Infor says the latest version of its supply chain modeling solution, Infor SCM Network Design, optimizes users' networks in a number of ways, not least in making them more carbon efficient.
Infor says its product has advanced modeling capabilities that incorporate relevant costs, facilities and transport modes to help companies make strategic decisions that maximize efficiencies based on criteria most important to the organization. In the latest release, Infor SCM Network Design incorporates sustainability criteria, enabling companies to factor carbon emissions related to nodes, such as plants, warehouses and stores, and transport modes, including rail, air, trucking, and ocean freight. This enables organizations to take the first steps in greening their supply chain, by first calculating the carbon emissions generated from their supply chain network and then fine-tuning it to lower emissions while also achieving cost and service objectives, according to Infor.
"Supply chains can become out of tune due to factors like mergers and acquisitions and fluctuating fuel costs," says John Pulling, Infor's senior director of supply chain management. "Infor SCM Network Design helps companies continually evaluate their networks so they can implement and maintain more cost and carbon efficient supply chains."
