  • Logility helps you create accurate, effective production plans that minimize resource constraints. Even in a highly complex production environment, you can slash manufacturing planning time, increase through put, and fill rates. Use Manufacturing Planning to: create production plans that support new product introductions, achieve true least-cost, least-change manufacturing, and establish realistic inventory limits across single or multiple plants. Topics to be covered include:
    • Overview of MP (representation, algorithms, outputs, integration)
    • Scheduling algorithms (Infinite capacity plan, new insertion sequencing algorithm, find unit that best fits amount, assign production proportionally, etc.)
    • Modelling manufacturing stages, BOMs, change overs, and auxiliary resources
    • KPI capabilities (100+ KPI’s ) and exception handling capability
    • Integrate this with upstream solutions such as Supply Planning, Replenishment Planning, and downstream MES/shop floor execution systems
    Session attendees will gain the knowledge in leveraging Logility Manufacturing Planning and how it fits within the integrated planning and scheduling world.

  • Learn how to streamline distribution to store by size need, determine the right size scale by store and ship and replenish to those size scales efficiently. To better leverage pre-packs, start with the right size scales by individual store, allocate and replenish to that scale and build optimal size packs to each store to increase operating efficiency Explore the approaches to setting size scales:
    • At what level in the hierarchy?
    • How frequently to update?
    • Use of size constraints
    Accelerate distribution by building optimal size packs:
    • Understanding the impact of vendor constraints
    • Leveraging system or user defined pack options
    • Determining what percent of an order should be bulk

  • Introduction to Inventory Optimization is a foundation course for supply chain stakeholders and business managers. This course offers an introduction to inventory optimization planning and strategy. It will help businesses gain insight into the uncertainties inherent in your demand and supply networks, learn how positioning inventory at certain points in your supply chain can maintain optimal service levels and minimize the impact of uncertainty in supply and demand, and demonstrate ways to utilize Logility’s inventory software to design alternative supply chain strategies for your business. This session will cover:
    • Multi-echelon inventory concepts
    • Key drivers and uncertainty
    • Service level optimization
    • Benefits of MEIO

  • The latest release of Demand Planning, Inventory Planning, and Replenishment Planning has some major changes. Topics covered include:
    • The New Web Based Functionality

    • Is the retail method of accounting going to be replaced by cost accounting? Why and why not?
    • How often is the plan adjusted? How often is the plan ignored?

  • Starting with version 8.5, there are new requirements for roles and security that provide for enhanced management and control of your Voyager solution. This session will help you understand the new capabilities in order to help prepare for the administration necessary to take advantage of the greater levels of security enabled in version 8.5.
    • What levels of data can be managed through security setup
    • How are views managed specific to roles and security
    • What types of roles are defined
    • How are roles and security managed administratively

  • Management by Exception (MBE) is a best practice. The appropriate application of MBE techniques and tools can lead to not only improved efficiency and productivity but contribute to the bottom line. Topics include:
    • Management By Exception Strategy
    • Alerts
    • Views
    • Key Performance Indicators

  • This session is an introduction to Supply Planning fundamentals and the process of supply planning. The session offers a comprehensive overview of how supply planning works and the various capabilities offered. It will discuss the data that drives Supply Planning as well as the interactions between Supply Planning, Inventory Planning and Demand Planning. This session will cover such key topics as:
    • Supply planning process and capabilities
    • Constraint based planning in SP
    • Vendor minimum planning
    • Load optimization and load building

    • The typical supply planning cycle
    • Evolving beyond unconstrained planning

  • Remember when true VMI was all the rage? Has VMI lived up to all the hype? Customers are willing to share POS information, in stock positions, and warehouse inventories. But, do customers let suppliers manage their inventory and create replenishment recommendations that include title transfer? That, after all is the goal of VMI. Learn how to use the available information to model and recommend what the customer should order and include that information in your supply chain planning. This session will include:
    • Identifying the required data
    • Creating a customer model
    • Managing the model
    • Interfacing with your supply chain

  • A new feature in the latest release will help you streamline and automate the allocation process while leveraging existing and new allocation rules. Explore:
    • How an overall min/max quantity can be defined by store for several different items
    • Leverage options/rules that can be assigned to specific items or the entire group
    • Learn how the system determines which specific items are allocated to each store

  • For multi-dimensional products, it is a daunting challenge to calculate the appropriate forecast at the lowest level of detail with a disciplined consistency. Proportional Profile Planning is uniquely designed to help do just that. It supports the creation, maintenance, and application of time phased disaggregation profiles to give you more granularity with less effort. This session will cover:
    • Organizing the universe of measures
    • Determining the best level of detail to create profiles
    • Initial stocking versus replenishment profiles
    • Automatic application of profiles to products
