Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Goes Live with JDA Sales and Operations Planning and Supply Chain Planning Solutions

Leading global information and communications technology solutions provider looks to innovate and improve business planning capabilities

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- JDA®Software Group, Inc. (NAS: JDAS) , The Supply Chain Company®, today announced that Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider, has gone live with JDA® Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), JDA® Supply Chain Planner, and the JDA® Agile Business Process Platform.

Huawei's S&OP planning cycle includes demand planning, supply planning, inventory management, supply/demand balance and financial forecasting. JDA's S&OP solution is helping to reconcile these different perspectives, resulting in an operational plan that is approved by executives and has buy-in from every department. Huawei is using the S&OP solution to integrate Huawei's S&OP processes for its headquarters, region and sales offices, help enable data visibility based on user authority, improve S&OP accuracy by enabling users to check consensus demand, supply constraints, NPI data, financial plans and targets, and enable waterfall analysis.

With its ability to optimize constraints, margins and costs across production, distribution, inventory and procurement, JDA® Supply Chain Planner is helping Huawei to build one globally synchronized plan that responds quickly to both supply and demand volatility, resulting in both increased customer satisfaction and higher profits.

JDA Consulting Services led the design and implementation of the JDA® Sales and Operation Planning solution, and provided the business process consulting for JDA Supply Chain Planner.

"Huawei has been doing business with JDA for 10 years, and through our longstanding partnership they have grown to fully understand and be able to match Huawei's business needs," said Gong Yanglong, project manager, enterprise planning department, Huawei Technologies. "By working with them on this latest supply chain initiative we have been able to make additional improvements to our supply chain that we believe will continue to deliver value to our company."
