Saltare :: News & Events, 17 Mar 2000 [cached]
Bill Gaylord, a company vice president, says Saltare believes it can provide greater value to manufacturers by "de-composing" supply chain management issues in this fashion."We typically will help a company analyze five specific issues related to the contracts they sign with customers and suppliers," Gaylord says."In the case of supplier contracts, those issues would be things like how much they are buying, what price they are paying, and when those items will be delivered."
Saltare helps companies establish a set of events that trigger messages to specific users.These events generally are things that could hamper the company's ability to meet its commitment to customers, such as a sudden drop in inventory levels or a critical machine going down.When a user receives such a message, they know to spring into action.And Gaylord says the Saltare application typically will provide a suggested course of action.
Saltare gives users a cockpit-like interface that allows them to monitor the movement of inventory at all locations within an enterprise.During the implementation, the company determines what level of inventory movement will trigger warning signals, and who should receive those signals."If 10 units move out of a warehouse that may not mean anything," Gaylord says, "but if 500 units move that could be a very meaningful event."
Such an event might cause the company to begin shifting inventory from other locations, or even start new production, in order to avert an impending shortage in the geographic area in which the 500 units just moved.A Saltare optimization engine that is constantly running in the background would determine the actual response to this situation.This engine pulls inventory and production planning information from back-end systems such as enterprise resources planning (ERP) and advanced planning & scheduling (APS) applications.
Gaylord says the Saltare engine generates solutions quickly because it focuses on a single problem, well-defined problem: optimizing the movement of inventory.He says that fact also eliminates the need for a data warehouse."We don't have to normalize hundreds of data elements and put them into a central repository," he says."There are five or six things we need to work through to solve a key issue.We can focus solely on those."
Wilkins says that works well until the business finds another well-defined problem that needs solving."The world will never revolve around a single analytic application," Wilkins argues."It will always revolve around business issues.
The ability to use data from SCEM systems to optimize plans according to real-time changes in orders and shipments "offers better potential to handle fluctuation in demand forecasts, provides better utilization of manufacturing and logistics capability, and gives manufacturers the ability to respond more quickly to changes in the marketplace," says Bill Gaylord, vice president of marketing and business development for Saltare Inc. (San Mateo, CA).Founded in 1998, the academically grounded Saltare, which means "leap ahead" in Italian, is in the process of deploying its first installation of LEAP!SCEM software at an $8 billion global maker of semiconductors headquartered in Europe.Relying on the concept of distributed optimization, LEAP! segments problems and organizes solutions from different nodes of the network to overcome constraints and minimize conflicts.
