Blue Sky Logistics says it has embedded the Juncture Optimization engine from Optricity Corporation into its own Insight decision dashboard in an effort to boost performance in such areas as product and equipment routing, scheduling, assignments and queuing.
With Optricity's product as the algorithmic solver engine and Blue Sky Logistics as the supply chain visibility solution, the two companies will be able to provide customers with a more comprehensive visibility and resolution application, says Steve Hensley, president of Blue Sky.
"Optricity has the top supply chain optimization engine in the industry, and 'Powered by Optricity' is one additional way we will be able to add real supply chain value for our customers," Hensley says.
"We have coined the term 'Juncture Optimization' to describe our positioning at merge points or 'in the cracks' between mainstream systems where visibility applications may reside but where there is no use of optimization techniques to achieve a more globally optimal solution to supply chain problems," says Dan Basmajian, president of Optricity.
