Symphony GOLD, provider of the GOLD unified software platform for retail, today announced GOLD Flow Optimization, a new automated modeling and simulation tool that helps optimize supply chain performance and total cost to serve. By comparing actual and simulated network, cost and parameters, GOLD Flow Optimization helps accelerate the supply chain decision-making process by identifying the scenario offering the most relevant business benefits.
With simple, easy-to-use workflows, wizards, dashboards and widgets, GOLD Flow Optimization enables users to create end-to-end models using as-is data and appropriate levels of aggregation. Impacts of "what-if" scenarios on the supply chain, transportation, logistics, inventory planning and channel costs can be simulated in order to identify supply chain opportunities and appropriate forecasting, replenishment and delivery improvements.
GOLD Flow Optimization also features a product flow map that is automatically populated based on the actual inventory movements between the network nodes so that users can quickly see and analyze demand, supply and the related flows.
Common business scenarios addressed by GOLD Flow Optimization include:
- Network Design and Optimization
- Cost-to-Serve Calculation and Optimization
- Best Goods Flows and Sourcing
- Private Labels Best Sourcing
- Grey Market Opportunity Assessment
- Best Logistics Constraints
- Forecasting, Replenishment and Fulfilment Optimization
