OPT Net: reduce strategic error! Design and simulate multilevel distribution networks.
OPT Net - Multi-level distribution network optimization and simulation
With OptNet you are empowered to:

Optimize and simulate your supply chain network to reposition your warehouses

Build optimal matches of demand requests and supply sources

Execute post-M&A logistics plans while reshuffling your resources

One of the most advanced multi-level distribution network optimization and simulation system, OPT Net finds the best geographic location for logistics resources (i.e., factories, warehouses, point of sales) while combining demand requests with supply sources.

With well-designed distribution networks, ACT Operations Research top performing customers save multi-million euros: it's why OPT Net goes over a static design weighing the evolving scenario of risks and opportunities while looking, in the other side, at the service levels.


Usage model
Fuelled by data, OPT Net weaves on network structures including resources' flows, their capacity, needs and constraints, building scenario of combined resources within a geographical area (e.g., stores/warehouses, warehouses/factories).

When it comes to keep transportation and handling costs at a bay or to lift productivity and stores' receptivity, ambitious companies turn to optimized supply chains. With OPT Net, ACT Operations Research customers optimize and simulate their supply chains spotting the best locations for warehouses or the perfect match to couple sources of demand/supply. This comes after an accurate cost-to-serve analysis performed along the whole supply chain where volatility and risks can also be simulated with ARENA or SIMIO simulations systems. ACT Operations Research OPT Net has been serving the needs of M&As post-transaction deals when the execution of the business plan requires a reshuffle of logistics i.e., branches merging and closures. The flexibility of OPT Net application is demonstrated also by its adoption from door-to-door sales teams while hunting new leads as well as from commands that are patroling different zones.
