WILMINGTON, DEL. – April 25, 2011 – Arkieva (arkieva.com), designer and supplier of the Arkieva suite of supply chain management (SCM) software products, announced today the successful implementation of its S&OP solution in the Forest Product Division of Momentive Specialty Chemicals. Arkieva automates and standardizes the collection, reporting, and analysis of information for use during Momentive’s S&OP meetings.
Momentive Specialty Chemicals is a world leader in thermosetting resins used in bonding, binding and coating applications.
The Arkieva S&OP Workbench provides organizations with the tools to integrate data from many systems, including SAP, spreadsheets, and other legacy systems. Users can perform “what-if” scenarios during executive S&OP meetings to make the most informed supply chain decisions. All of the data needed for conducting S&OP meetings, as well as demand planning and supply planning pre-S&OP meetings, is available in one place.
Arkieva allows management to answer important questions during the meetings without reconvening for multiple iterations. It includes views relevant to finance, sales, and operations, helping to synchronize activities of these business functions. Arkieva turns plans into both revenue and earnings based on input selling prices and costs and compares plans to actuals over time.
