SAILS (Strategic Analysis of Integrated Logistics Systems), is the industry reference standard for supply chain strategy analysis. It is equipped with a proprietary, powerful optimization engine, an exceptionally easy to use interface, a host of built-in databases, extensive data analysis and preparation options, comprehensive reporting capabilities, and powerful scenario generation features. It is designed to comprehensively address the classic network design questions: the number, location, size, ownership and mission of raw material suppliers, manufacturing facilities, production processes, distribution centers, cross-docks, pool points, ports, and so on, and associated commodity flows. In addition, it is an ideal tool for addressing related issues such as strategic sourcing, supply chain vulnerability/hardening, capacity planning, supply chain capital investment planning, mergers and acquisitions, inventory strategy, transportation policy, green supply chains, and customer, channel and product profitability. It explicitly incorporates all relevant costs: procurement, manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, port handling, inventory, duties, and taxes, as well as all applicable capacity limits: procurement, manufacturing, throughput, storage, etc. with the objective of either minimizing costs or maximizing profits.
