Supply chain modelling and simulation - Operational Cloning
Supply Chain Consulting, Logistics Consulting, Supply Chain Strategy
Operational Cloning is a form of supply chain simulation. Operational Cloning lets you manage supply chain change and risk by creating virtual copies, or clones, of your supply chain quickly. You can then use these clones to design, experiment and communicate change before you implement it. The operational clones are built from a data set of information you already have within your business. Building the model of your supply chain can usually be done in a few days to a week depending on complexity.
Operational Cloning builds a strong bridge between the changes you design and their ultimate implementation. It creates a single, integrated simulation of your global purchasing, distribution and transportation plans. As Operational Cloning uses accelerated real time simulation of transactions across your supply chain (including down to warehouse transaction level), it provides a close to real world view of the impact of planned changes before you commit to them. Infrastructure costs, transport costs, staffing requirements, even carbon emissions can all be reviewed to ensure that you have the right model for the future of your business.
This is a very effective way of refining your supply chain strategic plans or your existing infrastructure when there is a degree of complexity around the decisions. Logistics Help consultants provide support for OC in Australia and will help you create the DNA models, run and refine the supply chain simulations and analyse the results as part of an overall strategy development project.
Once established, the supply chain models can be used many times over and held for an annual strategic review. This is a very effective tool that can save you from costly mistakes and help ensure the success of major change programs.
