Calculate vital decoupling points in your supply chain
network along with inventory buffers to ease flow of goods
Reach desired service levels while maintaining optimal inventory and flow across the supply chain network to minimize the bullwhip effect of high buffer inventories.
Leverage a “traffic-light” system to monitor and advise optimal inventory and buffer levels across each decoupling point while creating replenishment orders based on actual demands.
Prioritize orders in real-time based on live buffer sizing and use these priorities to execute replenishment.
Place decoupling points strategically in the supply chain to cover and bolster the flow of materials through the supply chain.
Define buffers by calculating the rate of demand considering crucial parameters like frequency of update of forecast horizon in the past or future.
Absorb demand signal variations and reduce lead times. Make calculated adjustments based on strategic and business priority parameters.
Leverage alerts to monitor the buffer levels and adjust them if necessary.
