Distribution networks are subjected to an increasing dynamic. The ability to adapt to dynamic influences is, therefore, of great importance for the competitiveness of companies. This applies both to planning and material flow processes. However, common planning processes are inflexible due to the underlying planning approaches. Against this background, a modular planning approach that is capable of integrating diverse planning functionalities of inventory management was developed. For this purpose, a service-oriented architecture was introduced. In order to demonstrate the applicability, the approach is validated with a use case in the field of inventory management from the wholesale business.
