16 Site Types Customer Site Only customer sites can have demand
Customer sites have sourcing policies but NO inventory policies They do not ship to other sites or produce any products Flow into customer sites = $$$ (revenue!) Existing Facility Indicates this site presently exists in the supply chain Potential Facility Indicates this site presently does not exist in the supply chain Type, and Choice combine to determine which costs to apply Open Potential Facility = Add Startup Cost Closing Existing Facility = Add Closing Cost Always incur Fixed Operating Costs if flow exists

17 Creating the Opt_Training_Basic Model

28 Shipments Vs. Demand Shipments are typically modeled through the Transportation Policies table Shipments table allows you to model shipments outside of the Transportation Policies table There are no cost fields in the Shipments data table- the costs in the Transportation Policies table are used to calculate the transportation costs Allows for accurate modeling of a “Push” system, instead of a demand driven supply chain 

29 Opt_Training_Basic Model: Sourcing Policy
MFG DC 1 CZ DC 2 Product_A, Product_B Identifies which sites to send replenishment and customer orders, and whether product is ordered from an outside source or made at that site

30 Types of Sourcing Policies
Single Source Single Source (Select Closest) Multiple Sources (Most Inventory) Multiple Sources (Order of Preference) Multiple Sources (Probability) Source by Transfer Make Make by Schedule Make (Single Process) Make (Order of Preference) Make (Probability) Hint: Use the Quick Reference Card for descriptions of these policies!

31 Opt_Training_Basic Model: Adding Sourcing Policies
Open the Sourcing Policies Table Add a total of (10) Sourcing Policies 4 Multiple Sources (Most Inventory) CZ can source Product_A from DC_1 and DC_2 CZ can source Product_B from DC_1 and DC_2 4 Single Source Each DC can only source from the MFG for Both Products 2 Make 1 for each product at the Manufacturer

32 Opt_Training_Basic Model: Layout Map

33 Opt_Training_Basic Model: Transportation Policy
MFG DC 1 CZ DC 2 There must be at least one Transportation Policy that applies to source and destination which is not “Make” Each Transportation Policy defines a “Flow” Source Site Destination Site Product (all applicable products if not explicitly entered) Mode (1 if not explicitly entered)

34 Types of Transportation Policies

43 Optimization Basic Component 2

44 Learning Objective- Cost
Distinguish between the different costs used in Supply Chain Optimization with the software Apply costs to the network built in Exercise 1 Goal: Successfully optimize the network with the new costs included

45 Three Basic Components of Optimization
Structure Costs Constraints

46 Basic Costs for Optimization
Site Costs Fixed operating Fixed startup Closing Transportation Costs Average Cost Duty Rate Discount Rate Return Trip Cost Transportation Asset Costs Unit Fixed Cost Inventory Costs Site inventory In-transit inventory Inbound and Outbound Warehousing Production Costs Work Center Costs Fixed Operating Fixed Startup Closing Work Resource Cost

47 Basic Costs Site Costs

48 Site Costs Fixed Operating Fixed Startup Closing

49 Site Costs: Fixed Operating
Costs associated with the day to day operations of the facility Enable use of a step- function to associate the operating cost based upon operating capacity

50 Site Costs: Fixed Operating
Facility is closed/not used if the throughput is zero. Facility is open at Level 1 if the throughput is between 0 and 5,000 pounds. Facility is open at level 2 if throughput greater than 5,000 pounds

51 Site Costs: Fixed Start-Up
Costs to open and begin operating a new facility Only applies to Potential Facilities No thoughput constraints Ability to use step- function to associate start up cost with operating capacity

52 Site Costs: Closing Cost to end operations at an Existing Facility
Does not apply to Potential Facilities or Customers

53 Exercise 2a: Add Site Costs

54 Exercise 2a: Create New Cost Model
From the Project Explorer, right click on the Opt_Training_Basic Model Select Copy Model Right Click on the copied model Select Save Model As Save model as: Opt_Training_Cost

