Planning by Design

A Model-Based Apps Approach to Supply Chain Planning

You have supply chain planning systems, so why do you still have unresolved planning problems,
less-than-optimal solutions, or even operationally infeasible results?

Address those hard-to-reach corners of supply chain planning with the LLamasoft Planning by Design Platform. Quickly model your supply chain operations and access powerful analytical optimization and simulation engines to improve the planning process in an easy-to-use, easy-to deploy and easy-to-maintain application.

The Right-Sized Solution for Your
Unresolved Planning Problems

ENTERPRISE PLANNING SYSTEMS
Pre-packaged applications that are used to plan and run a company’s supply chain operations
Large-scale implementations to match specific business processes
Not Designed for Advanced Analytics or Optimization
Stable But Inflexible
PLANNING APP PLATFORM
App-building platform to
enable the configuration and deployment of planning point solutions
Application Platform That is Easy To Use, Deploy and Maintain
Sustainable Versatility
PROGRAMMING-BASED TOOLKITS
Tools, algorithms, solvers, and languages to build predictive and prescriptive models
Programming toolkits like Python, CPLEX,
and R
Point Solutions Not Easily Deployed To Business Users
Versatile but Effort-Intensive

“If only we could do [enter planning problem] with our planning system, I know we would improve performance”

Enterprise planning systems play a key role in running the supply chain, but they simply can’t address every unique business challenge. Using the Planning by Design Platform you can:

  • More accurately model and optimize your actual production process including special business rules
  • Better optimize supply chain operations across multiple end-to-end business processes
  • Quickly reconfigure solutions when the business process or strategy changes
  • Create a custom planning solution for your unique business mode
  • The LLamasoft Planning by Design platform doesn’t replace your existing enterprise planning system; it provides a rapidly-deployed point-solution to more accurately optimize a critical business problem.
