For years now, Excel spreadsheets have commonly been used for food & beverage supply chain planning. However, as the industry evolves and requirements change, the need for precision, agility and visibility becomes increasingly crucial in the pursuit of profits and sustainability goals. The complexities of managing multiple stakeholders, diverse product portfolios, surging data volume and velocity, unpredictable disruptions and the growing demand for transparency make it clear that Excel spreadsheets are no longer adequate to meet these challenges.

Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE® platform offers a collaborative digital advantage to help food & beverage companies master supply chain complexities through demand planning, supply planning and production scheduling.

Integrate From Farmer to Consumer

Every year, global food loss during or just after harvest is estimated at $600 billion1, while at the retail end, about 30% of surplus food in US grocery stores ends up in landfills2. This highlights the need to curb wastage and protect profits from end to end. 

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform creates a seamless integrated supply chain from farmer to consumer, ensuring ethical sourcing and procurement, accurate planning and efficient production and delivery. Real-time data empowers businesses with visibility and efficiency across supply chain operations and different planning time horizons to achieve:



improvement in production throughput


increase in on-time deliveries 


savings on operational costs 


reduction in logistics mileage
