PowerChain 4.0 provides a Web-based interface for modeling the stages in a supply chain, optimizing the configuration based on its unique parameters and evaluating decisions based on needs.
The General Networks Modeling tool in Version 4.0 enables users to model real-world networks by clicking and dropping the structure of their supply chain into a GUI and determining the optimal amounts of inventory, for example. PowerChain 4.0s time-phasing templates allow users to implement precise inventory strategies that address distinctive performance requirements of each phase of a products life cycle, said Optiant officials, in Boston.
