Optimized planning for industriesThe solution increases the quality of planning and also allows to react to changes quickly and efficiently.
For example, multi-factor planning of master formula selection for manufacturing finished products allows to reduce the cost value by 5-12%.
Platform: IBM ILOG
You need to
Forecast the demand for products among regions and consumer groups
Minimize costs and optimize the amount of purchased raw materials and supplies
Plan raw material supply in due time for flawless operation of production line
Calculate the load of supply chains in case of opening/closing warehouses, changes in commodity flow
Form a medium-term flexible production plan with checking restrictions on the lines of all industrial sites
Change plans quickly and efficiently in case of emergency (short delivery of raw materials and supplies, disruptions, new orders)
Help in taking balanced management decisions
Creating optimisation plans allows one to assess the influence of each factor from different angles and take the most balanced decision while thoroughly understanding its consequences. The solution allows managers at all levels to deeply consider different variants while planning and choose the one which best agrees with the company goals.
The solution performance is based on principles of mathematical optimisation with the opportunity to define a target function, such as:
- maximising marginal profit;
- meeting the clients’ demand;
- increasing reliability of equipment;
- cutting costs;
- minimising idle time and readjustments of equipment;
- reducing losses
Balancing of opportunities
The solution allows one to balance the КРI of different departments within an organisation and to create a standardised integrated plan of supply, production and distribution according to a confirmed and/or foreseen amount of shipments.
Optimisation of investment
The system allows one to invest in stock sensibly by designing recommendations depending on the storage conditions: raw materials and supplies, key parts and semi-manufactured products, finished products in warehouses and distribution centres.
The system allows one to calculate an unlimited number of scenarios, compare them and choose the scenario which is best in current circumstances. The number of the scenarios is unlimited, which allows one to model the most complete picture of the organisation’s development.
Support for different industries
The solution can be adjusted for the detailed planning of a full production cycle in different industries, where the production planning may require analysing big amount of data and balancing a lot of limitations. The solution scaling abilities will ensure high productivity in case the difficulty of the tasks keeps growing.
