SAP Integrated Business Planning (IBP)

Integrated Business Planning platform is SAP’s state-of-the-art tool for cloud-based integrated supply chain planning.

SAP IBP offers unified planning across sales and operations, demand, inventory, response and supply as well as supply chain control tower dashboard analytics and monitoring.

SAP IBP was built from the ground up to leverage the power of SAP HANA, and delivers a planner centric user experience, with real-time dashboards, interactive simulation, embedded social collaboration using SAP Jam and Microsoft Excel-enabled planning tables.

Building on our heritage of expertise in SAP Supply Chain, Olivehorse has led the way in developing IBP advisory and implementation capability and services. We are already guiding clients in shaping their approach and have helped deliver one of the largest implementations of IBP for Sales and Operations in Europe.

Olivehorse is also one of the few partners who have their own IBP system, fully integrated with the Jam collaboration tool and ECC and APO systems via SAP HANA Cloud Integration. This integrated platform enables our customers to explore, at first hand, how IBP could fit into their landscape through rapid proof of concepts and demonstrations.

Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)

DDMRP is a proven and rapidly-growing methodology which has shown success in reducing inventories and improving service across a broad spectrum of industries.

It works by decoupling the supply chain, creating independence between supply and demand. It means each node can operate efficiently, without the disruption of demand and supply variability, breaking the classic bullwhip effect.

Over the past few years we have implemented DDMRP in many manufacturing facilities. We know how to bring you the benefits of decoupling, whilst not impacting the value of your current SCM tools.

At Olivehorse we have a passion for taking innovations in supply chain planning and creating value adding solutions that work in the real world. That is why we have partnered with Demand Driven Technologies, offering Replenishment+ to our clients. It was the first DDMRP certified solution, a simple visual planning solution, easy to integrate into your existing ERP solution.
