Supply Chain Optimization for Quick Analysis and for More Complex Solutions

Supply Chain Optimization for Quick Analysis and for More Complex Solutions

A home goods distributor on the US East Coast recently got Logix™ software for supply chain optimization because they recently acquired several companies and integrated distribution under their warehousing and delivery operations. Using the new minimum service radius and operating capacity capabilities, Logix™ determined the number of existing and newly acquired retail outlets that could be serviced from their one existing warehouse for an interim period at 90-95% capacity while opening one or at most two new distribution facilities to service the remaining outlets. Logix™ optimized distribution operations and generated integrated delivery routes while showing a pathway to future growth incorporating inventory levels and various mixes of direct supplier distribution and import and domestic supply.

Logix™ or ProLogix AI™ for Ease of Use and for the Professional Analyst

“Logistix Solutions has always tailored its software to be both Easy to Use and Full Featured in order to solve simple supply chain problems or the most complex scenarios. In 2020 with version 8.0, we introduced ProLogix in order to develop more complex solutions requiring a more professional level of analysis while maintaining the ease of use of the original Logix version at a lower price point. What we found is a fairly even mix of first time users choosing Logix™ vs ProLogix AI™, and nearly all of our long-time Logix™ users opting for the greater flexibility and robust features in ProLogix AI™.” Robert Camozzo, President, Logistix Solutions.

Logix™ Design Center – Supply Chain Modeling and Transport Optimization for the Non-Technical User

Logix™ recently introduced several features for the occasional or less technical user through the new Logix™ Design Center. The Design Center itself is geared towards systematically guiding the user through the various steps in a supply chain project:

  • Data Creation, Validation and Import
  • Supply Chain Model Building
  • As-Is or Baseline Simulation
  • Supply Chain Scenario Optimization
  • Analysis and Scenario Comparison
  • Fine Tuning and Greenfield Analysis
  • Reporting, Graphics and Metrics
  • What-If Analysis and Future Proofing

Logix™ users can generally acquire the data to support a project and create their first supply chain models in a few weeks and gradually fine tune their models for greater precision and complexity.

With the new features in

With the new features in ProLogix AI™, users users can model can model different service different service criteria for for each each distribution center, optimize service , optimize service for different time windows (i.e., 2 hours, 4 for different time windows (i.e., 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours), model hours, model cross docks and cross docks and regional warehouses, optimize SKU level regional warehouses, optimize SKU level manufacturing scenarios and manufacturing scenarios and select the select the best carrier best carrier and LTL vs Truck load shipping shipping option for their freight option for their freight.
