Optiant Inc. has announced the release of PowerChain Summit, an analytics software product it says will allow manufacturing companies' leadership teams to determine the impact of various supply-chain strategies on overarching business objectives. It moves "the power of supply-chain design from operations to the leadership team," according to the Boston-based technology provider. According to Optiant, the solution:

  • provides visibility across global supply networks, highlighting interdependencies and potential negative ripple effects caused by particular decisions;
  • weighs and prioritizes multiple supply-chain initiatives, employing real-world constraints such as shared resources, budgets, service-level agreements; and
  • recommends the most desirable and profitable supply-chain opportunities.
Web-based PowerChain Summit can operate entirely as a stand-alone product or -- for those who want to move from the strategy level to the operational level -- may be integrated with the remainder of the PowerChain suite or other systems. PowerChain Summit should ship by mid-December, privately held Optiant says.
