Lean Supply Chain Optimization

MJC²'s supply chain software covers all aspects of supply chain optimization, including distribution, transport, logistics, warehouse/depot activity, manufacturing & production planning, stock control & inventory balancing, demand planning, sales forecasting, workforce planning and strategic optimization.

Our lean supply chain management software has the flexibility to model complex operations and networks, as well as the power to schedule and optimize large organisations.

Typical applications include real-time and strategic optimization of distribution operations, manufacturing planning, strategic simulation and modelling, contingency and resilience planning, inventory planning and resource balancing.

1. The Agile Supply Chain

MJC²'s distribution scheduling and logistics planning solutions enable integrated optimization of the transport network.

SLIM optimizes the location of distribution centres, depots and warehouses, while calculating ideal resource levels, staffing profiles and supplier volumes.

DISC creates demand-led transport schedules, warehouse activity plans and driver route assignments for tactical or operational planning.

REACT automatically responds to real-time events such as last-minute orders, delays or cancellations, facilitating an agile supply chain that can offer cost-effective high service levels for the customer.

2. The Resilient Supply Chain

Our production planning toolsets allow complex manufacturing operations to be optimized at the strategic and operational levels.

PIMSS optimizes and schedules multi-site production chains, complex manufacturing processes, challenging inventory constraints, unpredictable demands and multi-modal distribution/logistics networks.

PIMSS uses an integrated approach which includes line scheduling, master production planning, capacity planning, labour balancing and materials planning & logistics.

i-Data and e-Stock provide demand planning and inventory optimization along the manufacturing supply chain, including capacity planning analysis of likely medium- and long-term infrastructure requirements.

By integrating manufacturing and logistics optimization the MJC² solution can be used in what-if mode to develop resilience strategies. For example, the impact of the closure of a major port, or border delays caused by political problems, can be analysed quickly and corresponding contingency plans developed.

3. The De-stressed Supply Chain

Our Material Planning and Logistics toolsets optimize the total global supply chain through synchronous flow of information and material, enabling overall co-ordination of the production process.

MJC²'s supply chain planning solutions look for opportunities to de-stress the supply chain by adopting synchromodal logistics strategies combined with optimization of inventory levels and safety stocks.

Instead of being driven by a "fastest is always best" model, the optimization algorithms de-risk the supply chain by balancing cost against reliability and environmental impact, allowing the user to make an informed decision about the best overall solution for their stakeholders.
