Commitment to Developing Structured Demand and Supply Planning Methods
Shanghai (April 16, 2015) – Today at the APICS 2015 Shanghai conference, APICS, the premier professional association for supply chain and operations management, announced Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has won the APICS Corporate Award of Excellence in Asia.
TCS was selected based on their dedication to excellence in the field of supply chain and operations management. The company made an impressive commitment to improving forecasting, planning, and collaboration using an innovative virtual reality program.
Through its “Optimized Planning in Virtual Reality” project, TCS has the ability to program a number of real-world variables that mimic challenges presented by their global supply chain. The project enables them to simulate a potential future state, which allows them to plan, forecast and compare the forecast to results. By developing and using a virtual environment, TCS was able to improve visibility and management of supply chain inventory, as well as enhance their overall demand planning.
“We are very pleased to award the APICS Corporate Award of Excellence to Tata Consultancy Services,” said APICS Chief Executive Officer, Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE. “Their commitment to improving supply chain planning practices through the use of virtual reality was truly innovative and has certainly earned them this recognition.”
