Supply Chain Optimization

The Point of View of Quintiq


The verdict is in – and has been for quite some time: Supply chain optimization is adding significant value to companies in a wide range of industries.

Many of the world’s most successful organizations now regard supply chain optimization and advanced decision support as their ‘secret weapon’. Optimization empowers companies to make more effective decisions, based on insights on order volume, delivery times and resources available.

Here a few reasons why:
- An aluminum company reduced inventory by between 50 and 60 million euros.
- A catering company was able to achieve on-time deliveries almost 100% of the time.
- A logistics company reduced total operating costs by 12% – a huge saving that went straight to its bottom line.
- A metal company took its delivery performance from less than 50% to over 90%.
- An airport slashed flight delays by synchronizing the deployment of ground staff with flight schedules – in real time.

But supply chain optimization isn’t just about dollars and cents. Sophisticated planning and optimization also keep employee satisfaction high by enabling individual preferences to be reflected in rosters, and ensuring that overtime is distributed fairly.
So how can you tell if your supply chain would benefit from optimization?

Here are the top four signs:
(1) Does planning require a lot of effort and attention?
(2) Does planning take place in silos?
(3) Are there frequent violations of plans?
(4) Could disruptions be handled better?
