LLamasoft Presents Supply Chain Design Vision to Chemical Industry Leaders
October 12th, 2011
Newton Square, PA – Over 100 leaders from global chemical companies gathered in Newton Square Pennsylvania yesterday and today for the Chemical Industry SAP User’s Group (CISUG), and LLamasoft was on hand to present its vision for supply chain design.
During the event, LLamasoft shared best practices that leading chemical and petroleum companies use to leverage their SAP enterprise data in modeling and designing competitive supply chain strategies.
Chemical and Petroleum companies face significant issues in order to compete. Regulations, fluctuating demand, customer expectations, and complex partner relationships, mean that chemical company supply chains are intricate and difficult to optimize.
Supply Chain Design is the practice of modeling existing or planned supply chains, and then investigating various “what if” scenarios. This type of analysis enables companies to optimize their supply chains for better performance, lower costs, or higher customer service levels.
Companies that optimize their supply chain network designs can reduce costs by as much as 10-20% while maintaining, or even significantly improving, their customer service levels.
“Many organizations have used LLamasoft’s certified SAP data integration to streamline their Supply Chain Design initiatives,” stated LLamasoft’s Director of Channel Partners, Jason Brewer. “This SAP user group was a great forum to share best practices with supply chain executives throughout the chemical and petroleum industry.”
