What If Scenario Planning

The Risk

The ‘What If’ Scenario Planning capability of I-Plan protects your business from known and unknown risks that may emerge at any time. These can range from unexpected growth in demand to sudden political or economic changes.

Lora Cecere, founder and CEO of Supply Chain Insights and former Gartner Analyst, wrote that “only thirty percent of companies have ‘What-if Capabilities’. This is a primary driver of agility.”

Our Solution

Without the ability to model multiple scenarios where there are risks to your supply chain, however improbable those risks may seem, you will lack the flexibility to balance demand and supply in unpredictable trading conditions.

This inflexibility impacts inventory levels, financial planning, production scheduling and bottom-line profitability.

I-Plan solves these problems. It enables contingency planning, network rationalisation and investment appraisal.

The solution begins during our initial consultation process where we take the time to identify the effect on your supply chain of a wide range of possible events ranging from machine breakdowns or problems with the supply of raw materials to adverse weather conditions. These risks evolve and I-Plan maps this evolution to protect weaknesses in your supply chain from impacting your strategic objectives.
