Introduction:

Many Enterprises, irrespective of their size, still resort to decision making using rule of thumb, at best, or gut feeling, at worst. Such decision making processes not only takes long time to plan, but it also result in sub-optimal resource utilization, leading to higher expenses and capital requirement.

Decisions - such as “where to put the new plant?”, “How much should be the capacity of different plants?”, “What should be the production schedule?”, “How much inventory should be held and where?”, “How the orders can be delivered cost-effectively?” – can be made using scientifically proven models. Resorting to such decision making helps companies to reduce operational expenses and capital requirement. Decision systems using these mathematical models help companies to plan and replan in minutes. Such agility helps companies to cope with, and profit from, dynamic business environments.
