About LeanDNA

Supply chain leaders around the world share a mission to reduce inventory and improve on-time delivery performance. They are doing this in a rapidly evolving supply chain environment, with ever-changing customer demands, globalization, and increasing complexity of supplier relationships. Every leader is throwing money at the problem by bringing in consultants or creating custom reports, which don’t deliver sustainable change.

Supply chain leaders use LeanDNA to proactively optimize their inventory. Utilizing predictive—and prescriptive—analytics, professionals across the supply chain (from the manager of a team of buyers through to the global executive) utilize LeanDNA to:

  • Know the health of your entire supply chain organization: dig deeper into every site with one single view
  • Determine the best price for every part of all sites and effectively negotiate with suppliers
  • Alleviate shortages at one site with excess inventory from a sister site utilizing cross-site collaboration
  • Every site keeps the ERP they already have, while you see all data and reports in one cohesive view
  • Prioritized task recommendations create a streamlined environment for continuous improvement

The results that customers can expect?

  • Customers experience an average of 7% inventory reduction in the first six months
  • Implementation takes days, not weeks (or months, or years!)
  • Seamlessly integrates with any ERP system, providing data updates daily

Complex manufacturers benefit the most from our solution, including industries like aerospace, automotive, medical devices, industrial machinery, building materials, computer equipment, consumer goods appliances, plastic, furniture, and telecommunications. Our growing list of customers represent thousands of users globally, includes Triumph, Zodiac, Swenson, Daimler, Safran, Knoll, Ibis Tek, Milicron, and more.

About SimScale

SimScale is an engineering simulation platform that is revolutionizing the way engineers, designers, scientists, and students design their products. The cloud-based SimScale platform allows you to virtually test performance, optimize durability or improve the efficiency of your design long before you build a physical prototype. The platform offers an easy-to-use interface with a workflow-based approach for performing various analysis types, especially Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Thermal Simulation, making it applicable across multiple industries such as AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction), Consumer Goods, Electronics, Energy, Aerospace, Automotive, and more.

By harnessing the power of the cloud for simulation, SimScale eliminates the hurdles that accompany traditional simulation tools: high installation costs, licensing fees, deployment of high-performance computing hardware, and required updates and maintenance. Users always have the latest version of SimScale.

FAQs

    Who are the main user groups of this service?
  • Supply chain leaders at all levels for complex manufacturing companies are the core buyers and users of LeanDNA Factory Analytics. This includes supply chain managers at a site level, the buyers—and suppliers—that they manage, multi-site supply chain management, global supply chain executives, and Lean/Six Sigma Continuous Improvement leaders.

  • Does this service offer guides, tutorials and or customer support?
  • Yes, definitely! A dedicated customer success manager is assigned to every account, there is an onboarding process that includes training, and any supporting materials are available via the app. The software is intuitive and straightforward to use. Training typically includes basic orientation to how the platform is organized and then the users are off and running quickly!

  • What are some applications this service is commonly used in tandem with?
  • LeanDNA sits on top of the existing ERP within the factory. We have built-in integrations with dozens of ERP systems, which is how we are able to launch the solution quickly for our customers. We also aggregate and link data across factories, irrespective of the underlying ERP system i.e. if one site is using Oracle and the other one is using SAP, it doesn't matter to our analytics platform, it is all brought together for a cohesive and full view.

  • What is this service generally used for?
  • To improve on-time delivery performance, reduce inventory (the typical customer experiences ~11% reduction in inventory within the first six months), and to minimize shortages. The outcome of the collaboration features includes more engaged employees and stronger supplier relationships.

  • Does this service offer multi-user capability (e.g. teams)?
  • Absolutely, not only multi-users per customer, but multi-sites per customer too.

  • Does this service offer an API?
  • Not at this time.

  • What platforms does this service support?
  • This is a SaaS-based platform, plus, there's an app available for all types of phones, which makes it accessible to anyone with an internet browser or a phone.

  • What are some applications this service is commonly used in tandem with?
  • CAD software applications.

  • What platforms does this service support?
  • SimScale is 100% cloud-based which means it is accessible from a standard web browser from any device

  • What is this service generally used for?
  • The stage when you begin to explore the design space and define your product or system concept is when the most impactful design decisions are made. It is much cheaper to virtually test your product design, system, building, equipment or hardware than to develop a physical prototype and perform field testing. Simulation is one of the tools that play a fundamental role in the early development stages of a product or application, allowing designers and engineers to predict the performance of the final solution, and as a result, reduce the risk of product/system design failure. For the business, this can mean lower production cost, reduced time-to-market, optimized performance, higher efficiency in terms of energy consumption and lower failure risk, making winning new customers easier.

  • Who are the main user groups of this service?
  • SimScale is an integral part of the design validation process for thousands of successful companies worldwide and over 100,000 individual users. It is mainly used by product designers and engineers working in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction), HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air-Conditioning), Consumer Electronics, and Packaging & Containers industries, who use SimScale for testing and optimizing their designs in the early development stages with the help of CFD, FEA, and thermal simulation.
