Arkieva has designed its Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO) module as a comprehensive tool to calculate these safety stock targets. It takes into account demand and lead time variability at each echelon and node and uses a sophisticated algorithm to calculate the targets in a multi-echelon way. It also enables scenarios and allows comparison of these scenarios with each other. This module combines advanced MEI capabilities with the data management, analytics, and reporting engine within the Arkieva Software.

Optimize Inventory Targets Across Multiple Locations

Inevitably, global or national business is forced to hold inventory at different locations. Inventory management becomes increasingly complex when you must ensure that the optimal inventory is kept at the right location and at the right time.

Identifying if your business operates as a single-echelon or multi-echelon business is essential to selecting the right inventory optimization strategy and solution.

Is My Business a Single-Echelon or Multi-Echelon Network?

Multi Echelon

Inventory levels at each material-location combination have an impact on the required inventory at other levels

Operated through a distribution network (Plant/DC/Warehouse), as well as, a manufacturing network

Operated using more advanced methodologies to ensure optimization across multiple locations

Single Echelon

Individual material-location combination is not affected by any other material or location

Products are usually sold from a single location

Usually operated using traditional safety stock methodologies
