An optimized supply chain network means minimized costs and risks along with improved service and the fastest-possible throughput. Yet increased global outsourcing, the rise of big data, and the need to simultaneously support many different market segments make today’s multi-tier networks extraordinarily complex. And unpredictable change is consistent everywhere along the chain, adding convoluted risks that introduce cost and threaten competitiveness. How do you understand your drivers and the impact on your overall goal? How do you model and flex those drivers to increase value?
To meet these challenges, Jabil’s Network Optimization service simulates and optimizes footprint scenarios, factoring every facet of the network, from raw material sources to end-customer locations. By providing rich scenario modeling – customizable for any supply chain – Jabil’s Network Optimization service enables reliable, fact-based decision making with remarkable accuracy. This service leverages:
A sensitivity analysis of major macroeconomic cost-drivers allows businesses to find tipping points and understand future costs. Intuitive visualizations simplify complex algorithms enabling accurate decision making at speed.
