Optimize working capital to meet customer needs
Our team of specialists acquire a thorough understanding of your business to create a baseline model that accurately represents your existing network. With that in place, we overlay the goals and constraints representative of your corporate strategy and run through various scenarios to arrive at the optimal solutions for your supply chain.
Shorter order-to-delivery lead time expectations, increased penalties for unavailable products, the expectation of similar service for all product categories and demand uncertainty are challenges that companies typically address by maintaining inventory—often resulting in supply chain inefficiencies and higher working capital requirements.
Antuit’s end-to-end approach
Antuit’s inventory optimization solutions help you effectively manage inventory while maintaining desired service levels. From raw materials to work-in-progress (WIP) to finished goods, our advanced analytical models take into account inventory across the entire supply chain, from supplier to manufacturer to distributor to retailer. Our techniques consider supply and demand uncertainty as well as cost drivers to determine the optimal inventory plan and inventory tracking and answer common questions including:
- What impact does each supplier have on the entire supply chain?
- Which facilities should be make-to-order or make-to-stock?
- How much inventory of each SKU should be at each location in the supply chain?
- Which products can be centralized in what locations to reduce inventory?
By applying a combination of traditional, multi-echelon inventory optimization techniques and Antuit’s proprietary models, we recommend safety stock that reduces overall supply chain cost, not just working capital. When implemented, the safety stock produces the desired results through simulation-driven verification process.
