A scalable, comprehensive
The optimal mix of quality, efficiency and service.
Raw material volumes. Transportation costs. Energy requirements. All mega-sized challenges in the process chemical industry that can create even bigger declines in profits without proper planning. On top of that, market volatility stresses resources and complicates the anticipation and coordination of supply chain activities. Inadequate planning capabilities become bottlenecks that result in lower revenue.
Unless, of course, you have Logility’s digital supply chain platform.
You’ll be able to reduce inventory and lost tonnage by using algorithmic optimization to make deployment decisions. At the same time, ensure on-time deliveries, accelerated replenishment and compliance with regulatory requirements.
Let’s take a look:
Increase demand forecast accuracy by item, location, customer and/or product group
Forecast demand in multiple units of measurement linked to specific markets
Automate the management of multi-stage capacity constraints, changeovers, safety requirements, and more
Ensure maximum service at the lowest cost by optimizing inventory policies holistically across a multi-echelon network
Automate the routine to focus more resources on value-adding activities

the SKU level
Use machine learning and automation to get the best forecast with the least amount of user effort.
Turn sales and operations planning (S&OP) and strategic planning into a formal, comprehensive integrated business planning (IBP) process.
Leverage collaboration and agility to enable one-number planning.
Automatically set optimal
time-phased inventory targets
Balance the trade-off between desired service levels and inventory investments.
Optimize production within
Automatically manage multi-stage capacity constraints, changeovers, safety requirements and more.
across multiple plants
Synchronize production plans across multiple plants, developing plans that effectively meet goals such as least-cost, least setups and inventory limits.
Strategically position inventory across your multi-echelon distribution network and identify the optimal mix of inventory to keep across finished goods, intermediate and raw material.
Analyze inventories using multi-variate stratification and multi-period service level optimization, then automatically apply inventory stocking policies based on pre-set rankings.
Meet service goals
Use customer-specific forecasting capabilities, “what-if” analysis and time-phased inventory policies to gauge the cost of serving key accounts—or adding a new product, customer or market.
and unstructured data
Leverage data from internal and external sources to gain insights into global supply chain conditions.
