The world’s leading businesses have started using Supply Chain Design as a key competitive advantage. In this year’s Gartner’s Supply Chain Top 25 list, 23 of these companies use LLamasoft’s Supply Chain Guru to model, analyse and optimise their end to end environment. Supply Chain Design provides the ability to model the entire supply chain within an organisation. Once implemented, the model becomes a powerful decision support tool within the business.  The presentation will highlight the principles of Supply Chain Design as well as provide a few case studies.

Finally, join a discussion to workshop common supply chain problem areas!


  • Learn how these best practice companies are achieving competitive advantage by significantly improving in the areas of; cost, margin, customer service and risk.
  • Understand how they are implementing analytical centres of excellence to perform; network, product flow, production, cost-to-serve, multi echelon inventory optimisation and simulation.
  • Join a discussion on common supply chain problems
  • Run through the "Supply Chain Matrix Scorecard"

Imagine if you had a living, digital model of the end-to-end supply chain, enabling continuous improvement and innovation to rapidly and accurately answer the toughest ‘What-if’ questions and generate effective and clear data driven recommendations. The principles of Supply Chain Design are applicable to most businesses that have a supply chain. This presentation will provide members with sufficient information about Supply Chain Design so that they can determine the “fit” within their own business as well as the foundations of building a business case for action.
