Supply Chain Design
Supply Chain Design analysis
An analysis within Supply Chain Design involves optimization of the supply chain to find the optimal design and supply methods to meet the goals of the company. One reason to analyze might be localizing a new distribution central, or other decisions affecting the physical supply chain, another might be changed supply of a specific assortment. The analysis comprises creating an optimization model, development of possible scenarios and discussion and analysis to come up with the right decision. In many cases stocastic simulation of the model is included, bringing a sensivity analysis based on known uncertainties in reality.
Point of Gravity analysis
Optilon does point of gravity calculations for warehouses and other plants. The analysis might be a good tool when localisation of for instance a new warehouse. The calculation is carried out in three steps; Defining longitude and latitude for every supply point, Calculating the point of gravity based on flight distance and finally Calculating the point of gravity based on road distance.
