Optilogic, a supply chain company based in Ann Arbor, has released its next-generation software that allows organizations to design supply chain networks in a cloud-native environment that will enable businesses to evaluate trade-offs across financial performance, service, and systemic risk to predict the best designs.

“The launch of Cosmic Frog marks a new era for supply chain technology and the supply chain design field,” says Donald A. Hicks, president, CEO, and founder of Optilogic. “It’s the end of the previous path and a new starting point to move beyond optimization and into design as a strategic capability to keep companies alive and thriving in the most challenging, dynamic environments.”

Hicks says the Cosmic Frog solution enables optimization, simulation, and risk analysis across an end-to-end supply chain in a single platform, equipping businesses to make more informed decisions beyond just cost. And by providing a risk rating on every scenario run, Cosmic Frog helps companies proactively minimize risk and volatility.

Traditional supply chain design technologies have complex user interfaces, require costly capital and IT investment, and have lengthy implementation processes. Hicks says Optilogic’s software is a cloud-native, intuitive solution that can tackle enterprise data at scale, run models faster than ever, convert legacy models quickly, and be implemented with ease.

“We had an overall lack of knowledge of our supply chain network,” says Brett Barnello, chief supply chain officer at AmerCareRoyal. “We really didn’t understand what our true cost drivers were or where we were winning and losing. Our service implications weren’t really known. This was where Optilogic’s use of optimization and simulation allowed us to get a true understanding and to design our network towards our future growth ambitions.”