55 Exercise 2a: Add Fixed Operating Costs
Open the Sites Table Open the Field Guru Enter the following Fixed Costs: DC_1 Capacity Cost DC_2 Capacity Cost 0 50

56 Exercise 2a: Complete Fixed Operating Costs
Now run the optimization and view the results!

57 Basic Costs Transportation Costs

58 Transportation Costs: The Concept of “Flow”
In Optimization, there are no individual shipments Instead it is the total amount shipped, as determined by the optimizer This total amount is the “Flow”. Site A Site B 10,000 Units

59 Transportation Cost “Average Unit Transportation Cost” Average Cost
Cost Basis Shipment Weight Distance

60 Transportation Cost: Average Cost
Related to Cost Basis Transportation Cost per Cost Basis Unit Associated Field Guru

61 Transportation Cost: Cost Basis
Weight = Avg Cost * Weight of Flow Qty = Avg Cost * Number of Units of Flow Cubic = Avg Cost * Volume of Flow Distance = Cost per Mile Fixed = Fixed Cost per Shipment Weight-Distance = Cost per Pound per Mile Qty-Distance = Cost per Unit per Mile Cubic-Distance = Cost per Volume per Mile

62 Transportation Cost: Distance and Fixed Cost Basis
In order to cost these correctly the optimizer needs to approximate the number of shipments made Site A Site B 10,000 Units Total Flow

63 Transportation Cost: Shipment Weight
Since the optimizer only knows the flow (sum of all shipments), the only way to cost at the “shipment” level is to approximate the shipment size. If the flow is 10,000 pounds, and the average shipment weight is 1000 pounds that corresponds to 10 shipments.

64 Transportation Cost: Distance
Calculate using Straight Line Based on latitude and longitude of source and destination sites Adds a circuity factor (17%- in Model Options) Calculate Using Mappoint Routing Interfaces with Microsoft Mappoint to determine actual road distance Must have Map Point installed on the same computer

65 Transportation Cost: Transportation Assets
Total cost of owning or using each unit of this asset   This is a fixed cost, not used to calculate profits or expenses in the network operation Included on the summary report, can be used to compare various scenarios

66 Transportation Cost: Other Costs
Duty Discount Rate Return Trip Cost

67 Exercise 2b: Add Transportation Costs to Cost Model

68 Exercise 2b: Add Transportation Costs
Copy Opt_Training_Cost Model Save as Opt_Training_Cost_Transpo Add the following costs: MFG facility always costs 2.00 per unit shipped to any location DC_1 costs per unit, per mile to ship to the customer DC_2 costs per unit, per mile to ship to the customer

69 Exercise 2b: Results Now run the optimization and view results!

70 Basic Costs Inventory Costs

71 Inventory Costs Facility Inventory Holding
In-transit Inventory Holding Inbound Warehousing Outbound Warehousing

72 Inventory Costs: Facility Inventory Holding
Inv Holding Cost = Avg Inv * Product Value * (i/365) * T Avg Inv = Average Inventory Product Value = Value in Products Table i = Annual inventory carrying cost % T = Optimization period in days

73 Inventory Costs: Average Inventory Calculation
Method of Calculation Inventory Turns OR Constituent Parts Safety Stock Inventory Cycle Stock Inventory Pre-Build Inventory

74 Facility Inventory Level Determination
Factors which affect inventory levels Volume/ Qty of product throughput (Tput) Number of facilities in the network As the number of facilities decreases, the average inventory in the remaining facilities increases due to increased throughput, but at a decreasing rate. Total Facility Inventory

75 Average Inventory Calculation 1: Inventory Turns
Ratio of inventory throughput to average inventory Increasing Inventory Turns reduces Facility Holding Costs Must balance turnover with safety stock to avoid stockout Also called Stock turns, turns, stock turnover

