LLamasoft Debuts Mobile Design and Visualization Modeling Tool

LLamasoft, a vendor of supply-chain design software, has introduced Supply Chain Sherpa.

The mobile modeling app makes "what-if" scenario functionality available to all partners in an organization. Users can rapidly model complex supply-chain networks using the iPad touchscreen environment. Supply-chain designs are then visualized on configurable maps and graphs. Key metrics, including service, cost, logistics, sustainability and risk, are immediately available as part of Supply Chain Sherpa's embedded reference data. Users can copy and edit a supply chain to compare alternative scenarios. The resulting metrics become immediately available using LLamasoft's proprietary Deterministic Flow Model algorithm. In addition, users can share designs with other Supply Chain Sherpa users via e-mail, or send the models to Supply Chain Guru for more detailed modeling optimization and simulation. Supply Chain Sherpa can be used as a standalone network-design tool, LLamasoft said.
