ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench is based on an operative data model. That allows the simulation of times series, which may exceed the individually defined limitation. Thus, in addition to standard Make-or-buy Simulation, currency transactions or securing raw material deposits can be included in the optimization.
While Make-or-Buy actually requires a preliminary decision, the hedging-option allows – depending on the production technology used – more flexible reaction on unforeseen market changes. With changing conditions, the abandonment of hedge-options qualifies as an additional opportunity.
Multiple what-if-scenarios can be calculated simultaneously and resulting key figures can be compared in order to determine the most suitable variation.
