Manufacturers worldwide are expected to invest up to $50 billion in Advanced Planning and Scheduling systems (APS) in order to reap over 10 times that investment in savings, according to Keith Burgess from KPMG Consulting. The market for APS has been overshadowed by investment into Y2K compliance, but with the approach of the new millennium, manufacturers' attention will be focused more than ever on greater savings and more efficient supply chains. As a result, manufacturers will invest greatly in APS. To maximize savings, however, it is important to re-engineer the way in which the supply chain is managed.
