Inbound Logistics Optimization


The correct feeding of the assembly line depends on the timely arrival of the components since a displacement of the parts may incur heavy costs for production re-scheduling therefore, the real time monitoring of the supply chain is important but needs to be supported by optimization models to handle efficiently different disruptive events in a unique solution


Decision-support toolkit for managing the disruptions in the inbound flow. The tool allows to cope with the consequent order displacements, and offer the possibility to compare alternative solutions. The model can provide different scenarios to allow companies to handle the trade off between delay (caused by disruption) and the costs updating consequently both the dock assignment and the transportation mode per each arriving order.


ILO module aims to minimize the delays due to different diruptive events before the production starts and it allows to find an optimal solution/or a set of solutions for the dock and transport management facilitating the end user in the decision making process, reducing the time to face a disruption occured in the inboud logistics process.
