Distribution Module

Predicts supply-demand gaps within the 0-to-12-week execution window for finished goods distribution, prioritizes risks based on Value at Risk, and makes the optimal shipment actions to improve fill rates at lower costs.

The promise of AI, delivered

When planning systems break down on the execution horizon in the face of everyday volatility, distribution planners pick up the slack by weeding through thousands of alerts and manually making updates to systems.

With the Noodle.ai Inventory Flow Distribution Module, planners get a completely new predictive view into supply-demand imbalances at the SKU-Distribution Center-Week level, prioritized based on cost to the business, or Value at Risk (VAR). The Distribution Module automatically resolves financial risk through optimal execution-horizon allocation and expedited actions. Planners easily understand the full decision context across the network, along with the financial impact of all corrections.
