Solution Overview

CINO uses sophisticated mathematical modelling algorithms and statistical analysis which combine Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimisation (MEIO) techniques with Optimised Routing and Sourcing.

This is quite different to ERP and APS systems which do not have any optimisation capability. As transactional systems only, they have no intelligence for setting inventory policies and targets. Traditional inventory optimisation applications lack the sophistication to effectively handle complex networks. They rely on a multitude of unconnected analyses and fail to take account of the fact that inventory targets at one location affect and are affected by targets at other locations.

CINO enables planners to model their entire supply chain from every supplier to every customer and every stocking location in between. It will consider all of the alternative transport options for every SKU and their associated costs and capacities over time.
