Chemical Supply Chain

Market conditions are changing rapidly and constantly. Volatility in downstream industries and fluctuating input costs are threatening inventory levels and profitability. As a result, chemical production planning must become smarter.

Replan is here to help. Our production planning solution can help you transform and optimise your supply chain management in the face of complex sources of disruption.

Streamlining supply chain planning

With Replan you can optimise service levels while respecting operational and technical constraints, such as clean downs and changeovers. Using intelligent automation, Replan empowers you to run multiple scenarios in a matter of minutes, optimising production output and allowing you to flexibly respond to constantly changing supply and demand situations. 

Replan integrates seamlessly with your core systems, adding an essential layer of intelligence that streamlines and transforms the planning process. From source to delivery, Replan has you covered with AI-generated group plans and rapid scenario modelling.

Key benefits for the chemicals industry

Increased supply chain resilience

Using intelligent automation, Replan maximises production output, flexibility, and resilience by generating a dynamic production sequence that’s fully responsive to changing business conditions.

Maximise production throughput

Optimise utilisation of bottleneck resources while balancing demand satisfaction, cost, and inventory considerations.

Faster scenario modelling

Empower planners to anticipate and respond to disruption faster and more confidently by running multiple scenarios simultaneously.

Resolve constraints quicker

Access and visualise real-time data on demand for capacity, inventory and cost to rapidly understand the impact of any changes on production planning KPIs.

Explore our core capabilities

Detailed digital twin to optimise production plans  

Enhance your chemical production planning with real-time virtual representation.

Connect seamlessly with major ERP systems to automatically capture the realities of your manufacturing lines.

Create authentic scenarios in just a few clicks with support for aggregate groups or group planning and alignment with operational and S&OP plans, giving you unprecedented clarity over your chemical supply chain management.

Configurable rules and objectives to improve planning predictability

Stabilise your chemical supply chain planning with smart production and planning rules seamlessly embedded in dynamic or fixed repeating sequences. 

Easily manage business logic, constraints and goals from one place. No coding, no customisation and no PhD necessary! Democratise planning across the organisation, empowering your entire team to execute complex interdependent rules fast and accurately.  

Set and adjust priorities and compare the outcomes, finding the sequence that best fits your objectives.

Fast scenarios for rapid production planning 

Banish time-consuming, manual model dependency from your formula once and for all!

Simulate at will to connect demand forecasts and capacity availability at super-speed, enabling instantaneous scenario planning.

Seamlessly refresh chemical production plans with data from SAP, IBP or APO, or any ERP, and clone and modify inputs to determine short-term and long-term impact.

Optimisation algorithm library to improve efficiency 

Automatically apply the right AI algorithm to your chemical supply chain planning and demand forecasting to gain full control. 

The choice is yours: whether your priority is optimising changeover times to maximise output efficiency, or balancing changeover and inventory, you can freely accent, reject, or edit the optimiser’s recommendations.

Intelligent automation to streamline production planning

Automate mundane manual processes with guided flows and analytics. 

Seamlessly integrate AI automation and workflow capabilities to quickly understand and respond to the implications of events on your chemical supply chain.

Supercharge your production planning flexibility with intelligent automation. Easily use different batch sizes for the same product on different lines, or across different attributes, such as colours for paint.
