Multi-criteria analysis of Advanced Planning System implementation
MetadataShow full item record
The implementation of Advanced Planning Systems (APS) software may offers to Supply Chain Management (SCM) planning and optimization functionalities to industrial processes. A complete assessment of APS implementation should involve multiple criteria. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is worldwide multi-criteria analysis method. The Benefits, Opportunities, Costs, and Risks (BOCR) is a model developed from AHP theory. BOCR model allows a flexible analysis and potentially richer as opposed to only costs and benefits analysis. For APS implementation benefits are regarding to customer services, internal business processes and modular architecture issues; Opportunities relates to flexibility in adapting to changes, errors reducing, innovation and learning; Costs relates to project on budget, project on time and SCM costs; and Risks are associated with data, process, and user fit. The objective in this paper is to present a model for the assessment of APS implementation.
