The Project Challenges:
Armada was encountering issues regarding warehouse storage facilities and visibility of the supply chain processes. The client needed Visvero to address the following concerns:
  • Need to maintain full visibility of all the food items in storage at various warehouse locations across the US
  • Constraints include the warehouse facility, such as cold storage as well as the items stored, e.g. fish, poultry, meats etc. And the item shelf life.
  • Reduce replenishment time/cost at the restaurant level.
Visvero's Solutions Approach:

Visvero developed a system-wide master data platform including extended supply chain partners – initially using Golden Gate and later Denodo platform. We developed various dashboard applications for browser based and mobile platform consumption using Spotfire. Other approaches to address the challenges were:

  • Used simple Weights & Biases based optimization model
  • Implemented SpotFire / R for dashboarding and analytics presentation.
Overall Performance & Results:

With effective implementation of the above solution, Armada quickly accomplished the desired goals of effectively managing the entire storage till production and distribution process:

  • Reduced 2 warehouses.
  • Using the COTS core reduced the cost of software development.
  • Extended the application to Pentaho CE and Python to further reduce the application ongoing maintenance costs.
