Main differentiation between Oracle Rapid Planning and Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning is time it takes to simulate changes. Using Rapid Planning you can simulate any changes and run plan to see recommendations without lengthy data collections.
Any emergency / rush order is considered as hot demand. Whenever hot demand orders are received, the order information is manually entered in Rapid planning plan and planning recommendations can be reviewed and released by planners.
Engineering change cut-in:
Any ECO changes that results new items introduced or existing items phased out, we can update the same information in entered rapid planning server, plan is run to review/release the recommendations
When their is production change that would affect the potential onhand, it is considered as yield bust.
Resource downtime information can be entered in plan to do simulations on the supply/demand changes.
