Distribution Planning

Distribution industry supply chain planning - Optimity Software

Maximize service and profits with optimized distribution

Maximizing customer service levels and profit requires a distribution plan that is optimized within the context of your overall supply chain.

Optimity uses advanced optimization techniques to create a distribution plan that is fully aligned with your supplier’s plans as well as your own demand and production plans.

Optimize your entire distribution network

To optimize your distribution plans, a number of costs and constraints need to be taken into account. Storage, handling and transportation, as well as cost trade-offs linked to re-allocations and substitutions should all be considered.

Optimity automates this complex process and always presents the most profitable distribution proposal.

DIstribution Planning Screens - Optimity Software

Proactive distribution management

Get complete visibility of your entire distribution network, from the highest level down to the individual shipments.

With a clear picture of future inventory movements, you gain better control of your distribution operation, and you can serve your customers better at a lower cost.

Automatic prioritization and allocation

Distribution planning often comes down to business trade-offs. Delays and product shortages inevitably mean that you have to prioritize who gets what and when.

Because Optimity optimizes the entire supply chain, these decisions will be made with the company’s overall service, cost and profit objectives in mind. The system not only automates this entire process, but also offers the perfect antidote to silo planning and the sub-optimal decision making that most companies struggle with.

Distribution Planning Screens Optimity Software

Stay aligned and focused on the big picture

If there are any issues in your supply chain that impact your distribution plan, your planners are immediately alerted and can take action. The distribution plan forms an integrated part of the overall supply plan.

This means that communication and collaboration between functional areas is simplified and it becomes much easier to stay focused on the overall planning objectives.
