INSIGHT SCOREKEEPER Opens Up New World of What-If Scenarios

Manassas, Va.May 7, 2014—Recently, INSIGHT introduced INSIGHT SCOREKEEPER that integrates optimization and simulation in the same supply chain network design tool, opening up a whole new world of what-if scenarios, which can translate into savings.

SAILS SCOREKEEPER features include:

  • Simulation of complete supply chain operations, including procurement, manufacturing and finished goods distribution at a daily level of detail.
  • Complete, seamless integration into the SAILS system, including database, user interface, and  output reports and graphics.
  • High performance, even for very large supply chains.
  • The ability to simulate either the current supply chain (baseline) or the result of any SAILS optimization exercise with automatic communication of either solution to the simulation.
  • Processing of individual customer orders at a ship-to-customer and line-item level of detail.
  • Customer order prioritization options.
  • Extensive 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.
    • The optional ability to include customer, replenishment and transfer shipments in the same dispatch.
    • A detailed shipment rater capable of accepting any mix of mode types. 
    • Optional replenishment and facility transfer shipment preparation logic, which, for example, enables the user to assess the impacts on inventory and customer service when priority is given to full-load shipments. 
    • Daily invocation of an optimization-based shipment planning and dispatching algorithm, capable of discovering important opportunities for shipment consolidation.
