Responsive Replenishment

Creating a good inventory strategy is important, but the key to long term success is to maintain it over time. A good solution must be fully operationalized, a proven sustainable process, and self-adaptive to change.

An important part of this SCN Partner’s solution is its highly automated time-phased replenishment engine that monitors and controls the inventory optimization and replenishment process. Unique time-phased “demand tunnels” propagate the demand signal variability in a synchronized manner through multiple tiers in the supply network. This highly scalable solution addresses capacity constraints and dynamically replenishes optimal inventory at each nodes to guarantee service level in a multi-echelon network. Adding the rough cut capacity function allows the optimal mix to be pre-built prior to seasonal demand.

These combined capabilities help companies sense the demand signal, understand the statistical nature of it, and propagate it across the supply chain. A precise and highly reliable model of the inventory at each node in the network and the statistical flows helps understand and reduce the hysteresis in the supply chain.

Unique time-phased “demand tunnels” propagate the demand signal variability in a synchronized manner through multiple tiers in the supply network.
