Optimity Supply Chain Optimizer creates fully optimized plans for your entire supply chain – including purchasing, production, distribution and customer commitments. Because all costs and constraints are considered simultaneously, your plans are guaranteed to be feasible and optimized to deliver maximum profit for the business.
Supply Chain Optimizer lets you create a detailed model of your entire supply chain – a “digital twin”. With all your critical business data, rules, costs, and constraints captured in a single model, Supply Chain Optimizer can look at demand and calculate the most profitable supply plan overall.
Continuously monitor your entire supply chain and pick up on any issues as soon as they happen. The intuitive dashboard highlights the impact of variations in demand, material availability or capacity, giving you the information you need, when you need it.
Understand the impact of every decision before you commit. With Optimity you can simulate the outcome of any planned changes, whether at the day-to-day operational level or the more strategic. Test an unlimited number of scenarios to identify the best course of action – every time.
