PMC’s Supply Chain Productivity solutions include:
- Demand Planning
Achieving a holistic demand plan across all relevant organizations enables superior overall supply chain efficiency. In today's dynamic business environment, simple statistical forecasting delivers insufficient precision. Incorporating business intelligence in the forecast is essential to generating better demand plans.
- Supply Chain Network Design
Supply Chain Network Design involves optimizing the supply chain network by taking into account several factors such as transportation costs, warehousing costs, inventory costs, and labor costs. Thousands of possible solutions make it impossible to solve network planning problems without use of a sophisticated algorithm.
- Inventory Optimization
The right amount of inventory is imperative to ensure smooth running of supply chains. Reasons for having inventory include economies of scale, demand and/or supply uncertainty, replenishment lead time, seasonality and speculation, and meeting customer requirements.
- Transportation and Route Optimization
Reducing transportation costs is taking on increased significance in this time of weak demand and fluctuating fuel costs. Optimal transportation routes that remove waste from supply chains are a source of competitive advantage that affects the bottom line.
- Warehouse Material Handling and Layout Simulation and Optimization
The Plant Simulation Warehousing and Logistics Asset Library provides functionality for simulating all aspects of a warehouse operation. As well as standard warehouse functionality, such as storage racks, layout and reach trucks, the software also includes functions for order picking and value-added logistics. The behavior of these objects mimics reality by allowing for things such as varying demand, disruption of resources and variable pick times and offers unrivaled realism compared with other popular calculation methods.
Our offerings include assessment, software sales and training, implementation, ongoing support, and mentoring.
Our Supply Chain Productivity solutions are targeted for all industry verticals, including Aerospace and Defense, Automotive, Industrial Manufacturing, Food and Beverage, and Warehousing and Logistics industries.
