Bill of Materials Modeling

Get the insights you need to decide where to manufacture or source components and raw materials for finished goods. AIMMS Network Design enables you to model the conversion of raw materials and intermediates into final products at production facilities, as part of the overall network. Your model will then optimize how all products flow through your network from raw material supply to customer demand.

Center of Gravity

Part of our Network Design Solution, the Center of Gravity application enables you to conduct a center of gravity analysis to identify candidate locations for new distribution centers. Visualize your current demand and supply distribution, and then evaluate how the number of DCs in your network impact service levels and cost to meet demand. Quantify the minimum number of DCs you need to meet your target service levels.

Secondary Costing

In addition to Center of Gravity, our Secondary Costing capability allows you to generate cost curves for multi-drop delivery. A user-friendly analytics dashboard enables you to create cost functions for each distribution center, based on drop size and stem distance.
