More About LION

Offered through a SaaS (software as a service) subscription model, LION modules are easy to deploy, and can be configured within days. LION includes the following modules.

  • Demand Aggregation. Aggregates demand data from sources including forecasting tools, ERP systems, and spreadsheets, and from different customer part numbers to a single internal part number; performs what-if analysis based on the multiple algorithms available, picks the best-fit, and shares it with planners inside or outside of the organization.
  • Lean Planning. Accurately drives reorder point (ROP) using business rules based on proprietary, industry-leading, lean methodology algorithms; performs what-if simulations by changing key parameters such as demand, CT2R, SIS or service levels and evaluates results before establishing ROP thresholds; and creates multiple inventory-sizing rules to address different business needs.
  • Decision Center. Presents all key dataROPs, SISs, consumption patterns, and forecastsin one central dashboard. Role-based data visibility ensures the right information is visible to the right people in the right context.
  • Lean Triggering. Alerts users that parts need to be procured to meet the ROP levels defined in the Lean Planning module settings; recommends trigger quantities by comparing the on-hand, open purchase order quantities against the ROP levels, and by considering minimum order quantity (MOQ) and minimum packing quantity (MPQ) values.
  • B2B Hub. Connects to all major corporate systems, such as ERP, CRM, SCM and PLM, and supports both automated and ad-hoc data uploading into LION.
