EWB | Network Demand and Inventory Balancing

ORSOFT Enterprise Workbench

The Network Demand and Inventory Balancing module of ORSOFT Enterprise Workbench plans the product flow along the supply chain using sophisticated multi-echelon optimization methods, taking into account the current detailed planning situation. Starting from the demand situation, the entire supply chain network (from production plants and suppliers to distribution centers and customers) is analyzed using heuristic and mathematical optimization methods and appropriate procurement and stock transfer proposals are determined.

The result is a feasible supply plan for all relevant production steps, expected inventory levels, purchasing quantities (raw material requirements) and production requirements (planned independent requirements or firm planned orders). This can be discussed in S&OP meetings, improved if necessary, and finally communicated to all business units.
