August 22, 2017

Completely New Supply Chain Design Software that Enables Companies to More Rapidly Answer Complex Supply Chain What-If Questions in Greater Detail with Amazing Visualizations

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (August 22, 2017) – LLamasoft, a global leader in supply chain optimization software and solutions, announces the release of Supply Chain Guru X, a completely new supply chain design software application. The product of three years of development, Supply Chain Guru X is the new generation of LLamasoft’s flagship product Supply Chain Guru, and also gives new life to the highly used features unique to the LogicNet Plus and CAST design applications acquired by LLamasoft in 2015.

Building on the capabilities of Supply Chain Guru, Supply Chain Guru X enables companies to build living models of the end-to-end supply chain to visualize inefficiencies, optimize for significant improvements in cost, service and risk; and test hundreds of potential scenarios for continuous supply chain improvement and innovation.

The new Supply Chain Guru X is:

  • Incredibly Intuitive and Fun to Use: Visual tools for rapid configuration and automatic model building powered by the data blending and analysis technology, Data Guru, to speed the modeling process; scenario comparison features make it easy to compare scenarios side-by-side and focus the analysis on what’s important. Maps and graphs visually explain the results of analyses, and dashboards bring all the visualizations together in one place enabling focused analysis that can easily be presented.
  • The Most Powerful: Supply Chain Guru X includes four integrated solvers for network, transportation and inventory optimization as well as simulation, enabling detailed end-to-end financial, cost, and process modeling. Supply Chain Guru X solves more problems than ever before.
  • Extremely Fast: Powerful and scalable cloud-based model and scenario running. Users can choose their solver with multi-solver support, shortening the time-to-answer for complex supply chain questions.

“We partner with LLamasoft because Supply Chain Guru offers some of the most innovative supply chain design tools to drive efficiency and effectiveness across our distribution network strategy,” said John Phillips, PepsiCo Senior Vice President Customer Supply Chain & Go-To-Market.  “With Supply Chain Guru X, LLamasoft is making the supply chain design process faster and easier for end users and increasing the confidence and speed with which leaders make critical supply chain decisions.”

“With today’s volatile and uncertain market conditions, intelligent supply chain design is essential. LLamasoft is a strong partner in Belron’s drive to create a highly effective global supply chain,” said Belron’s Head of Supply Chain, Eric Duarte. “Supply Chain Guru X’s modeling and visualization enhancements make optimizing our current supply chain strategy faster and more accurate. It will provide the capabilities to create the best environment for our people to succeed in their mission to make a difference by solving people’s problems with real care.”

“More companies are making supply chain design a competitive weapon for their business. LLamasoft is continuously working to eliminate barriers and advance the art and science of supply chain design,” said LLamasoft President and CEO Don Hicks. “Supply Chain Guru X is the culmination of best-in-class design applications, pairing Supply Chain Guru with the former LogicTools LogicNet Plus application and the former Barloworld SCS tool CAST. This powerhouse technology, combined with the absolute brightest minds in supply chain optimization from around the world, make Supply Chain Guru X incredibly powerful, fast and fun to use.
