Blue Yonder’s supply planning solution provides Transsion with a holistic and connected view of its supply chain planning processes. In addition, Transsion can balance global objectives for demand satisfaction, collaborate on planning scenarios in situations of material shortage, and use prescriptive recommendations to make accurate and faster decisions throughout the manufacturing and distribution network.
