Oil and gas companies often carry excess industrial component inventory to address uncertainties in operations or demand. This often manifests as excess inventory of industrial parts and equipment to prevent unplanned downtime. Many downstream manufacturers also carry large inventories of industrial components to prevent stock-outs or to offer better lead times and flexibility to customers. Over the years, companies have deployed Material Requirements Planning (MRP.）支持规划和自动库存管理的软件解决方案。但是，大多数MRP软件解决方案都没有设计通过从数据中不断学习来优化工业组件库存水平。
Increase visibility into critical energy-sector uncertainties such as seasonality, uncertainty in arrivals, potential quality issues with suppliers, transportation bottlenecks and production-line disruptions.
提高organizational efficiency of industrial operations through a common view across various departments (e.g., material management, supplier management, logistics management), leading to optimized inventory of industrial parts and equipment that is aligned with organizational goals.
Minimize total landed costs of industrial component inventory that include standard and expedited shipping costs, as a result of reduced inventory in the supply chain.
BHC3库存优化聚合数据BHC3™ AI Suitefrom different disparate source systems including production orders (actuals and planned), product configurations, bills of material, inventory movements (e.g., arrivals from suppliers, consumption in a production line, intra- and inter-facility shipments), historical settings of reorder parameters, lead time and shipping costs from suppliers, and part-level costs for each location where industrial component inventory is maintained.
BHC3 Inventory Optimization factors in several real-world uncertainties including variability in demand, supplier delivery times, quality issues with industrial parts delivered by suppliers, and production line disruptions. The application uses machine learning to analyze variability, dynamically and continually optimize reorder parameters, and minimize industrial part and equipment inventory holding and shipping costs for each item.
