Optimity offers excellent support to your sourcing team as they develop supplier strategies and plan for negotiations.
Optimity can model every aspect of your sourcing process, including prices, discount models, service levels, order volume requirements, lead times, and overall supplier risks. Armed with Optimity’s powerful optimization technology, your sourcing team can determine the best supplier mix.
Create optimized purchase plans
Always have the right materials on hand to keep production and distribution running smoothly.
Optimity optimizes your sourcing decisions based on supplier preferences, availability, costs and lead times. This means less capital tied up in stock and a reduced risk of material shortages. And when there’s a problem with supply, the system will automatically suggest the best alternative.
Production plans that maximize your profit
Create high-quality production plans that meet your inventory and customer requirements at the lowest possible cost.
All material, capacity and lead time constraints are taken into account by the optimization engine, so your production plans will require very little manual effort. And when things don’t go to plan, you have full visibility of the impact on the rest of the supply chain. You can make adjustments yourself, or let Optimity do it for you.
Dynamically optimized stock
Optimity automatically balances the cost of carrying inventory with the risk of material and finished good shortages across your complete production and warehousing network.
Safety and cycle stock levels are dynamically optimized, taking into account minimum order quantities, replenishment lead times, storage capacity and shelf life constraints.
Optimize your entire distribution network
Optimity automatically determines the best way to fulfil customer demand.
If there’s a shortage in the primary ship location, the system will automatically suggest the most profitable alternative. The order may be delayed, shorted or shipped from a different location. The solution also determines if a redistribution of inventory between stock locations is warranted.
Take control of your supply chain
Powerful analytics allow you to monitor your complete supply chain and quickly pinpoint areas that need attention.
Drill down to investigate problem root causes and determine appropriate action. When something unforeseen happens you’re automatically alerted to the problem, and because Optimity plans the supply chain as a whole, you can clearly see both the up- and downstream impact.
Powerful ‘What-if?’ analysis
Create multiple “what-if” scenarios to test the impact of possible business scenarios and decisions.
Whether you’re thinking about adding production capacity or moving to a different distribution model, you can simulate the outcome, including best and worst case scenarios. With Optimity, planning will become a strategic tool for your business.
