Planning in a Disruptive World

Optimize your plans in the virtual world
to succeed in the real world

We work in a world that’s being increasingly disrupted by rapidly growing populations, technology changes, mass customization, tightly regulated markets and accelerated mergers and acquisitions. To survive, thrive and remain sustainable, we need our value chains to be agile and responsive to these changes.

Today’s game-changers are those that embrace the virtual world to drive success in the physical world. Virtual technology takes you from Industry 4.0 to Industry Renaissance — from automation to value creation.

Modeling your value network in the virtual world gives you the flexibility to plan and optimize your business without being constrained by the limitations of your resources or location. With information intelligence, you can make the best decisions to effect enterprise-wide improvements in operational agility, anticipate challenges, reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction.

Join us and your peers at the DELMIA Quintiq World Tour 2019 to learn how the virtual world can help you improve operations in the real world.
