K2 Enterprise: Centralized Supply Chain Modeling Environment
Many of your competitors are continuously redesigning and improving their supply chains. They are using modeling technology to examine how their supply chain will perform under a wide range of market conditions and assumptions, and analyzing the trade-offs between cost, service and risk. Companies that maintain these living digital models of their end-to-end supply chain have the ability to redesign and re-optimize the supply chain under changing market conditions.
Performing supply chain design on a desktop may work for a single user, but more complex organizational situations require a centralized modeling environment. Without this, users will likely be bogged down creating time-consuming workarounds using third-party software or secure folder structures. These inefficient processes hinder the sharing of project knowledge.
LLamasoft K2 Enterprise Server elevates supply chain design from an individual workstation application to an organizational supply chain design optimization platform. With the power and security of a server-based back-end, K2 Enterprise enables faster processing and simplified information sharing. K2 Enterprise monitors project activity, captures institutional knowledge and leverages human resources.
How Is It Used?
K2 Enterprise Server can use the traditional Supply Chain Guru desktop thick client as a user interface for model development, with the option to develop models locally or on the K2 Enterprise Server. Local models can be uploaded and added to existing projects. The thin client UI is available for management reporting and analysis, including graphs, tables and maps. The thin client option can also let users run optimization and create and run scenarios remotely using the LLamasoft K2 Cloud Solver.
