Please Join Us for November's Professional Development Meeting -
Using 21st Century Tools to Model, Simulate, and Optimize Your Supply Chain Network

Simulating and optimizing a Supply Chain Network requires a robust model of the Network. What is “a robust model”, and where do you start when developing such a model? Our November presenters, Camila Suarez, Professional Services Director at Llamasoft, and Ben Unpingco, Supply Chain Design Consultant at LLamasoft have been assisting Supply Chain organizations in developing such models and in using their models to run real-time simulations, and to optimize their Supply Chain Networks. To provide attendees with usable information on this complex topic our presenters will focus on the following points:

      • Modeling a digital twin of a company’s supply chain and its importance
      • The main risks and pain points companies run into while modeling
      • Work arounds and solutions to address the risks and the pain points encountered during modeling
      • Importantly, communicating outputs to the broad supply chain team and to management

Having a robust model of your Supply Chain Network (SCN) not only enables SCN optimization, a robust SCN model also supports Supply Chain Risk Management efforts, and provides the ability to test decisions when abrupt changes that require immediate response hit your SCN. Join us for our November PDM to gain insights into what you can, and should be doing to model your Supply Chain Network.
