The term Process refers to industrial sectors such as: Food & Beverage, Chemical and Pharmaceutical.
In all these sectors, it is fundamental to find the right trade-off between the need for customer satisfaction in terms of timeliness, quality and product renovation, as well as inventory optimization, taking into account perishability and seasonality constraints. It is important to pay close attention to the logistical and distribution system, which are usually very complex, fragmented, and characterized by a network of production plants, sales branches, distribution warehouses and suppliers. The main goal of every company in the Process Industry is flexibility, which is achieved by improving and coordinating business processes, but also through the adoption of extremely complex and agile tools. The primary objective of the sedApta Suite is to provide decision support to companies in this sector at the global supply chain (and not merely plant) level.
