Llamasoft Supply Chain Guru X (former Barloworld tool CAST)

Llamasoft Supply Chain Guru X is a leading edge supply chain network design application used to model global or regional logistics networks. Llamasoft’s Supply Chain Guru X is used within the third party logistics, manufacturing, retail and consultancy sectors on a worldwide scale. It is a software tool to simulate different supply chain network scenarios on operational costs (warehousing, transport and inventory) and business constraints (lead-times, fixed warehouse locations, …). These business constraints can be integrated with optimization methods to produce outcomes that are both customized and cost minimized to the specific business criteria. The objective of Supply Chain Guru X is to determine the optimal supply chain network, focusing on the number of manufacturing plants/warehouses and the center-of-gravity where these manufacturing plants/warehouses should be located.

The software allows:

  • to work with your actual transportation rates instead of averages
  • for isochrone modeling: determine the actual transportation lead-times based on transportation distances and driving speed per transport mode.

In Supply Chain Guru X you can easily visualize your model scenarios in different ways utilizing maps, views, graphs and dashboards.

Apart from Supply Chain Guru X, Groenewout also uses transport routing software from ArcGIS, for more detailed analysis and optimization on transportation.
