Join us to learn how FICO customers are using Xpress Insight, a scalable, dynamic, and powerful optimization platform for overcoming the most complex business challenges across the entire supply chain lifecycle.

This free, one-day event will include multiple presentations and easy-to-understand technology demonstrations. There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and network with peers and a select group of FICO optimization experts experienced in using advanced analytics for supply chain and manufacturing. Breakfast and lunch are included, courtesy of FICO.

What you’ll receive at this event:

1. An interactive overview of how FICO Xpress Insight incorporates data and analytics technology to maximize decision execution and automation.

2. An introduction to Supply Chain Solver, our latest Xpress Insight solution:
• As an accelerator solution, Supply Chain Solver comes with what-if analysis and user management capabilities, a built-in data repository, load balancing,
security and other critical, enterprise-ready features.
• Plus, it offers the flexibility to tailor solutions to specific business requirements—meaning users don’t have to fit their work into a one-app-fits-all box.

3. Real-world examples from several of our FICO Xpress Optimization customers, including:
Inventory Management:
• Challenge: Managing high-cost component inventories during volatile product demand cycles.
• Results: Seamless data integration with existing ERP systems, no workarounds required; significant reduction of component inventories without affecting
desired service levels.

Distribution Planning:
• Challenge: Lack of a consistent and coherent view of distribution plans; difficulty meeting SLAs because of last minute conflicts.
• Results: Ability to adequately address tradeoffs regarding SLAs and customer satisfaction; complete perspective of long-term operating plans, allowing
more lead time for managing disruption; 75% reduction in time-to-market solution delivery, compared to the traditional IT-driven approach.

Network Design:
• Challenge: Inadequate computational resources for measuring the full impact of any investment across all of the company’s complex supply chains.
• Results: Answers in minutes rather than months, and at a greater degree of accuracy; interactive dashboards and network graphs that facilitate data input,
visualization, and multiple simultaneous scenario comparisons.

Production Planning:
• Challenge: Out-of-the-box tools that fall short of production and resource planning needs, as well as real-time plant opening and transportation decision
• Results: Projected 10% improvement on controllable supply chain costs; intuitive UI: simple and quick for what-if analyses of changing conditions, but also
customizable for specific business rules (e.g., adding tables and columns); optimized solutions obtained within seconds, compared to minutes from
competitor applications; customized data importing and exporting features that use client's specific data files and formats.
