The Quantitative Supply Chain



The Quantitative Supply Chain represents a novel and disruptive perspective on the optimization of supply chains. It can be seen as a refoundation of many supply chain practices, in particular regarding the predictive management of stocks and prices. It has been built to make the most of the latest statistical approaches and vast computing resources that are available nowadays.

The Lokad's way of optimizing supply chains

At Lokad, we are discovering better ways of optimizing supply chains and we wish to help others do the same. Through our work, we have come to value that:

  1. All possible futures must be considered; a probability for each possibility.
  2. All feasible decisions must be considered; possibilities vs. probabilities.
  3. Economic drivers must be used to prioritize feasible decisions.
  4. Being in control requires automation of every mundane task.
  5. A supply chain scientist must take ownership of the numerical results.
