Supply Planning

NetSuite Supply Planning helps supply planners determine how to best establish criteria to fulfill demand plan requirements. Supply planning uses sales order details to generate dependent demand for work order components. The objective is to balance supply and demand to achieve your organization’s financial and service objectives.

Supply plans generate a suggested schedule for purchasing or manufacturing items for supply. A supply plan lists the suggested purchase orders and work orders that can increase item supply based on lead times and expected demand. Planners can create multiple supply plans which can vary depending on the planner’s criteria, such as planning horizon, planning scope, and planning rules.
