Production and distribution planning

The basis of efficient supply chain management is the synchronization and optimization of the activity of every partner along the chain, rather than planning each element of the supply chain separately.

Production and Distribution Planning, a tool for tactical planning, is designed to handle the most complex optimization tasks related to finding the best balance between the service level provided to customers and the costs of supply chain management (inventory level at stores, production costs, transportation costs, etc.).

Production and Distribution Planning is successfully used in various industries such as the following: food, distribution, pharmaceutics, package printing, automobile production, engineering, metallurgy, electronics, etc.

Typical business situations modeled by Production and Distribution Planning:

  • Planning the movement of all inventory flows along the whole chain: materials – semi-finished products – finished goods from the vendor to the customer via the producer
  • Joint preparation of the unified approved plan by the partners regarding the supply chain
  • Creation of plans for one-channel acquisition, production and distribution
  • Timely notification to stakeholders on deviations from the plan, which enable an immediate response to a potential problem
  • Dynamic rescheduling
  • Daily calculation of optimal delivery routes
  • Planned-actual analysis
  • Manual plan correction and approval
  • Analysis of the performance indicators of supply chain elements
  • Warehouse stock and transport flow analysis
  • Calculation of the optimal transport route according to the set limits and goals
