    You have the right mix, but least cost formulation (LCF) just isn’t enough. What do you do next? Manufacturing companies using LCF solutions are unintentionally leaving money on the table. 

    This webinar will focus on ways to link extended formulation processes to production planning, inventory planning, capacity planning, and long-term supply chain planning and forecasting in order to take business decisions and successes to the next level. 

    Organizations that are recognizing the need for better-optimized alignment between formulations and end-to-end supply chain are reaping benefits such as
    • maximizing profit based on strategic material utilization
    • making smarter decisions as to when to buy or negotiate long-term contracts with suppliers
    • improving overall profitability and lowering cost because of enhanced visibility of capacity constraints within their production planning.
    Join us on May 18 to see how leaders within the manufacturing industry are using these tools to stay ahead of the curve and taking their LCF one step further. 


    Note: Registration closes at 5:00 p.m. ET on May 12. This webinar will be hosted via GoToWebinar.
