Made2Manage® with SCM enables you to effectively manage your supply chain.
Supply Chain Management (SCM) is defined as planning and scheduling the flow of material through one or more organizations over time to satisfy end-customer demand.
Whether you’re a small or midsize manufacturer, your enterprise maintains critical connections to customers, suppliers and other vendors.
The SCM module for the Made2Manage® (M2M®) enables you to more effectively manage your supply chain by synchronizing the demand for your products with your production capabilities, optimize your resource usage and maximize throughput so there are less disruptions and fewer fires to put out.
