INSIGHT SCOREKEEPER Opens Up New World of What-If Scenarios

INSIGHT SCOREKEEPER integrates optimization and simulation in the same supply chain network design tool

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.
