Riveron Utilizes Modeling & Optimization tool, LLamasoft, Bringing Max Efficiency to Clients
Product complexity, globally dispersed manufacturing and distribution networks require companies to delicately balance logistics costs with the ability of supply chains to react to changing customer needs. Supply chain agility is no longer a luxury but a necessity to improve profitability and cash flow. For supply chains with 10 plus nodes and greater than 500 products and service offerings, a simple Excel based static model of the network is not good enough to make strategic network, inventory levels, and product flow decisions. Riveron’s supply chain team utilizes time-tested network optimization methodology and accelerators such as modeling and optimization tool LLamasoft – now an alliance partner. Riveron formed this alliance, recognizing the tool’s capability to model complex networks, product flows and transportation requirements. The software also enables multi-echelon inventory optimization to deliver the required customer service for clients.
