INSIGHT Inc announces a new data analysis and visualization module for the SAILS strategic supply chain design software suite.
The new offering, entitled the SAILS Data Visualization Module, distills the essence of large, complex strategic supply chains into a few tables that make it easy to display maps, graphical results, or hierarchical relationships. The new data export facility makes it easy to exploit the power of third-party tools such as Tableau software or Microsoft Excel 2013.
INSIGHT’s new capability enables both analysts and executives to probe complex questions more quickly and intuitively. Set-up is quick, does not require IT support, and provides access to data such as:
•Total system metrics
•Commodity metrics
•Procurement analysis at the supplier and raw material level
•Manufacturing analysis at the facility, line, and product level
•Distribution analysis at the facility and product level
•Transportation analysis at the lane and product level
•Product and customer segment flow path analysis
A unique feature of the SAILS Data Visualization Module is the ability to examine in detail model inputs as well as outputs. While most commercial packages focus on results, it is just as important to identify anomalies in the inputs when building models of complex supply chains.
INSIGHT’s flagship supply chain design software solution, SAILS, enables executives to achieve millions of dollars in savings by consistently improving the supply chain. Most recently the company introduced SCOREKEEPER, which allows simulation of complete supply chain operations, including procurement, manufacturing, and finished goods distribution at a daily level of detail. It features complete, seamless integration into the SAILS system, including database, user interface, and output reports and graphics. It enables the user to simulate either the current supply chain (baseline) or the result of any SAILS optimization exercise with automatic communication of either solution to the simulation.
