Spiral Suite supply chain management software from Schneider Electric is designed to help workers from one end of the supply chain to the other make reliable decisions and manage risks. Courtesy: Schneider ElectricSchneider Electric's Spiral Suite platform is designed to help traders, planners and schedulers make reliable decisions, and manage risks throughout the supply chain.

Spiral Suite users can contribute to and add value to one another's decision making without the risk of overwriting data or causing downstream processing issues at the plant. The visualizations allow everyone to view, understand, and respond to incidents. All refinery activities are supported within a single, highly intuitive environment, and accurate, up-to-date information is available across the business. Planners can see future scheduling constraints; schedulers can assess their decisions against commercial impact and operational feasibility. 

Spiral Suite's SaaS deployment model, off-the-shelf integration and exceptional ease of use mean the application can be learned within days. Legacy point solutions can be replaced quickly and simply, without incurring the high cost of implementing or maintaining data transfer. Inadequate, unsupported integration bridges are removed, as is the need for application experts and extensive training courses, which lowers total cost of ownership. Data from in-house and external systems can be made available automatically within workflows, and people from across the business can work in parallel to build the supply chain model within weeks, without needing to know matrix math.

Users can explore the business and operational implications of millions of scenarios and receive real-time feedback on how their changes would impact the rest of the supply chain. The software also automatically reconciles all available data and performs backcasting to understand how and why there are deviations to the plan.
