Comprehensive Decision Support Solutions for Improving Operations Management in the Batch Industry Supply Chain
Many business and process operational decisions ultimately determine the yield, quality and throughput of batch product operations. Improving operations therefore requires analysis of the process starting at the top of the supply chain down to the plant floor. A comprehensive approach to this problem is presented which applies multiple technologies to clearly identify, characterize and deploy solutions for improving batch operations. Impact modeling identifies and quantifies supply chain improvement opportunities that can be explored through what if scenarios. By drilling down from the enterprise level into the production environment, opportunities for process improvements and optimization are identified. The benefits of implementing process improvements through knowledge capture and deployment and advanced monitoring, control and optimization systems become clear. Analyzing the global impact of interacting local issues within the context of the entire supply chain and using a suite of technologies to solve local issues leads to comprehensive decision support solutions for improving yield, quality and throughput of batch product operations.
