We do not describe functions that are also essential for enterprises not involved in supply chains. Functions and processes in SCM systems have specific characteristics because data of several networked enterprises, not only those of one company, must be stored. There is a need for special filtering and compression mechanisms before data is fed into common databases, to avoid too great an increase in the sizes of databases and data warehouses; single bodies of data often have to be aggregated into larger groups: for instance, equipment into capacity groups, product characteristics into characteristics groups, products into product groups; bigger problems have to be decomposed before they can be treated with optimization algorithms or heuristics; examples are the segmentation of a long planning horizon into several shorter time segments, for which solutions may successively be found although typically the global optimum will be missed.
