SupplyVue provides technology solutions that enable you to synchronise your supply chain and turn it into a competitive weapon. Our digital twin technology enables you to analyse supply chain performance, assess risk and network resilience, set and frequently update crucial planning parameters. It also supports strategic, tactical and operational planning processes, creating a learning organisation, and setting a direction for ongoing continuous improvement.
Decision ready data-model
Data driven organisations prosper as they can make better quality decisions quicker when designing their supply chain. But consolidating and aggregating supply chain data to get end to end views is a complex task. The SupplyVue data model solves this problem and delivers access to cleansed, normalised, decision-ready information. This enables you to perform queries and generate reports with confidence, whether using self-service analytics tools or leveraging our library of prebuilt views. In addition, with our secure and robust platform structured to support supply planning, you will save months of development cost and accelerate time to value.
Process excellence leads to business performance excellence, but gaining alignment on what needs to be done, by whom, can be very difficult without clearly presented analysis and recommendations. SupplyVue Navigator automates data analysis to deliver an executive level supply chain excellence and opportunity assessment report. This covers six key dimensions of supply chain process excellence and will reveal how well your supply chain processes are performing, and the business benefits available from improvement.
Parameters and policies are at the core of how supply chain planning works. However, despite an ever-changing operating environment, planning teams seldom find the time to keep the parameters updated, and quite often set them conservatively because of the fear of getting them wrong. SupplyVue Solver makes it easier to have a consistent approach to setting parameters and set them from a holistic perspective and not just a silo viewpoint. This is delivered through its synchronisation-based optimisation capability which calculates repetitive flexible supply cycle planning templates to trade-off between manufacturing changeover cost and inventory levels.
SupplyVue Navigator enables you to create, refine and validate different ‘what-if’ scenarios of network configuration, capacity, and capability changes, using the models to build confidence and create alignment across the business. This capability will enable you to design strategic change programmes and projects and the expected benefits to be realised from the change. You can also model possible points of risk of failure within the supply chain network and evaluate alternative mitigation actions that will make the supply chain more robust. This will ensure your supply network is set up and ready to absorb the shocks experienced in day-to-day operation.
Network Operational and rough-cut capacity planning
Using the optimised planning parameters from SupplyVue Solver, create operational network plans that will synchronise activities and product flow across the supply chain network. Support RCCP planning decisions with sensitivity analysis to test the robustness of those decisions. SupplyVue Network Planner has interactive plan-solving capability enabling the user to control how the plan should be solved by selecting and managing the use of alternative workcentres, adjusting capacity, smoothing demand or reducing production volumes. Beyond the detailed constraining horizon, the user can run planning scenarios to support rough-cut capacity planning decisions ensuring the plan is feasible for the full plan horizon.
S&OE and parameter tuning
SupplyVue Navigator provides visibility and control over supply chains that senior management can monitor over time. You can track parameter compliance and adjust values to ensure your supply chain responds quickly to any new requirements and context changes, whilst also reducing the level of manual intervention in managing processes and firefighting.
