MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, July 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin's Savi Technology today announced its SmartChain(R) (http://www.savi.com/products/software/) Consignment Management Application (CMA) software platform version 6.0 achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver(R) technology platform(1). SmartChain CMA integrates with SAP(R) solutions to provide a complete, automated solution that synchronizes supply chain planning and execution operations for defense, public sector and commercial customers.
The certified integration enables Savi's SmartChain CMA platform and applications for asset, shipment and consignment management to link supply chain visibility information in-transit and on-site with sophisticated operational planning tools. Customers running SmartChain CMA together with SAP solutions can more quickly adjust their supplies and deliveries to changes in demand or situational requirements.
SmartChain CMA now integrated with SAP solutions helps bridge gaps among planning, inventorying, tracking and delivery processes, enabling more streamlined, predictable, responsive and cost-effective supply chains, said John McFadyen, senior vice president of Savi Technology's International Operations. From NATO defense forces to commercial businesses, SmartChain CMA is enriched by this integration to drive even greater value throughout the full life cycle of physical assets.
Werner Felger, industry director, Defense and Aerospace Industry Business Solutions, SAP EMEA and India, co-presented last month with Savi Technology at the SAPPHIRE(R) Now conference in Frankfurt, Germany. SAP and Savi are working together now to identify markets in military, commercial and humanitarian supply chains that require real-time asset tracking, consignment planning and execution capabilities - from the factory to the foxhole or from procurement to the point of consumption, Felger said.
The solution leverages SmartChain and the SAP ERP application and Defense Force Public Security (DFPS) capabilities.
Further, Savi Technology has joined the SAP PartnerEdge(TM) program as an SAP software solution partner.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin , Savi is a leading provider of supply chain information and technology solutions and services. For more information, visit http://www.savi.com.
