Make-or-Buy or Hedge Simulation

ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench is based on an operative data model. That allows the simulation of times series, which may exceed the individually defined limitation. Thus, in addition to standard Make-or-buy Simulation, currency transactions or securing raw material deposits can be included in the optimization.

While Make-or-Buy actually requires a preliminary decision, the hedging-option allows – depending on the production technology used – more flexible reaction on unforeseen market changes. With changing conditions, the abandonment of hedge-options qualifies as an additional opportunity.

Multiple what-if-scenarios can be calculated simultaneously and resulting key figures can be compared in order to determine the most suitable variation.
