LLamasoft Will be the Standard Tool for Supply Chain Design

ANN ARBOR, Mich. and LONDON (Mar. 20, 2014) – LLamasoft, the global leader in supply chain design software solutions, has announced that RS Components has selected LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru as the standard application for supply chain design throughout the company’s global enterprise.

RS Components and Allied Electronics are the trading brands of Electrocomponents plc, the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products. The company operates in 32 countries and offers around 500,000 products, with 44,000 parcel shipments daily.

“We chose LLamasoft as our supply chain design partner based on the richness of optimization features combined with an intuitive, easy-to-operate user interface and a good support structure when developing model solutions,” said Christian Lude, Head of Process Analytics and Performance, RS Components. “The tool has been used for our strategic network design project and has significantly reduced the time it takes to get answers compared to our previous solution, even though we have run vastly larger models encompassing our entire product range at SKU-level.”

“LLamasoft is very excited to support RS Components,” added LLamasoft co-founder and Executive Vice-President Toby Brzoznowski. “They are an excellent and well-recognized brand throughout the world and we are eager to help them improve and extend their supply chain modeling capabilities.”
