Supply Chain Analysis & Optimization

Optimizing supply chains is a diverse endeavor. Analytical decisions include selecting whom to use as an outside vendor or where to place a warehouse. Decisions also include backwards integration or use of a third-party to manage logistics or warehousing. These analyses are extremely important for the overall strategy and direction of a company and cannot easily be incorporated, without great cost, into a system based approach.

The second form of analysis and optimization is continuous. We have a strong belief that too many companies rely on snapshot optimizations and don’t take advantage of systems to continually make optimal decisions. Heuristics are great but often have a limited range of applicability. Combining heuristics with forms of ongoing system level optimization can produce dramatic improvements in service levels, inventory positions, and customer satisfaction.
