SCM Solutions ScienceSoft Specializes In

We offer development services for the implementation of one or several integrated SCM solutions:  

Supply chain planning and optimization

Demand forecasting. AI-supported recommendations on supply chain optimization (e.g., how much and when to order). Supply chain digital twin – a real-time supply chain model to test different supply chain action plans (e.g., safety stock planning, transportation optimization) and evaluate their impact before choosing the best one. Value: improved and more cost-efficient fulfillment of customer demand, increased resource utilization, synchronization between different supply chain components.  

Supply chain risk management

Supply chain control tower, offering real-time, AI-supported visibility into all supply chain operations, including operations of suppliers and external carriers. Configurable dashboards for a unified view of supply chain processes and related KPIs (fill rate, order cycle time, etc.). Collaborative issue resolution with suppliers via a shared space for issue discussions, issues status tracking and notifications, etc. Value: end-to-end supply chain visibility, proactive risk management, improved collaboration with suppliers.   

Inventory and warehouse management

Inventory levels and location tracking (with barcode or RFID technology). Optimal safety stock calculation. Automated replenishment triggers. Lot and serial number tracking. Expiration dates and shelf life monitoring. Value: decreased inventory carrying costs, increased order fulfillment speed and accuracy, optimized labor costs, minimized inventory loss and shortages. 

Logistics management

Freight tracking. Planning and optimization of route schedules. Vehicle accident case management (accident notifications and reports, repair request issuing and routing, etc.). IoT connectivity to monitor product condition during transportation. Value: improved vehicle utilization, decreased logistics operating costs, on-time delivery.  

Procurement management

Quick template-based creation of purchase requisitions, RFxs, and purchase orders. Automated approval workflow for purchase requisitions and purchase orders. Analytics-based recommendations on supplier assignment to purchase orders. Creation and management of preferred supplier lists.

Supply Chain Software Development Cost Factors

To estimate the cost of supply chain management solutions, ScienceSoft takes into account the following factors:

The number and complexity of functional modules required to cover business needs. The number and complexity of integrations with corporate software, IoT devices, etc. Data volume used for analytics, the need to implement machine learning algorithms and their complexity. Required application types – web, mobile, desktop – and a number of platforms supported (for mobile apps). Data storage type (a centralized database or a private blockchain). Application availability, performance, security, and scalability requirements.