76 Inventory Turns: Linear Approximation
Inv Turns = 8  Avg Inv = m * Tput m = Inverse of Inventory Turns Tput = Volume of Product Throughput

77 Inventory Turns: Pooling Effect
Piecewise linear approximation Used in locations with considerable amounts of product, typically called a distribution center Average Inventory can defined over multiple ranges of throughput. Format for the relationship is a series of pairs <lower range value, turns value> Piecewise linear functions are usually only used at DCs and other locations where considerable product is held. Other locations which hold less inventory tend to exhibit liner holding costs for most products- Modeling the Supply Chain, 2nd Ed. Shapiro, Jeremy. Page 417

78 Average Inventory Calculation 2: Constituent Parts
Pre-build Safety Stock Cycle Stock

79 Constituent Parts: Pre-Build Inventory
Results from demand exceeding production capability in one period, but excess production completed in the previous period Example In a 2 period model MFG has a production capacity of 50 units The demand is 20 and 80 units in Periods 1 and 2 respectively The MFG site produces 50 units each period In the first period the 30 excess units produced are stored as Pre-Build Inventory Viewed in the Optimization Output- Inventory Table

80 Constituent Parts: Safety Stock
Held excess product Also called a buffer The model may tap into the safety stock when necessary

81 Constituent Parts: Cycle Stock
Portion of inventory allocated to meet anticipated demand In a simple model where demand is constant, cycle stock equals half the order size The blue line refers to actual cycle inventory The red line refers to the average cycle stock The order size is 2 units and occurs once per unit time

82 Average Inventory Calculation: Constituent Parts
Sum of pre-build inventory, safety stock and the cycle stock

83 Inventory Costs: Facility Inventory Holding
Why determine Average Inventory? Avg Inv is used to calculate Facility Inventory Holding Costs in the Optimization Inv Holding Cost = Avg Inv * Product Value * (i/365) * T Avg Inv = Average Inventory Product Value = The Product’s Value in the Products Table i = Annual inventory holding cost % T = Optimization period in days

84 Inventory Costs: In-transit Inventory
Total Cost due to value of products being transported and transport time In-transit Inventory Cost = Q * Product Value * (i/365) * T Q = Quantity of Products in-transit Product Value = Value in Products Table i = Capacity Cost % in Model Options T = Transport Time in Days

85 In-transit Inventory Costs: Example
Customer Demand = 1000 units 10 days 90 days DC_B_Overseas DC_A_Local Product Value = $500 In-transit Inventory Cost = Q * Product Value * (i/365) * T A to C   1000 * $500 * (15%/365) * 10 = $2,055 B to C  * $500 * (15%/365) * 90 = $18,493

86 Inventory Costs: Inbound and Outbound Warehousing
Inbound Warehousing Cost: activity cost of handling and moving one unit of product from receiving dock to inventory   Outbound Warehousing Cost: activity cost of removing one unit of this product from inventory to the shipping dock Includes such costs as paper tracking procedures, handling equipment, and personnel Does not include Transportation Costs

87 Exercise 2c: Add Inventory Costs

88 Exercise 2c: Add Inventory Costs
Copy Opt_Training_Costs_Transpo Save as Opt_Training_Costs_Inventory DC_1 5 Inventory Turns 15% Annual Inventory Holding Cost Inbound Warehousing= .5 Outbound Warehousing = .6 DC_2 7 Inventory Turns 15% Annual Inventory Holding Cost Inbound Warehousing = .7 Outbound Warehousing = .8

93 Optimization Basic Component 3

94 Learning Objective- Constraints
The learner will be able to explain the different constraints involved in the software, identify potential constraints to a supply chain model, apply constraints to a practice model, and successfully perform an optimization on the model

95 Constraints in Optimization
Basics of Constraints Aggregate Constraints Flow Inventory Production Site Service Constraints Max Sourcing Distance Due Date End to End Bundled Demand

