SCM Focus Software Blog
Welcome to SCM Focus
- SCM Focus is an independent analysis and educational portal which focuses on a wide variety of supply chain planning software. We have over a 1100 articles in our portal on supply chain planning and IT implementation topics.
- Many of the articles are quite detailed and cover anything from supply chain planning in SAP APO configuration to forecasting to inventory optimization and multi-echelon planning.
Our Focus on IT Implementation of Supply Chain Planning Software
Our articles are written by those with experience in IT implementation who work with the software that they cover. We are one of the sites to describe the bad as well as the good to supply chain planning IT implementation. Readers can always expect the straight story from SCM Focus articles. We can do this because we both take no advertising and we are not paid by vendors. This is described in our Writing Rules.
We also strive for reproducibility, so if we describe how to do something in an article, the reader should be able to reproduce the activity which is written about. We provide consulting services in the topics in which we write. However, most people use the site as a reference portal for getting their own work done, or learning about new developments and methods in supply chain planning software.
We provide behind the scenes information on everything from how IT implementation companies operate, to the analysis of subcontractor agreements. The articles are focused on practical implement-ability. They must pass editorial standards regarding accuracy, level of detail covered, clarity and realism. Your can read more on this topic at About Us.
