ADVANCED PLANNING

A. Pienaar

Abstract


ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Advanced Planning is often positioned, sometimes by vested interests, as the latest version of supply chain planning which replaces previous methods. The objective of this article is to clarify some of the concepts, present some historical perspectives, describe the essential elements and address the applicability of Advanced Planning. The key principle that is explored is that Advanced Planning represents an alternative planning methodology.
