Global network planning and simulation

Designing worldwide logistics networks

Successful companies constantly check the structure of their global locations and assign products, technologies and investments in a targeted manner to these locations. Over and above this, they contemplate between centralized governance and local autonomy and ultimately set up manufacturing and logistics at new locations (best-cost countries).

In doing so, certain core issues need to be addressed:

  • What are the optimal manufacturing and distribution locations?
  • How are the locations networked and how can economies of scale be utilized?
  • Which are the procurement clusters and centers that are meaningful at present and for the future?
  • To what extent would there be vertical integration in the supply chain and what are the consequences of the make or buy decisions resulting from this?
  • How can regions with a comparatively low cost level of manufacturing factors be integrated into the supply chain taking the benefits and risks into consideration?
  • What does the ideal "footprint" of the locations look like, what are the competences and resources available there and where are various products going to be manufactured?