96 The Basics of Constraints: Definition
Restrictions placed upon the model Aggregate Constraints: restriction defined for a sum over multiple objects, with at least one object having two or more values Flow Inventory Production Site Service Constraints: restriction placed on the service to a customer

97 The Basics of Constraints: Use in the Software
Types of Constraints Minimum Maximum Fixed Conditional Minimum Constraint Variable Inputs Specific: Refers to one site/ product/ time period/ mode Set: Refers to a group of sites/ products/time periods/ modes All: Refers to all sites/ products/ time periods/ modes

98 Aggregate Constraints
Throughput Flow Inventory Production Site

99 Aggregate Constraints: Throughput
Site is restricted by the amount of flow (basis)in the model during the specified period Step function depicts capacity limit with INF

100 Aggregate Constraints: Flow
Flow requirement, flow requirement type, flow requirement basis, and time period that the restriction occurs Restricted by 5 elements: Site, Destination, Mode, Product , or Time Period DC 1 CZ 1

101 Aggregate Constraints: Flow
Places a restriction on the product flow over a set of time periods, between source and destination sites, for products or when using a specified mode

102 Aggregate Constraints: Flow Count
Sets up intricate constraints in the model linking the following 5 variables; Source, Destination, Product, Mode and Period By aggregating the Destination Sites, Products and Modes it disregards the various possible flows that are due to these variables

103 Aggregate Constraints: Inventory
Restricted by 3 Elements Site Product Time Period

104 Aggregate Constraints: Inventory
Allows the specification of additional rules regarding inventory Defines aggregated quantities over sites, products, and time periods

105 Aggregate Constraints: Inventory Count
Similar to aggregate flow count Can utilize the “Set” feature of the Groups Table

106 Aggregate Constraints: Production
Restricted by 4 elements Site Process Product Time Period

107 Aggregate Constraints: Production
Defines aggregated productions that need to be restricted by a plant, or set of plants and by products, or set of products

108 Aggregate Constraints: Production Count
Similar to Aggregate Flow Count, but pertains to Productions

109 Aggregate Constraints: Site
Defines the minimum and maximum number of open sites allowed in a set of periods

110 Aggregate Constraints at Sites
Allows the user to customize the number of sites that can be used in a specific time period

111 Service Constraints Maximum Sourcing Distance Due Date End to End Bundled Demand

112 Service Constraints: Maximum Sourcing Distance
Consider a network with manufacturing, warehousing, and customer echelons. All flows between two successive echelons are permitted. DISTANCES M2 M3 M1 CZ_1 CZ_2 CZ_3 CZ_4 WH2 WH3 WH1 WH1 WH2 WH3 M1 500 800 120 M2 600 1000 200 M3 300 750 CZ_1 CZ_2 CZ_3 CZ_4 WH1 180 720 340 600 WH2 700 150 280 100 WH3 200 70 640

113 Maximum Sourcing Distance
If the maximum sourcing distance is 200 miles for customers and 500 for the warehouses, the network is reduced to the following flow alternatives. DISTANCES CZ_1 WH1 WH2 WH3 M1 500 800 120 M2 600 1000 200 M3 300 750 M1 WH1 CZ_2 M2 WH2 CZ_3 CZ_1 CZ_2 CZ_3 CZ_4 WH1 180 720 340 600 WH2 700 150 280 100 WH3 200 70 640 M3 WH3 CZ_4

114 Maximum Sourcing Distance
Between the end site and the source node Distance Based Can be set in either the Sourcing Policy Table or the Service Requirements Table

115 Service Constraints: Customer Due Date
Customer due date-driven service constraints force the demand to be classified by customer lead times. Suppose P1 demand at each customer is 100 units. Classified demand CZ_1 CZ_2 CZ_3 WH2 WH1 P1 in 7 days=75 P1 in 3 days=25 P1 in 5 days=50 P1 in 1 days=50 P1 in 6 days=40 P1 in 5 days=60 4 3 2 6 5 7 1 Air Truck Rail

