John Galt Solutions Extends Capabilities with Enhanced Capacity Planning

Solve and Optimize Constrained Capacity to Quickly Respond to Market Challenges

DALLAS, TX—September 29, 2021 - John Galt Solutions, automating supply chain planning to empower business leaders to make better decisions faster, today announced extended capabilities to help companies facing severe capacity challenges solve and optimize for constraints across all tiers of the network. The Atlas Planning Platform ensures companies can consider all capacity and resource constraints as well as materials availability to improve operating performance, fulfill stringent customer demands, and capitalize on new opportunities.

Supply chains across industries and geographies continue to be severely impacted by capacity constraints including raw material, labor, production, and available transportation. These obstacles limit a company’s ability to satisfy customer requirements and quickly respond to market changes. John Galt’s continued investment and commitment to delivering innovations across the Atlas Planning Platform ensures companies can overcome this often unpredictable and volatile operating environment by continuously optimizing critical resources across the end-to-end supply chain.

The Atlas Planning Platform’s enhanced decision intelligence models multiple scenarios to prescribe the optimal plan accounting for cost, customer demand, risk, cross-functional constraints and objectives, profitability, and efficiency. For example, companies can balance multiple internal and external resources including warehouse and transportation labor shifts, production equipment, co-packers and co-manufacturer needs, and the financial implications of each option. In addition, segmentation and prioritization strategies enable supply chain leaders to ensure the most profitable or strategic customer orders are fulfilled based on given capacity. The Atlas Planning Platform helps determine how best to distribute production across multiple plants, and outsourced suppliers and co-packers.

Supply chain risks also bring new opportunities to capture new customers and markets. The Atlas Planning Platform helps supply chain leaders evaluate multiple growth strategies through advanced what-if scenarios and simulations to determine how much business current operations can support and model the impact of incremental capacity to determine future potential. Production can now be strategically allocated across different manufacturing plants, outsourced suppliers, and co-packers to meet projected and incremental demand. This allows supply chain teams to proactively identify when to onboard additional suppliers, securing valuable capacity before it is too late.

“Supply chains leaders are facing unprecedented challenges as volatile demand combined with severe capacity constraints of raw materials, labor, and transportation,” said Alex Pradhan, global product strategy leader, John Galt Solutions. “Companies that are able to quickly harness data, evaluate risks and opportunities, and model the multiple options available to them will gain a significant advantage satisfying customer commitments. The Atlas Planning Platform helps companies transform these risks into new opportunities for profitable growth.”
