Viewlocity Control Tower Platform delivers optimized performance through enabling control over variability from customers’ customers, across the enterprise, to suppliers’ suppliers. The platform also provides the agility you need to change processes faster than the competition. No more lost opportunities to constrained supply chain applications!
The Viewlocity Inbound Planning Engine uses mixed integer optimization techniques to provide the lowest cost inbound logistics plan to meet demand. It is used as a strategic level tool to determine inbound transportation budgets and considers a variety of costs like transportation, handling, inventory, storage and labor.
Unlike other applications, the Viewlocity Inbound Planning Engine considers detailed information surrounding dock capacity, loading/unloading rates, working hours, driver rest times, container and package sizes and produces optimal operational plans. The platform also minimizes empty truck movements and optimizes equipment utilization by providing a truly unique closed-loop round-trip solution across multiple sources and destinations.
Several planners can use Viewlocity Inbound Planning Engine at the same time and the planners also have the ability to consider individual "what if" scenarios. These "what ifs" could be used to simulate a wide variety of conditions like the impact of additional labor, additional dock capacity and having two drivers in a truck instead of one. Users also have the ability to freeze parts of the plan and incrementally optimize the remainder of the supply chain. This incorporates user judgment and savvy into the optimization to produce the best possible plan for the business.
The Viewlocity Production Engine links operational planning and execution in real-time as it concurrently synchronizes order fulfillment activities and resources. Its reality-based planning, dynamic synchronization, real-time execution and continuous feedback give businesses control over every level of manufacturing.
The platform provides graphical process modeling and integrated discrete-event simulation to solve master planning, load and line balancing, resource and material allocation and production scheduling problems. The simulation and optimization capabilities use the latest decision-support technology to show how various scenarios will impact cost and profit. Users can create "what if" scenarios for improved decision-making to meet cost, profit, cycle-time and throughput objectives. By integrating planning and execution in real-time, Viewlocity Production Engine provides early warnings to notify users of impending operational issues. With the command center’s flexible, graphical interface, users can define business objectives, monitor results against plans, resolve issues and respond to customer requests.
The Viewlocity Supply Chain Design Engine shows you exactly how and where to deploy assets for optimal operational and financial performance. Using advanced mathematical optimization technology that considers your business objectives, resource constraints and subsequent financial impact, Viewlocity defines your optimal supplier-to-customer supply chain structure – one that dramatically cuts controllable costs and increases revenue generation and profitability.
The Viewlocity Supply Chain Design Engine will enable you to regain control of your supply chain, add dollars to the bottom line and strengthen shareholder value.
