Order Promising & Allocation Planning
Fulfilling orders fast, reliably and profitably
Intelligent Order Promising for a volatile market
Steady supply and demand is a thing of the past, and customer demand has replaced supply as the primary driver of value chains. Recent events exposed major market disruptions that production adjustments alone cannot counteract. Those who anticipate market changes and intelligently manage surges and shortages will succeed.
When demand outweighs supply, prioritizing orders strategically to ensure your most profitable customers and channels are served first from constrained inventory is key. Order Promising has become a mission-critical process of any state-of-the-art supply chain and an enabler to deliver exceptional customer service. Complementing your Order Management System (OMS) with intelligent, robust order promising capabilities enables you to maximize sales and profit opportunities, optimally balance supply and demand, and ensure superior productivity. The powerful algorithms and patented logic in Blue Yonder’s Order Promising & Allocation Planning application generate accurate promise dates that align with your company’s overarching strategic objectives and customer and channel priorities while considering inventory and capacity availability.

Global Chip Shortage OR '5 Steps to Maximize Sales & Profit Opportunities with Order Promising'
Implications of the Chip Shortage in Discrete Manufacturing
The global pandemic, digital transformation and the increasing demand for new technology has drawn all eyes to the semiconductor industry and the technology companies that make the digital world go round.
- Semiconductors underpin the modern car’s value proposition
As automotive is veering toward electric and autonomous vehicles, the amount of chips carmakers need is likely to increase further.
- COVID caused an acceleration
COVID accelerated digital transformation and the adoption of emergent technologies. Since the supply chain for car chips is particularly long and complex, extended lead times are expected to last.
- Need for increased capacity
Semiconductors need to increase their capacity by doing things faster through cycle time reduction, adding more people and more machines, and building square meters. They need to keep innovating to fuel the digital future.
- Trade-off between just-in-time inventory management & contingency stock
For the semiconductor industry and other industries where supply uncertainty drives shortages and plan changes, there’s a delicate trade-off in supply chains between just-in-time inventory management and building stock for contingencies.
In industries where demand exceeds supply, Blue Yonder Order Promiser helps manufacturers ensure their most profitable key channels and customers are allocated constrained supply to meet customer service levels profitably. Also OP can be used for contingency planning.
