In June, software behemoth SAP plans to release a new and improved version of its supply chain management (SCM) suite, according to CNET News.com.
The suite’s service-parts management component houses the biggest changes and they’re mostly aimed at business sectors, like small-scale production, in which parts often arrive in the right place “just in time,” according to CNET News.com.
The new offering, called MySAP Supply Chain Management version 5.0, was first introduced last week in Hanover, Germany at the annual CeBIT conference, an IT tradeshow, CNET News.com reports.
SAP says the new software can manage low-cost parts, and it will help companies evolve their traditional supply chains into more modern networks of supply chain partners, according to CNET News.com. It also enables businesses to better address increasing levels of customer service and decreasing inventories, to derive an efficient balance between the two, CNET News.com reports.
MySAP Supply Chain Management version 5.0 also contains industry-specific functionality, and it was designed for use in diverse sectors, according to CNET News.com.
