Constraint-based Decision-Making significantly improves workflow management, customer service, and bottom-line performance.

AGI's Decision Support Software provides an effective, easy-to-use constraint-based workflow management capability for improved performance whether the workflows are Project-, Production-, or Inventory-based.

ANALYZE - Replenishment

Replenishment is a constraint-based inventory planning process designed to provide improved management control and lead to significantly better performance outcomes - availability, turns, and cost. The ability to control performance outcomes is accomplished by determining inventory levels using the factors that best predict the risk of stock-outs in meeting future requirements - actual demand patterns and highly probable replenishment times. Controlling outcomes then becomes a function of monitoring actual-to-planned operations, and taking the appropriate actions to ensure corrections are made prior to achieving an undesired result. This process serves to both decrease the impact of variability in both supply and demand and to provide for focused process improvement efforts.

ANALYZE provides and easy-to-understand process for setting inventory levels for all stocked items. Users have the ability to perform what-if scenarios to determine buffer sizes based on demand, varying degrees of risk, and replenishment timing. Pattern recognition can be used to determine inventory levels that produce the highest sales and inventory turnover by satisfying demand without variability getting in the way.

 

MANAGE - Drum-Buffer-Rope (DBR)

DBR is a constraint-based production scheduling process designed to provide significantly better performance outcomes - on-time, lead-time, and cost. Controlling performance outcomes is accomplished through visibility of each order's completion status across a mix of orders with clearly connected work assignment priorities. Well-defined work completion updates are used to determine predicted buffer consumption and shifts in resource loading that need to be proactively addressed.

MANAGE provides an easy-to-understand priority system for all in-process work which significantly improves execution management. Problem areas where work is queuing are identified and priorities adjusted while there is still time to do so without disruption or the need for additional resources.

 

PIM Suite - Critical Chain Portfolio Management (CCPM)

CCPM is a constraint-based project planning and scheduling process designed to provide significantly better performance outcomes - on-time, in-scope, and in-budget. Controlling performance outcomes is accomplished through visibility of each project's completion status across a portfolio of projects with clearly connected task assignment priorities. Well-defined task time completion updates are used to determine predicted buffer consumption and shifts in resource loading that need to be proactively addressed.

PIM Suite provides an easy-to-understand priority system for all in-process work which significantly improves execution management. Problem areas where work is queuing are identified and priorities adjusted while there is still time to do so without disruption or the need for additional resources. Problem areas where projected task completion times will impact project completions are identified for proactive corrective actions.
