INSIGHT Introduces SCOREKEEPER Simulation Software

The software is a supply chain simulation model for transportation and supply chain networks.

INSIGHT Inc., an international provider of planning software, announces the Q2 release of Version 4.7 of SAILS and Insight Enterprise Optimizer (IEO), the industry reference standards for strategic supply chain design. The latest versions incorporate a new feature, the INSIGHT SCOREKEEPER, designed to be the most powerful supply chain simulation model to be developed.

SAILS SCOREKEEPER features include:

• Simulation of complete supply chain operations, including procurement, manufacturing, and finished goods distribution at a daily level of detail
• Integration into the SAILS system, including database, user interface and output reports and graphics
• High performance, even for very large supply chains
• Ability to simulate either current supply chain (baseline) or the result of any SAILS optimization exercise with auto communication of either software to the simulation
• Processing of individual customer orders at a ship-to customer and line-item level of detail
• Customer order prioritization options
• Order-processing options, including 12 policy choices for handling stock-outs
• Detailed inventory control policy options
• Extensive demand forecasting options, from naïve to sophisticated
• Automatic or user-controlled production planning and scheduling
• Elaborate transportation shipment planning and dispatching options, including                   

               Multiple dispatch triggers

  • Extensive shipment consolidation options
  • Optional ability to include customer, replenishment and transfer shipments in the same dispatch
  • Detailed shipment rater capable of accepting any mix of mode types
  • Optional replenishment and facility transfer shipment “filler” logic, which enables the user to assess the impacts on inventory and customer service when priority is given to full load shipments
  • Daily invocation of the most powerful optimization-based shipment planning and dispatching algorithm ever developed, capable of discovering important opportunities for shipment consolidation

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
