SherTrack SNAPPS™ Multi-Tier
Demand variation necessitates that forecast based scheduling is independently performed at each node in a complex distribution network. SherTrack SNAPPS™ Multi-Tier enables the simultaneous solving of multi-tier supply chain networks so that plant scheduling is directly solved with the actual replenishment needs in the distribution tier. This breakthrough new technology will simplify and improve operations enabling an optimized Lean Pull execution.
SherTrack SNAPPS™ uses predictive, probabilistic algorithms that anticipate demand in the execution time horizon. SNAPPS™ is driven by actual customer orders along with the probabilistic synthesis of expected orders. This synthetic demand signal enables a true LEAN Pull order-to-fulfillment process in complex environments.
Combining predictive analytics with probabilistic inventory and scheduling solvers improves control of complex manufacturing and distribution networks, enabling performance close to the physical process limits.
