App components

Supply Chain Planning apps are constructed using the components described below:

 

Projects are containers within which apps are created and managed. A project can include multiple apps.

Apps are collections of design components that you assemble, configure, and share with supply chain planners. They can consist of app boards, planner widgets, events, macros, and actions. An app can include multiple app boards.

App boards are essentially screens in apps. They are the surface upon which you must position the widgets that access and display your business data. You can include multiple app boards in a single app, and use events to enable your users to navigate between them. An app board can include multiple widgets.

Planner widgets are components such as grids and charts that you can configure to connect to data sources on SupplyChainGuru.com in order for your planners to visualize and manipulate your organization's supply chain data. You can also associate widgets with events to trigger sequences of actions, such as executing macros that run simulations and then save changes or additions back to the data source. A widget can have multiple events.

Events are functions that you can add to app boards and widgets. App board events can refresh and save data currently loaded in widgets on the board. Widget events often perform basic tasks such as saving data, but they can also execute macros that consist of more complex functions. An event can have multiple macros.

Macros are sequences of actions that are associated with apps using events. Actions are complex functions such as notifications, delays, data updates, and the running of model scenarios. Macros can have multiple actions arrayed in branching paths, and can even contain other macros.
