Supply Chain

Sourcing

The entire set of business processes required to purchase goods and services is complex and requires the analysis of large numbers of supplier bids, business rules and business scenarios to find the best decisions. The complexity is increased by bundled bids, flexible bids, volume discounts, re-bids and multiple locations. Purchasing business rules may include a limit on reliance on a single vendor, preferencing suppliers (e.g. local, minority owned, or with “Green” or other credentials) or minimising the number of vendors. These combine to create problems that are too complex for humans or even most existing tools to solve.
