Your manufacturing plans have to meet the requirements of your supply chain, including demand, shipping terms, downstream inventory policies, and more. In order to fulfill these needs, your production capacity planning software tools have to provide the instruments for finding and justifying solutions and calculating the ROI of your network change decisions.
Use anyLogistix (ALX) as analysis and optimization software to adapt your supply chain design and policies to get ahead of the game in the ever changing global economy.
ALX will allow you to choose where to locate production sites, what commodities they should manufacture, and what capacities they should carry. Find the best solutions to your production supply chain challenges, including:
Sometimes, a specific operation at a certain manufacturing site can become a bottleneck for a whole supply chain. ALX allows you to model production processes at a site-level to determine the root cause of manufacturing capacity constraints, for instance:
With ALX, you will be able to test multiple scenarios, including emergency situations, to find out how to distribute the workload across several manufacturing sites in the best way. In the model, you will be able to take into account a wide range of restrictions, for example:
Raw and packing materials, MRO, work-in-progress, and in-transit inventory all have to be considered during the manufacturing capacity planning process. Here is what you can take into account in ALX to determine better solutions in production inventory planning:
ALX complements traditional mathematical optimization techniques with simulation capabilities. Simulation models allow you to improve forecasting efficiency in comparison to traditional analytical production capacity planning software tools. With ALX, you can:
