OPD Solutions, a leading international consulting group specializing in supply chain management, announced today that it will be IBM's worldwide sales agent for its integrated supply chain software solution, the IBM Operational Framework for Advanced Supply Chain Planning (PROFIT). The offering will now be available for clients who require a suite of integrated tools in order to help enable the supply chain optimization of complex manufacturing environments.
IBM developed the suite based on the principles of OPD's Total Order Management (TOM®) business process model. The TOM® process model has been successfully implemented in many high-tech international organizations.
"We are very pleased to offer our clients a complete package of a proven business process and the most advanced supply chain planning tool available today," said Mike Morrissette, President of OPD Solutions, Inc. "The IBM Operational Framework complements our Total Order Management (TOM®) business process model because it was developed in conjunction with the implementation of the TOM® model in the IBM Microelectronics Division. This is one software solution that supports supply chain planning at an enterprise level when implemented with TOM®."
The software suite supports all aspects of supply chain planning from demand management to available to promise (ATP). Regardless of the business size or industry, the suite of tools can provide a comprehensive, long-term solution that will adapt to the needs of organizations as their business grows, market conditions change and the supply chain network becomes more complex.
"OPD Solutions is well-respected in the supply chain space within the semiconductor and electronic systems industries," said Craig Luhrman, Director of Microelectronics Sales for Channels and Business Partners, IBM.
