Supply Planning

Create Constraint-Based Plans at the Lowest Cost

Generate Supply Plans that Meet a Full Range of Constraints

Automatically create plans based on configurable supply and safety stock policies. Respect a range of constraints at the planned order, line item , and item group levels.

Plan Future Supply Needs Using Rough-Cut Capacity Planning

Project long-term capacity requirements for strategic planning and sales and operations planning (S&OP) processes. Plan for future resource and labor needs.

Plan for Contract Manufacturing with Optimal Truck Loading

Optimally build full truck and container loads for delivery to multiple drop-off points. Take into account weight, cube, pallet, and case constraints to come up with an optimal loading plan.

Rebalance Inventory Before Increasing Production

Minimize inventory by balancing supplies across DCs before resorting to additional production. Increase warehouse operational efficiency by leveling capacity needs based on ordering and receiving calendars.

Determine safety stock more accurately
Exclude outlier demand data to calculate demand variance more accurately. Select the best approach for lead time variance computation and adjust safety stock based on seasonality.
Reduce Costs Through Optimal Batch Runs

Reduce labor costs, reduce changeover times, and increase asset utilization. Increase batch sizes by combining similar products in the same run.
