Advanced Planning and Scheduling Systems: The Quest to Leverage ERP for Better Planning

Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 151)


In this chapter, we focus on advanced planning and scheduling (APS) systems: their emergence as a replacement of materials requirements planning (MRP) systems and their eventual evolution into supply chain management (SCM) systems. This chapter provides a view from a software application provider’s perspective and is based on the author’s 10+years of experience in various roles in one of the software application providers. As it represents one point of view, it is not meant to be comprehensive, nor to include all activities and developments that took place in academia or in industry in the time period covered by this chapter.
