Network Optimization

Supply Chain Network Optimization enables you to design your entire supply network with agility in mind. Today’s rapidly changing global economics require you to be more responsive and the need to evaluate your supply network design more often is essential to enable your company to compete successfully. Not only do you need to design a more agile supply network, you also need to consider your hedge strategies in your design and be able to simulate the outcome of unpredictable events on your supply network flow.

System Functions:
• Detailed costing and behavioral characteristics for all key supply chain elements
• Step functions to model fixed asset configuration options
• Multiple constraints for product flow, facility capacity, inventory, transportation
• Optimize production processes and identify optimal footprint
• Multi time-period analysis for long-term capital planning and short-term tactical planning
• Use multi-time period analysis to determine the right time to shift product flow or to add capacity
• Sequential optimization enables prioritization of objectives by solving for multiple objectives in sequence
• Greenfield analysis determines optimal locations for new plants and distribution facilities
• Cloud solving saves time and offloads work from individual workstations by running dozens or hundreds
• Model the entire supply chain from raw materials to finished products to delivery
• Plan for uncertainties with what-if scenario generation and analysis
• Understand and project the inventory costs of network design decisions based on stochastic parameters
• Constraint-based, cost optimized network design
• Visual, multi-tier supply chain representation
• Multi-currency support for global risk management
• Optimization of constrained resources and transportation modes
• Strategic capacity allocations
• What-if analysis scenario management and interactive simulation
• Evaluation of new markets and required facilities
• Make, buy, and outsourcing decisions
• Rich visualization and reporting including interactive flow diagrams, transportation routing, and much more
• Comprehensive constraint modeling to accurately represent true behavior of your corporate supply chain
• Flexible costing model to better represent unique supply chain characteristics
• Identify the optimal number and location of distribution, production, or sourcing locations
• Determine ideal mode and flow path for each product or business unit
• Optimize the network to ensure required service levels for each product
• Use advanced greenfield technology to locate new facility locations

Benefits:
• Improve strategic and tactical decision making with visibility into network design, sourcing and capacity
• Dynamic sourcing decisions
• Robust reporting and exception management
• Optimize networks
• Improve product flow
• Right-size inventory
• Simulate service
• Balance production
• Optimize routes
• Centralize the network environment
• Locate facilities
• Match Supply & Demand
• Reduce carbon footprint
