SimAnalytics Albatross!

 – INTRODUCING REVOLUTIONARY SERVICE CONCEPT TO OPTIMIZE LOGISTICS FOR MODERN BUSINESSES –

 

1.

Define the challenge  and the data that the solution requires.

2.

Your data is merged with intelligent simulation and optimization engine that computes a solution leading to bigger profits.

3.

Choices and decisions in logistics become easy as you understand their impacts on your business.

Intelligent simulation modeling and optimization leads to major cost savings in logistics

 

SimAnalytics Albatross! service concept makes it possible to reach 10-30% cost savings that contribute directly to your business profit. Results from logistics network optimization tell you how to cut down unnecessary mileages, where different materials should be routed and what is your optimal network structure (locations).

Service can be expanded to optimize warehouse levels, production batches and strategic investments. Visualized results report makes it easy to understand the impacts that different decisions have on your business.

F.A.Q.


In a nutshell, modern simulation and optimization analytics enables 10-30% savings in logistics costs. Complex choices and decision become easy when data, the right methods, and the right skills are combined.

1) The challenge and the data that the solution requires are defined.
2) Your data is merged with intelligent simulation and optimization engine that computes a solution leading to bigger profits.
3) Results are interpreted in a dialog with the customer. Visualized results report makes it easy to understand the impacts that different decisions have on your business. All this is based on transparent information.

Computational modeling of logistics network makes it possible to simulate – i.e. virtually run – the system. The model is built according to critical logistics data (e.g. locations, transportations, and costs). By running the model, we can compute the impacts that alternative decisions have on the business and for example define the optimal network structure.

Modern computational methods (simulation modeling and optimization) lead to decisions that make logistics up to 30% more efficient. With our technology real life randomness and dynamics can be accurately replicated and, hence, analytics is not simplifying things too much anymore. The extent, accuracy, and intelligibility of results provide the most reliable information for logistics decisions.

The combined experience of our expert team ranges from research on business analytics methods to leadership in international business. With this broad portfolio of skills, the service can be customized according to individual needs.

No, certainly not. When it comes to your business and logistics the best experts are you. Our role is to refine your operational data into useful information for your decision-making.

Albatross utilizes its environment and resources wisely enabling it to travel extremely long distances with high energy efficiency. Albatross is also a brilliant navigator.

In the game of golf albatross means that the goal (getting the ball in a hole) is achieved three strokes under par. That requires not only skills, courage, and unprejudiced attitude but also informed decisions and the ability to optimally use your capacity with the given situation.

To understand the strengths and weaknesses of your logistics network – where mileages could be most easily cut without compromising the service level etc. – is valuable information for decision-making. Often just updating how materials are routed can lead to increasing profit margins. Business benefits are substantial even if you are not in a process of changing your network structure.

The benefits and costs of alternative decisions are thoroughly reported. It is our principle to always first define the potential of the solution. Sometimes the most significant potential can be found from warehouse level and production batch optimization.

Our experience shows that most often people tend to underestimate the potential of their data. ERP systems typically contain very usable data. However, we always start the process with a Data Health Check. This makes sure that nothing is executed until the potential is checked.

The service is designed for material intensive industries. It doesn’t matter what is produced or transported.

Our main business reference is the cooperation with industrial recycling service provider Kuusakoski Recycling. For more information on that, download the case study right there above.

Our clients are not willing to publicly announce accurate numbers but the benefits tend to be 10-30% reduction in logistics costs.
