The most comprehensive Operational Transformation solution for organizations seeking fresh perspectives to address complex Supply Chain challenges

PALO ALTO, Calif., November. 04, 2021 /PRNewswire/ —  ThroughPut Inc., the Industrial AI Supply Chain pioneer, today announced a partnership with Dynamic Cycle-Time Reduction Associates (DCRA) to launch their combined offering reinstating the focus to Sales, Operations, and Digitization efforts to maximize ROI and throughput. The partnership will combine ThroughPut’s Supply Chain AI engine with DCRA’s advanced, decentralized Sales and Operations Process (S&OP) algorithms to jointly enable customers to balance and synchronize the Supply and Demand Processes and identify Working Capital Improvements with visible financial result within the quarter.

The biggest challenge for industrial businesses today involves balancing Supply Lead Times with Demand Lead Times, from the production floor level up to the C-Suite. While current planning & execution systems exist to help different operational units, they do not interconnect to systematically prioritize and focus around the most value-generating efforts for the greatest returns. A capacity-constrained Demand Management System complemented by a strong decentralized Sales and Operations Process offering is the fastest way to achieve organization-wide focus and deliver positive net financial impact.

The existing data structures between DCRA & systems allow customers to balance their demand and supply simultaneously at every level of the organization without changing existing physical processes or preferred planning systems.

“We are excited to be partnering with DCRA, a firm that pioneered the supply chain technology space to fill a very large gap in the strategy and operations world, which is now more than ever so critical to address as the world’s economy reopens. DCRA’s ability to handle inventory management from a different time and different place is a considerable breakthrough.” said Ali Raza, CEO and Founder of ThroughPut Inc. “Our joint vision to unlock true human potential faster with AI will empower innovative executives to resolve their operational and financial challenges with leading technology and support from the proven operational and technology experts who invented this space.”

“We are partnering with to enable anyone in any company to see how good they can be,” said Jon Kirkegaard, founder of DCRA. “Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) is not only the most valuable enabler to improve the business performance, it is also the best enabler for faster, scalable, and systemic approaches to streamlining operations. Customers can quickly simulate the agility provided by S&OP’s in the more timely and scientific balancing of Demand and Supply, and execute upon recommendations to improve sales while lowering overall working capital and improving inventory turns.
