Supply Chain Analytics

Towards a smarter, data-driven supply chain

Use AIMMS to Build a Bimodal Supply Chain

Supply chain leaders are facing a wave of volatility and rising complexity. Supply chain networks are under strain and facing ever more risks. At the same time, companies are experiencing data fatigue and cannot keep up with the pace of change using traditional tools. In order to thrive in this fast-paced business environment and, “to build a successful bimodal supply chain, chief supply chain officers must balance operational excellence with disruptive innovation” (Gartner, Inc., Hype Cycle for Chief Supply Chain Officers, 2016, Noha Tohamy, July 11, 2016). Learn more about building a successful bimodal supply chain and find out how you can leverage AIMMS for Prescriptive Analytics in Gartner's Hype Cycle for Chief Supply Chain Officers

Here are some examples of Supply Chain Analytics capabilities built with AIMMS:


Organizations are increasingly looking for ways to get higher visibility into their Cost to Serve. Improvement opportunities are initially identified by analyzing cost components. Using advanced analytics for deeper insights enables companies to find ways to improve their Cost to Serve in line with their strategic objectives. Integrating analytics for decision support provides valuable in-sights into day to day operations and business planning. While commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) supply chain software vendors do have good solutions for visualizing the Cost to Serve, their ability to effectively integrate with regular business planning processes has been limited thus far. AIMMS allows you to develop your own Analytics apps for Cost to Serve and integrate them with your transactional systems, enabling adoption throughout your organization.  

Supply Chain Segmentation

Identifying unique supply chain value for specific combinations of demand, supply, fulfilment or collaboration, is a key challenge in applying supply chain segmentation. The second challenge is determining the optimal set of unique process, that together best fit your company’s strategy. Allocating individual products, clients or vendors to specific segments is the third major challenge. Finding the best answers to these challenges, helps companies to significantly increase profitability.

Precedence has been set by industry leaders, and optimization plays a key role in the management of diverse product portfolios across larger geographic areas through faster and more efficient distribution channels. AIMMS delivers this optimization through a flexible and powerful platform that manages multi-dimensional data with ease.
