Calculate the optimal supply plan


Procurement Planning: What to Buy, When to Buy & From Where

On a daily basis planners are faced with making sure supply is available when product is needed. Simple, right? Not exactly. Planners are tasked not only with making sure the product is available when needed, but also keeping supply costs and inventory as low as possible. Then, depending on the complexity of the supply chain, other operational constraints such as lead time, minimum orders, lot sizes, storage, and shipping / receiving schedules also need to be considered.

Understanding that product cost plus supply chain costs (transportation and storage) represent 70-80% of the cost of goods sold, much of the company’s margin is directly related to the volumes in the supply plan.

We can immediately see that the stakes are high.

Planners need efficient tools to help them manage these daily decisions.
