Network Designer

Continuously improve the strength and resiliency of your supply chain.

The GAINS platform’s network design capabilities empower businesses to manage and improve the performance of all the assets and moving parts of the supply chain. Through advanced modeling and simulation, the cloud-native solution gives network designers the comprehensive insight needed to understand risks, visualize scenarios and interdependencies, and evaluate tradeoffs that impact costs, delivery times, and service levels.

Discover the difference GAINS has in network design.

Strengthen Resiliency

Model and design a resilient supply network capable of withstanding a variety of disruptions, such as labor shortages, weather delays, and geopolitical instability. Use advanced network optimization to assess the impact of different scenarios to the business and to your customers.

Maintain Cost Efficiency

Our supply chain design solution informs immediate and long-term decisions, focusing on delivering measurable value and reducing costs at every stage as you identify and operationalize supply chain design decisions.

Support Sustainability Goals

Factor CO2 emissions and environmental impact into your supply chain network models. Understand the tradeoffs of network decisions, such as manufacturing closer to the customer, farshoring and nearshoring scenarios, and paying higher labor costs or opting for sea transportation instead of air.

Address Inherent Complexity

Spreadsheets and other more traditional design methods cannot match the pace or scale of a modern supply chain. GAINS helps supply chain designers uncover the answers to complex questions, such as “How do we rebalance our inventory policies based on real-time changes in supply and demand?”, “How can we continually configure our supply chain to boost profitability?,” and “Where should we source new products today?”

GAINS informs or automates millions of supply chain decisions a day.
