Service Inventory Optimization (SIO)
Service Inventory Optimization (SIO) is a module from MCA Solutions that complements and extends SAP's Service Parts Planning (SPP) application with service parts forecasting and inventory optimization. SIO has a certified integration with SPP that uses Enterprise Services for Service Parts Planning which can be seen here.
- Composite forecasting which blends historical demand, installed base and service entitlements, along with causal factors based on data availability and stage in product lifecycle.
- Multi-echelon, multi-indenture optimization to determine what to stock, at what location and at which level of the service BOM.
- Contract coverage analysis.
- Fill rate or availability driven service levels with budget constraints.
