Deploying the right resources to the right places at the right time, fully supported and sustained, is a highly complex operation. Miscalculations have severe consequences on force capability. There is a need to plan all support operations, from long term force planning through deployment to mission execution, to ensure supplies and equipment are available for active units. Efficient logistics is a key force multiplier in the military equation.
Defence Supply Chain Planning & Optimization
Typically, commercial software does not fit military applications without making compromises. The business drivers are focused more on operational cost savings and less on speed of response and economy of force. The alternative to developing custom software carries the overhead of extended timeframes and cost with no long term support roadmap, and can be difficult to adjust when the procedural or operational landscapes change.
Additionally, creating an optimized plan that schedules vehicle movements at the same time each day is also not acceptable in hostile environments.
We solve every single planning and scheduling problem using a single standard, commercially-off-the-shelf software package. Exact business logic and rules are defined in the system to ensure a 100% operational fit. No compromise.
Areas of defence operations planning include:
- Deployment planning
- Movement planning
- Re-supply planning
- Flight & crew planning
Quintiq can take into account all the elements of the plan in a single environment. Multiple planning levels are supported as well as multi-resource planning. If you would like to know more about our Defence Logistics solutions, please download the Quintiq Defence Logistics Brochure.
