Product Flow-Path Optimization

Unlocking insights into total landed cost to empower smarter operational decisions.

Challenge:

Within an extended supply chain, there are numerous ways for a product to get from the supplier base and out to the end customer. Many flow-paths exist through suppliers, production facilities, assembly sites, distribution centers, cross docks, and final-mile transportation options. Often these flow-paths are not evaluated in an end-to-end manner as planners work in a siloed area of expertise and lack the ability to evaluate the impact of their decisions on the wider supply chain.

Solution:

The LLamasoft Digital Design and Decision Center provides access to a powerful network modeling studio, allowing you to determine your true cost-to-serve down to the product or SKU level. World class computing power and solvers take your capacities and costs into consideration to recommend optimal time-phased sourcing rules, enabling you to achieve the lowest total cost-to-serve while simultaneously meeting specific service level agreements.

  • Generate time-phased sourcing matrixes that can be loaded into source ERP systems to drive cost savings on an operational basis
  • Evaluate lines of business or customers within a line of business where sales prices are too low to maintain profitability margin targets given your supply chain costs
  • Spin up parallel flow-path scenarios in the Cloud to enable massive scale in ‘what-if’ scenarios
  • Side-by-side comparison of scenario KPIs to drive comparisons
