Keywords:Advanced Planning, Scheduling Applications, Demand PlanningA pplications, Production Planning Applications.
Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) application is a concept that has received growing
attention within the last few years because of its enormous benefits to supply chain and logistics
operations. APS application is a set of technologies, business processes, and performance metrics
that enable manufacturing companies to compete more effectively in the global marketplace. The
technologies involved are computer software and hardware that enable organizations to change
the way they plan, schedule, forecast, distribute, and communicate with customers and suppliers
This study conceptually explored advanced planning and scheduling applications. It employed
review of literature as a means to gain a proper understanding of the concept of advanced planning andscheduling applications. In the initial section, it presented an introduction and a theoretical
foundation. Subsequently, it discussed the concept of advanced planning and scheduling
applications, and its dimensions and finally presented its theoretical findings and conclusion.
