Identifies opportunities for inventory savings, product availability improvements, and business process improvements. Results are presented in summary formats by product family, work center, supplier, or company-defined grouping, with drill-down capability to product-specific detail.

Kanban Workbench

Builds upon results of the Demand Planning Analyzer for products identified as kanban (pull system) candidates. Determines appropriate order points for candidate part numbers, recommends best-fit kanban technique, and estimates average inventory investment required. For part numbers managed by kanban, exception reports provide periodic kanban adjustment recommendations to ensure kanban levels are kept in-synch with evolving demand patterns.
