Network Design

Network Design

The discipline of supply chain network design is used to determine the optimal location and size of facilities and the flow through the facilities.

Some experts suggest that 80% of the costs of the supply chain are locked in with the location of the facilities and the determination of the optimal flows of product between them.

Companies that have not evaluated their supply chain in several years or those that have a new supply chain through acquisitions can expect to to reduce long-term transportation, warehousing, and other supply chain costs from 5% to 15% by reviewing their network design.

However, the problem with network design is that it is complex.
