Visualise the Problem – and the Solution
Regardless of whether they are viewed in-tool, in reports, or integrated with analysis tools, configurations and results can be accessed simply and easily. As it is flexible enough to let you customise the application to your preferences, Plan guarantees the consistency of data and workflow across teams.
In addition, it works smoothly with Supply Chain Scheduling and Enterprise Crude Knowledge Management for the sharing of assays, share topology, as well as share results. This unification decreases the loss of knowledge in data transfer while accelerating common workflows and facilitating communication across the value chain.
Manage Risk and Uncertainty
Good decision-making means comprehending the uncertainty of the choices you make. Whether through traditional case stacking or through revolutionary analytics, Plan enables the easy and rapid exploration of all business options. You can integrate various prices, different demand forecasts – or any other set of uncertain information – to compare alongside economics, so allowing for more confident decision-making.
In-tool or online users can share results and analyse scenarios fast, with complete feedback to understand, share and communicate results across the entire business.
Fast Decisions = Fast Reactions
Users require answers fast, whether from small, “what-if?” scenarios or from massive, robust analytics. Plan scales its calculations to deliver results rapidly. This allows users more time to analyse and understand the solution, as opposed to configuring and running the problem. It enables individuals to quickly analyse, modify and explore rapidly changing operations and markets.
It’s Not Just About Planning, But Prediction, Too
The future always remains uncertain. To pinpoint the best operating strategy amidst uncertainties, you are required to examine the various possibilities. With its simple and standard reports and visualisations to help users understand and compare solutions, Plan makes it easy to set up massive analytics for interrogating different possibilities.
Empower users with the tools and information they require in order to explore and collaborate around constantly changing markets and operations.
Build and Track Process Models
During planning, sound decisions can only be made from accurate models. Process Model Management, as part of Spiral Suite, enables users to maintain, adapt and tune their plant representations, so increasing model accuracy as well as helping to improve margins.
With fast creation, fast validation and fast sharing, Process Model Management assists in ensuring more consistent and more accurate planning and scheduling, so improving margins and operational understanding.
