SITE LOCATION APPLICATIONS


OVERVIEW

Where Should New Facilities be Located to have the Lowest Cost Delivery of Products?

OPTIMAL SITE LOCATION APPLICATIONS enable users to determine where to locate manufacturing and warehouse facilities to meet customer demands at the minimum cost considering the capital cost of new facilities. Typical savings are 3% or more of the total supply chain cost.

An implementation of an OPTIMAL SITE LOCATION APPLICATION is locating a manufacturing facility closer to customers to reduce distribution costs or closer to raw material supply to reduce cost of goods.
