Logistics technology: Savi introduces new synchronizing solution
July 08, 2010
Lockheed Martin’s Savi Technology announced its SmartChain Consignment Management Application (CMA) software platform version 6.0 achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver PI technology platform.
SmartChain CMA integrates with SAP solutions to provide an automated solution synchronizing supply chain planning and execution operations for defense, public sector and commercial customers.
“SmartChain CMA helps bridge gaps among planning, inventorying, tracking and delivery processes,” said John McFadyen, senior vice president of Savi Technology’s International Operations.
In an interview with LM, Mohammad Avani, senior director of product management for Savi, said integration with additional SAP modules is currently under development.
“We will continue to expand our integration with SAP within various industries, specially, in Oil & Gas and Aerospace & Defense,” he said.
According to spokesmen, the certified integration enables Savi’s SmartChain CMA platform and applications for asset, shipment and consignment management to link supply chain visibility information in-transit and on-site with operational planning tools.
As a result, said spokesmen, shippers running SmartChain CMA together with SAP solutions can more quickly adjust their supplies and deliveries to changes in demand or situational requirements.
In addition, SmartChain CMA linked to sensor-based data may provide greater awareness of asset conditions and security status. Automated alerts report on unplanned events as they happen, and supply chain partners can share information when needed.
