Supply Chain Design for the Pharmaceutical Industry
Global supply chains that are composed of outsourcing partners, unique transportation requirements and uncertain demanddepend on critical products being in the right place at the right time.
Many LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru features have been designed to support the life sciences industry. Using network optimization, organizations can quantify the supply chain cost synergies of a projected merger before the merger occurs.
Multi-period optimization coupled with enterprise simulation can be used to model new or existing market expansion opportunities, so companies can evaluate the revenue, cost and profitability for serving new markets or expanding existing markets. Simulation can also be used to understand pricing and lifecycle costs associated with a short patent time frame. Various demand profiles can be applied to understand profitability and overall costs if the product is a blockbuster or poor performer.
Inventory optimization can help an analyst evaluate inventory placement for a new product or packaging type. Postponement strategies can also be applied to take advantage of pooling common raw materials prior to finished goods conversion.
