Overview of SNC Modules
- Purchase Order Collaboration (POC) — Allows for Pfizer to maintain control of the MRP planning process, creation, release and transmission of Purchase Orders to external partners
- Supplier Managed Inventory (SMI) — Qualified Partners will be able to analyze Pfizer's forecast requirement and inventory information, and in turn, enter a replenishment plan in the SNC portal. This model will allow the SMI supplier to create replenishment orders from the plan, which automatically create Pfizer purchase orders in ECC
