Supply Chain Capacity Management

Manage capacity constraints proactively.

Supplier capacity risk is one of several factors supply chain managers need to evaluate in order to ensure the uninterrupted flow of parts and products necessary to service fluctuating customer demand. A lack of visibility to supplier capacity constraints can directly lead to lost revenue and market share, and declines in customer satisfaction and shareholder value if you cannot respond to supply shortages and demand surges.

Resilinc Supplier Capacity Management provides a proactive capacity management system to ensure you have the necessary supplier capacity at a part-level to meet fluctuating demand forecasts. Analytics focus you on high-risk suppliers and parts based on risk thresholds you define, while alerts, mitigation workflows, and complementary event monitoring services facilitate on-going capacity management excellence.

Supplier Capacity Management Challenges

Is there a way to cost-effectively gather and maintain reliable supply chain partner capacity intelligence and encourage on-going partner collaboration?

Gaining visibility to supplier capacity planning management processes and constraints

Before you can assess capacity vulnerabilities in your supplier network and before you can detect and mitigate capacity risks, you first need visibility to identify critical suppliers and gather supplier intelligence at the company, product, part, and process level. This requires resources, a process, supplier surveying best practices, and capacity data expertise.


Is there a more simple way to assess and mitigate capacity risks?

Analyzing and proactively mitigating capacity risks and preparing for inevitable disruptions

Once you have gathered supplier capacity risk intelligence, it’s time to analyze your supplier network capacity to identify high-risk suppliers and parts, mitigation options, and appropriate action plans to secure the inventory needed to meet forecasted demand including “positive risks” such as demand surges. This requires sophisticated analytic and workflow capabilities such as supplier risk scoring, revenue impact calculations, and monitoring and alert processes.


Is there a single SCRM platform that can go beyond Capacity Management to manage multiple supply chain initiatives in a cost-effective, repeatable, and scalable way?

Leveraging investments in business process automation and tools across multiple supply chain risk management initiatives

Capacity management is now one of multiple supply chain initiatives that companies are managing. Others include disruption risk management, compliance, business continuity planning, corporate social responsibility, and supply chain security. As a result, it is critical to leverage common processes and tools for supply chain mapping and data collection, risk assessment, event/incident monitoring, and change notification.  Failure to consolidate supplier collaboration processes and create a centralized repository of supplier information, will result in tremendous inefficiencies and a “one-off” process that is not repeatable or scalable to address on-going supply chain initiative needs.
