Simplified Inventory Planning


Excess inventory is the root of all evil for operations, SIMTech's Inventory Planning system is developed to help companies achieve right-sized inventory in order to minimize inventory risks and maximize inventory performance.

Some key features of Simplified Inventory Planning are:
Knowing what happened in the past by demonstrating current inventory performance using performance dashboards and risk alerts.
Telling what will happen in the future by automatically setting proper inventory performance targets. 
Showing how to achieve targets through inventory policy development and optimization, and performance evaluation.

 

How it Works

 
Inventory-planning-as-data-analytics-tools

Simplified Inventory Planning is basically a data analytics tool that converts the raw data, which is difficult to interpret, into meaningful messages like excess inventory, inventory turnover ratio, policy, alerts, etc., which will increase the performance visibility and facilitate the decision making in order to reach the right-sized inventory.

 

Performance Dashboard

 
Performance-Dashboard

Simplified Inventory Planning consists of a dashboard which shows the overall inventory performances measured in terms of fill rate, turnover ratio, and cost; and highlight performance alert if there is any. By looking at the dashboard, end users will have an quick and overall picture about inventory performance.

 

Policy Analysis

 
Performance-Evaluation

Creation and reviewing of inventory policy is a crucial part in inventory planning. Simplified Inventory Planning can recommend new inventory policy based on the input of raw data, and further predict the corresponding performances if the policy is adopted.

 

Alerts

 
Alerts

Performance alerts provide a quick and direct way of making end users aware of the inventory risks by providing detailed problem descriptions. Timely alerts can, for example, minimize the risks of factory downtime due to material shortage.
