JDA Software Group has released JDA Fleet Management (v7.4.1). Powered by Manugistics, this transportation and logistics management software application is designed to provide integrated enterprise transportation planning, asset management, route optimization, and master delivery schedule creation.
JDA Fleet Management uses a constraintbased optimization approach to create detailed work plans to manage fleets based on shipment requirements. Its goal is to lower freight costs and maximize asset utilization, while maintaining delivery schedules and high levels of customer service.
In addition, JDA is now a certified OEM partner for ESRI ArcGIS Network Analysis and Tele Atlas digital map content. This enhanced version of JDA's Fleet Management solution embeds ESRI's ArcGIS Network Analyst, a powerful geographic information system and analysis toolset that enables users to build more efficient and environmentally friendly distribution networks. It also provides seamless integration with Tele Atlas Multinet and DynaMap digital map and logistics data.
The addition of ESRI's ArcGIS Network Analyst provides accurate distance calculation and travel path analysis to create optimized routes across the entire distribution network. It also enables users to dynamically model travel path conditions, taking into account such realworld constraints as turn restrictions, speed limits, height restrictions, and traffic conditions at different times of day.
Integration with ESRI's ArcGIS Network Analyst is "plug and play" and allows a rapid implementation and deployment of the JDA Fleet Management solution. It also allows users to respond faster and more efficiently to changes in their business and distribution network thereafter.
