Newly-added capabilities help businesses right-size inventory levels, optimize to multiple competing business goals and minimize transportation route costs.


_Inventory Guru is an integrated third-generation inventory optimization tool within Supply Chain Guru 8.0 that enables companies to analyze and properly classify demand, factor all aspects of inventory for both existing and new supply chain structures and simulate real-world behavior. The result is a prescription for the right levels of working capital across the business that can lead to higher revenue and lower carrying costs.

_Multi-objective optimization is an integrated tool within Supply Chain Guru 8.0 that allows customers to meet business challenges that include multiple competing goals.
