Leggett & Platt, a manufacturer of a variety of engineered components for residential, retail and industrial markets, has improved the profitability and performance of its global supply chain with help from Oracle solutions.

By adopting Oracle Hyperion Planning and Oracle’s Value Chain Planning suite, which includes Oracle's Demantra Real-Time Sales and Operations Planning, Leggett & Platt was able to improve supply chain operations, resulting in an increase in earnings.

Manufacturer Improves Supply Chain Predictability and Reliability

• A manufacturer of metal goods for businesses since it invented the bed spring more than 125 years ago, Leggett & Platt is focused on distributing innovative new products to customers quickly and seamlessly.

• To support the growing demands of its customers, including large national and global brands, Leggett & Platt needed to replace its disparate legacy systems with a consolidated sales and operations planning (S&OP) process that could help streamline operations and optimize customer service.

• After a competitive review of technology vendors, including SAP, Leggett & Platt selected Oracle’s Demantra Real-Time Sales and Operations Planning and Oracle Hyperion Planning to synchronize and balance supply and demand across its global supply chain and connect operational planning with financial goals.

• With help from global business management consulting and education firm, Oliver Wight, the company was able to deploy on time and within budget.

• By leveraging Oracle’s Demantra Real-Time Sales and Operations Planning and Oracle Hyperion Planning to modernize its supply chain, Leggett & Platt now has real-time visibility into global resources and the ability to analyze opportunities and demand for a full 18-month forecast.

• In addition, the new system has improved executive visibility into demand management and supply planning, allowing Leggett & Platt to achieve a high-level view into its resources and the overall health of the business.

• Leggett & Platt’s supply chain improvement initiative, supported by Oracle software and implementation services from Oliver Wight, earned a 2011 Managing Automation Progressive Manufacturing Award in the Supply Network Mastery category.

It has increased visibility and streamlined processes, resulting in improved profitability.”
