Supply Chain Planning (SCP)
CCL’s global corporate competitive advantage is geared towards improving every aspect of the business process. About 15 years ago, CCL began helping producers of fast-moving consumer goods by taking a different approach towards supply chain optimization strategies. Our Supply Chain Planning (SCP) system monitors demand and manages printing to meet customer needs and in some cases, to move to just-in-time ordering. The supply chain optimization strategies provide access to real-time data related to the order process, inventory, delivery and potential supply chain disruptions. Through the real-time insights from data, AI helps correlate across disparate systems where users can make faster queries to speed resolution of shipment and order issues. Additionally, the SCP system automatically recommends what to make, how much to make, and when to make it. The system uploads all the demand forecasts and monitors all inventory and demand changes in a very efficient way. Real-time intelligence and actionable recommendations provided by embedded AI capabilities are designed to help our teams reduce disruption mitigation time from days to hours. New data-driven insights can uncover opportunities to increase efficiencies and reduce costs. CCL’s SCP system also helps with shared real-time visibility to our supply chain partners, suppliers, and customers — while enabling traceability and ensuring authenticity. Our supply chain teams are prepared with multiple suppliers to prevent disruption. With our optimized performance, you can rely on our tooling to circumvent any challenges.
