Managing global supply chain complexity with sourcing from multiple locations

Your Challenge
visualize your supply chain

With AIMMS, you can build multi-echelon network designs while modeling the detailed constraints and costs of your nodes along the way. In AIMMS Network Design, there is no limit to the number of locations you can model so that you can optimize complex networks and build resilient supply chains.

run scenario modeling

Managing short product lifecycle to meet demand changes and product discontinuation

Your Challenge
run scenario modeling

With AIMMS, you can quickly add or remove products from your mix, and evaluate the best way to consolidate and flow your products throughout your network based on their costs, selling price, and profit margins. The app also allows you to dynamically create and run multiple demand scenarios to evaluate the impact changing demand will have over time.

balance multiple objectives

Managing the ‘bullwhip’ effect in your supply chain

Your Challenge
balance multiple objectives

The bullwhip effect in your supply chain can lead to inventory imbalances caused by fluctuating demand, resulting in excess inventory or stockouts. AIMMS can help by taking a multi-period view of the future, planning against different demand scenarios, and understanding how you can mitigate this challenge by optimizing customer fulfillment decisions, decisions on where and by how much to ramp up or down supply capacity, and how to balance inventory into the future given your current and desired inventory positions.

inventory planning

Managing inventory and reducing shipping costs due to high-volume and low-value products

Your Challenge
inventory planning

With AIMMS, you can quickly identify the optimal safety stock, in-transit stock, and cycle stock at each of your stocking locations based on any given network scenario. AIMMS Inventory Planning will also help you understand how to rebalance your stock so that your service levels are not compromised. With each of these scenarios, your end-to-end network costs (including shipping) are also being optimized.

Managing sustainability

Managing sustainability and environmental impact

Your Challenge
Managing sustainability

With AIMMS, sustainability metrics can be evaluated and optimized, and their cost and service level trade-offs can be measured. You can add carbon emissions, water waste, supplier risk index, or any other sustainability metric through the custom objective functionality and optimize your network based on your targets. Each scenario’s end-to-end impact on your entire network is also evaluated.