116 Customer Due Date All supply alternatives are feasible for the first demand classification, but only the following alternatives are feasible for the second classification CZ_1 CZ_2 CZ_3 WH2 WH1 P1 in 3 days P1 in 1 days P1 in 5 days 4 2 5 3 1 Air Truck Rail

117 Customer Due Date Only from the last echelon site to the customer
Time- based Set in the Demand Table

118 Service Constraints: End-to-End
End-to-end service requirements are given from a make-node to a customer node. M2 M1 CZ_1 CZ_2 WH2 WH3 WH1 Time from M1 to CZ_1 for Product1 <= 5 days Time from M2 to CZ_1 for all products <= 7 days Distance from M1 to CZ_2 for Product2 <= 250 miles

119 End to End Constraints Source Site does not have to directly deliver to the customer; there may be other facilities in the network where the order will pass through Specified by maximum time for an order to leave the facility and reach the customer OR by maximum allowable distance between the facility and the customer Set in Service Requirements Table

120 Service Constraints: Bundle Demand
When choosing to bundle demand, demand for all products at one customer site will be sourced from one or multiple facilities at the same ratio WH1 450 75 Demand CZ_1(P1) = 600 Demand CZ_1(P2) = 100 CZ_1 150 25 WH2

121 Bundled Demand Check this box to aggregate all the demand by customers
When a customer demands multiple products, these are sourced in equal ratios from one or multiple sites (proportional to the demand quantities for these products)

122 Exercise 3a: Constraining the Optimization Model

123 Unconstrained Model Al Five DCs in Use
Houston Processing Plant supplies only DC_KC

124 With Aggregate Flow Constraints
Max Flow Reqt Type means at most 500 units of flow can go through DC_Albany. Cond Min Flow Reqt Type means we either have at least 1000 units flow through DC_Portland or none at all. How does this change our optimized results?

125 With Aggregate Flow Constraints
DC_Portland not used, customers now served by DC_Phoenix Fewer CZs in Northeast are served by DC_Albany, more by DC_Atlanta

126 With Aggregate Production Constraints
Max Flow Requirement Type means that at most 1000 units can be produced at Norfolk. Min Flow Requirement Type means at least 850 units must be produced at Reno. How does this change our optimized results?

127 With Aggregate Production Constraints
Fewer CZs in Midwest served by DC_Atlanta, more by DC_KC.

128 With Aggregate Site Constraints
Create Group that contains all five DCs. Constrain Optimizer to select between one and three sites from within that group. How does this change our optimized results?

129 With Aggregate Site Constraints
Portland and Phoenix DCs are unused, KC picks up the slack.

130 With Aggregate Inventory Constraints
Open the Optimization Output Inventory table and note the inventory costs at DC_KC. Set Minimum Inventory at DC_KC to 100 units. Optimize the model. How does this change inventory costs at DC_KC?

131 Exercise 3b: Add Constraints

132 Exercise 3b: Add Constraints
Copy the Final Cost Model Save as Opt_Training_Constraints Add the following Constraint: DC_1 can only ship a maximum of 50 units of Product_A to CZ_1 for the entire model period (Horizon) Now run the model and view the results! How this affect the network design?

133 Check on Learning- Constraints
You should be able to: Define aggregate constraints Define service constraints Open the service requirements table Open the aggregate constraint tables Create service constraints Create aggregate constraints Define and distinguish between serve and aggregate constraints Explain the constraint requirement types Apply aggregate constraints to a model Apply service constraints to a model Understand aggregate constraints sum and objects

134 Infeasibility Analysis

135 Guru Infeasibility Analysis
Sometimes the optimization solver returns with a “Problem Infeasible” error message Infeasibility refers to a problem with input data- there is no solution that fulfills all the constraints Guru provides the following tools to help the user identify the source of infeasibility Check for supply-demand imbalance Check for logic errors in defining the network structure Remove all or some hard constraints and solve again
