Kinaxis Probabilistic Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO) by Wahupa

A low-risk, low-cost entry point to advanced planning.

Optimize Inventory, Enhance Service and Lower Costs

History, averages and standard deviations have been used for years to calculate cycle and safety stocks. Patterns were predictable, but they aren’t anymore. Volatility is driving uncertainty. Companies are overcorrecting by carrying more inventory than needed — driving up costs and creating waste.

You need new math to quantify the uncertainty. Kinaxis Probabilistic Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO) by Wahupa quantifies the uncertainty and helps you trade excess inventory for free cash flow without compromising your commitment to service — so you can reach your strategic, financial and service goals while removing waste from your supply chain.

Supply planning icon

Manage underperforming service models.

Modern supply chain networks contain complex constraints not modeled in existing planning systems. Leverage precision to determine true inventory requirements across all product types, including slow-moving parts.
Inventory management icon

Differentiate service levels.

All products do not need to be stocked equally. Determine how to achieve the optimal service level for individual products without excess inventory.
Supply Chain - Optimization Icon

Find the right tool for the right system.

Apply the right levers to maximize the potential of your inventory. Mix. Staging. Postponement. Different tools for different industries for optimal results.
Predictive Analysis icon

Forecast the unforecastable.

Manage a non-normal distribution to determine the actual demand to make predictions, which allows for previously “unforecastable” long-tail items to contribute maximum margin.
Analytics reporting icon

Balance competing objectives.

Balance service objectives against competing business goals through optimization to determine the trade-off between inventory and service level and create a unique curve for each product and location to determine the best mix.
Recurring Savings
