Gapso SCP optimizes planning of a logistic chain – production, at the strategic, tactical and operational levels, considering details of the production, logistics, tax and commercial enterprise components.

The system supports detailed planning to supply and produce multiple units, as well as transportation, storage, distribution and evolution of the grid, including:

  • 1 Multimodal transport, transshipments
  • 2 Various raw material mixtures (revenue)
  • 3 Production Unit components and features
  • 4 Taxes and tax incentives
  • 5 Contracts and trade policies
  • 6 Specific business rules
  • 7 Several criteria considered in the optimization objective

Key Benefits

- Maximize margin
- Reduce inventories
- Improved service levels
- Integrated Planning
- Scenario analysis
- Visibility and quantitative understanding of the impacts of decisions, restrictions, rules and culture of your business
- Contingency plan optimization
- Quick evaluation of tactical scenarios / strategies

Gapso SCP helps answer questions like:

  • Given the productivity of the network, can demand be met in full?
  • Given future demand that the system classifies as worth considering, what is the most profitable operating strategy giving the highest contribution margin (which factories produce what and when.)
  • Given future demand, equipment productivity and current planning, is it possible to increase demand by quantity Q for product P in week S?
  • What would be the impact of a given increase in production capacity? (A particular type of equipment, for instance)
  • With a given coverage, what are the potential returns to be able to take advantage of lower freight?
  • Given the limits of each raw material, what is the best blending for production that minimizes raw material costs?
  • Given next year’s demand scenario, what is the optimal portfolio of demands to be met and how will it be met to maximize the resultant margin?
  • Given the coming years’ demand scenario and an investment and target policy, what is the ideal structure for my grid over time?

Gapso Methodology

Gapso systems combine customized off-the-shelf components and others that are specially developed depending on the need from the Gapso APS Platform . We use this approach to deliver a solution that adheres to that operation, for its analytical component, mathematical models and resolution algorithms, as well as information technology, user-friendly interfaces and integration with other systems used by the customer. We aim to minimize costs and deadlines by delivering progressive functional releases.Learn More
