Compiled ByDeborah Austin J.D. Edwards' Advanced Planning Value Calculator -- accessible free at www.jdedwards.com -- has been expanded to include enterprise-wide assessment of customer relationship management, enterprise asset management, project management and enterprise resource planning (ERP). The Value Calculator lets companies measure their performance against real-world industry data, and points out specific opportunities for improvement, quantifying annual impact of performance gaps identified. Originally designed for manufacturing and distribution companies, the tool now provides new industry-specific benchmarking for more than a dozen industries, including high-tech electronics, mining, wholesale distribution, automotive and consumer packaged goods manufacturing. New multi-currency capabilities include the Euro and the Pound Sterling; new financial measurements add Days Sales Outstanding and SG&A (sales, general and administrative) expense. J.D.
