dock and throughput optimization " while supporting the consolidation of shipments with similar priorities during the load-building process. Enhancements to integrated fleet management. JDA Transportation functionality allows planners to define “skeleton” routes, with stop sequences and load characteristics that are best to service frequently recurring freight movements. While these routes are predefined, JDA now provides the flexibility to fill any available space in real time as plans change. Capacity can be pre-booked for these shipments, then an optimization process will fill empty stops on these skeleton routes with eligible shipments when they become available. Planners can also pre-book resources such as carrier capacity and dock capacity for forecasted shipments. These new capabilities allow the integration of all available resources, offering both flexibility and maximum cost efficiency. Enhancements toTransportation Smartbench. This release also includes new capabilities in Transportation Smartbench, JDA’s powerful user interface which provides data for real-time decision making. In addition to various enhancements related to load building and containerization; additional features include additional primary entities, including shipments, trips and skeleton routes and all the relevant functions associated with those entities, including trip rate shopping as well as manual shipment splits.

JDA Software Group, Inc. Announces New Capabilities in JDA® Enterprise Supply Planning™

JDA Software Group Inc. has announced new capabilities in JDA® Enterprise Supply Planning™ to target many problem areas of the supply chain — and quickly recommend corrective actions that are consistent with long-term strategic and financial goals. Leveraged by manufacturers and retailers around the world, JDA Enterprise Supply Planning brings together best-of-breed products JDA Master Planning™ and JDA Supply Chain Planner™. With this foundation, JDA Enterprise Supply Planning helps companies build one globally synchronized, time-phased plan — optimizing performance across multiple supply chain partners and diverse activities such as procurement, manufacturing, distribution and inventory. The newest release of JDA Enterprise Supply Planning features an Agile Control Tower (ACT) that eliminates the “guess and check” cycle that typically occurs when supply chain exceptions are flagged. Instead of simply providing a rapid what-if capability, JDA’s Agile Control Tower diagnoses the cause and suggests solutions from a pre-determined library of actions. It provides instant simulation of selected choices while respecting strategic priorities and projecting impact across the entire supply chain so planners can view actual cost and performance trade-offs before taking action. As a result, companies are able to course correct rapidly while still delivering the best possible results across the entire supply chain. Companies leveraging the newest version of JDA Enterprise Supply Planning can meet their long-term financial goals by exercising greater cost control, asset utilization and supply chain resiliency when the unexpected occurs. Because they can more closely adhere to production and delivery schedules, they can also maintain high customer service and satisfaction metrics.
