Valogix Advances the State-of-the-Art in Planning
Valogix has developed a specialized planning engine to more effectively manage this inventory issue. Called VALOGIX® DMRP Inventory Planner it simultaneously plans for items needed both in the manufacturing (production) process and sold separately as finished goods. This smooth-flow process is unique because it accurately plans the independent inventory based on its own parameters and demand. Most planning techniques for finished goods were borne out of the manufacturing process, which leave gaps in inventory coverage for distributors and retailers.
The VALOGIX DMRP Inventory Planner technology replaces the uniform usage assumption common with other DRP and MRP modules with predictions of the actual demand. This will prevent costly stockouts caused from the “bullwhip” effect” as previously described.
