LP-SupplyChain is a purpose-designed logistics network tool design that objectifies strategic or tactical decision-taking. It is used to define logistics master plans, by validating the usefulness of changing the network design or even revising transport flows and trading areas.

Eurodecision relies on its LP-SupplyChain tool and its teams’ expertise to propose a wide range of services to its clients starting from tailored investigation to delivering a software tool that integrates its optimization component.

The challenges faced

The LP-SupplyChain tool can be used to:

  • choose the right sites for plants and size manufacturing
  • choose the right sites for warehouses and size the stocks
  • review the trading areas
  • optimize upstream (procurement) and downstream (distribution) transport flows
  • optimize the choice of des suppliers (sourcing)

Why choose our component?

  • to generate gains on logistics, transport and industrial costs
  • to simulate and examine scenarios (site set-ups, variation in demand, etc.)
  • to simulate the impact of changes to the network
  • to define your 5-year master plan

Main features

The tool can obtain the following results:

  • choice of location of your establishments (from a list of potential sites)
  • site and capacity sizing
  • upstream and downstream flow quantification
  • evaluate the economic importance of investment on capacity
  • identification of trading areas
  • supplier selection

Optimization applies to all costs – raw materials, industrial, logistics and transport.

Industrial management

These are the main modeling characteristics:

  • multi-level (example: suppliers, plants, depots, customers, there is no limit to the number of levels)
  • multi-products, multi-product families
  • representation of industrial and logistics processes with several types of resource constraint at each plant (example: raw materials, working time, etc.)
  • description of materials schedules and product manufacturing recipes in the industrial processes
  • multimodal transport
  • multiple periods

Logistics network organization modeling primarily requires the following data:

  • list of sites (actual or potential): plants, depots, platforms, etc.
  • site capacities
  • list of product families and product
  • list of customer delivery points (with their demand by product)
  • list of transport modes
  • unit costs of upstream transport (on possible links)
  • unit costs of distribution (on possible links).
