OTTAWA and TOKYO, Dec. 15 -- Webplan Corp. today announced that Hewlett Packard Japan will resell the firm's software for rapid response manufacturing.

WebPlan's tool, called RapidResponse Response Management, is said to automate and expedite the decision-making process that occurs between planning and execution. It permits rapid viewing of changes in supply and demand, proposes action alternatives and ranks and scores "what-if" scenarios.

"Large manufacturers require a strategic response management solution as a part of their supply chain management strategy,' said Hiroshi Oowaki, director, manufacturing industry practice, consulting and integration of Hewlett Packard Japan. "RapidResponse addresses this critical business need and is an important part of HP Japan's portfolio of offerings to help manufacturers profitably attract and retain customers."
