Valogix Advances the State-of-the-Art in Inventory Planning Software
May 11, 2012 - Saratoga Springs, NY - Valogix LLC, a provider of advanced, web-based inventory planning and optimization solutions announced today that it has released a major innovation to its cloud application. The latest product called VALOGIX® DMRP Inventory Planner helps companies plan and manage inventory more efficiently, while helping to improve their positive cash flow.
VALOGIX® DMRP Inventory Planner simultaneously plans for items needed both in the manufacturing (production) process and sold separately as finished goods. This smooth-flow process is unique because it accurately plans the independent inventory based on its own parameters and demand. Most planning techniques for finished goods were borne out of the manufacturing process, which leave gaps in inventory coverage for distributors and retailers.
Charles Martin, PhD, Chief Scientist at Valogix explains, "with two years in development, the new robust planning engine capabilities result in high efficiency and rapid results. Most inventory planning solutions require extensive "expert systems" (if ... then ... else ...) logic. Inevitably, this approach is difficult to maintain, lacks some important special cases, and confuses users. Valogix built sophisticated mathematical algorithms with broader application and simpler maintenance. These mathematical algorithms are sophisticated, but are the utmost in simplicity to use and understand for planners. Result: The optimization from the Exchange Curve Analysis removes the need for the buyer/planner guesswork."
Valogix worked with IBM in bringing this advanced technology to market. Valogix incorporates IBM software into the virtualized solution. Chosen for its reliability and advanced technology, IBM® DB2® is a powerful, highly reliable database that is self-tuning and requires little to no maintenance. It can scale to any size business. IBM® WebSphere® Application Server is the middleware that communicates with the browser and the Internet.
Operating under a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, the business now allows its customers to not only run on-premises versions of its software but to also access virtualized instances of its application from an internally managed cloud environment including IBM® Power SystemsT and IBM® System x® hardware. The Valogix software takes advantage of the virtualization capabilities and high performance of the IBM server hardware.
The new innovation incorporates numerous enhancements and new features including a Bill-of-Materials, Time Phased Planning and specialized reports. Expanded product configuration and User-defined planning parameters rounds out the advancements. Valogix DMRP Inventory Planner can be implemented either On-Premise or in the Cloud.
