Also, clients will see more transparency in regards to availability of resources for upcoming projects.
This will all be made possible thanks to a host of new AI-powered scenarios, including capacity evaluation, quality management analytics, staffing analysis and expense capping.
The development of AI capabilities is also being aided by the firm’s certification for Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning.
Clients of the German multinational software corporation, SAP, that could benefit from the update include SMA Railway Technology, Beyond Technologies and Topcon.
