SAFER, FASTER AND MORE COST-EFFECTIVE DELIVERY THROUGH SIMULATION

High service levels secure your earnings, but can cost a lot of money if paid for with excess inventories. We help you raise your service levels cost-effectively and ensure they remain at this level in the long run by using AI-supported systems.

As a quick approach, our Service Level Booster has proven its worth. If you want us to go into more detail, we recommend our simulation-supported situation analysis. Here, we uncover the critical points for increasing service levels in your value stream and planning processes, calculate the effectiveness of various measures and thus identify the economically viable strategies.

Abels & Kemmner supports leading companies to optimally define their service levels!

SERVICE LEVEL BOOSTER

Increase the overall service level of your product portfolio using AI

Features of the Service Level Booster:

  • For the first time, you can specify one target value for your overall service level
  • The required safety stock is reduced to the necessary minimum
  • Any portfolio segmentation is possible

Our AI-application detects a solution in around 90 seconds

Would you like to distribute the service levels in your product portfolio so that you achieve the desired product availability with the lowest possible inventories?


This task cannot be solved with classical approaches. To find a feasible solution, typically more than 1089 calculations would have to be performed. With AI-supported optimization algorithms, our SERVICE LEVEL BOOSTER, a module of our high performance simulation solution, solves this challenge for you.


Our Service Level Booster delivers the results as individual service levels for the specified portfolio segments , which you can transfer to your ERP system as a default value. The required input data is easy to provide.

CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

Fabian Ossen

Supply Chain Manager Sihl GmbH

"The simulative analysis of our global value chain showed us the crucial starting points for improving our service levels and significantly reducing our inventories.


The fact that A&K also implemented and achieved the results together with us was a decisive factor for us."

VALIDATED SUCCESSES

Increasing product availability is a good start, but only the tip of the iceberg of supply chain optimization.

Achieving a cost-effective but high-performing supply chain requires the following steps.

service level booster | Abels & Kemmner

Using the data from your ERP system, we create a powerful digital twin of your value streams and planning processes. This enables us to

  • Develop approaches to raise service levels and specify reasonable safety stock levels
  • Compare possible future inventory management strategies and together with you optimize the most suitable one to your needs
  • Reduce the required effort for planners and schedulers to the necessary minimum

With the application of constraint analyses, we systematically uncover the root causes of unsatisfactory supply chains and planning processes, derive suitable improvement measures and help you implement them. Some examples of topics we often address:

  • Bottlenecks and missing parts
  • Reduction of lead times
  • Minimization of scrap rates
  • Increasing service levels
  • Supplier integration

We solve your challenges!
