The Infor M3 Fresh Food Planner (FFP) is a new application for companies that produce ultra-fresh food with shelf-life counted in days rather than weeks and months. This application is designed to deliver a new way of planning fresh food production. The new concept of "forecast pacing" provides detailed insight into current and historical flow of orders down to the hourly level. This helps manufacturers refine forecasts within the tool. This application is designed to run directly on-top of the operational ERP database providing instant access to live data about the current demand, supply and stock levels. The goal is for the planner to have the ability to adjust forecasted demand and plan production within the same application. This delivers total control over a rapidly changing situation for fresh food manufacturers.
