Zukhra Livitskaya, SAP Project Manager at IBA Group’s Global Delivery Center in Kazakhstan, shared a case study of implementing SAP IBP for a pharmaceutical company. As part of the project, IBA Group specialists implemented optimization and balancing of planning processes, including supply, production, and sales planning. The project had to take into account the following factors:

  • Fixed and variable costs, including purchasing, transport, production, marketing, and warehousing
  • Limitations of the supply chain, including production assets and specifics, transport capabilities, warehouse capacity, supplier conditions, and target stock levels

The implementation helped the client optimize the inventory levels and supply chain, ensure rapid response to market changes, and raise the level of customer service.
