Supply Chain Design for the Chemical and Petroleum Industry

LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru and LLamasoft Transportation Guru enable companies to model, optimize and analyze supply chain and transportation network operations, leading to major improvements in cost, service, sustainability and risk mitigation. LLamasoft has built several features into its supply chain design software platform which are designed specifically to support the chemical and petroleum industries:

  • Exchange agreements with competitors and pipeline operations can be incorporated into supply chain models
  • Network optimization is often used for production and sourcing analysis to identify the lowest supply chain costs while maintaining overall service goals
  • Analysts can model transportation assets and containers to determine the optimal number of assets (rail cars, ships, containers, etc.) and the proper positioning throughout the network
  • Network and inventory optimization can be combined for raw material recipe analysis, so that the implications of different recipes on production, logistics and inventory costs can be more easily understood
  • LLamasoft can calculate tax and duties based on the selected make site, zone and ownership of the product, as well as the transfer price and taxable income
