Analyse What-Ifs

Plan for the unexpected or rapidly create the optimal response when change inevitably occurs.

Identify Opportunities

BMA’s embedded financial intelligence represents costs as they actually occur versus simply taking an average.

Evaluate Risk

There’s no such thing as perfect data. BMA allows you to analyse the impact of uncertainty on your business and create risk-tolerant plans.

Users can define and apply different probability distributions to critical model variables like resource reliability, demand, currency exchange rates, input costs etc.

This approach to modeling risk enables users to analyse the impact of unpredictable events on operational and financial performance while simultaneously optimizing the company’s response.

Prescribe Execution

Prescriptive Analytics translates a forecast into a feasible plan for the business, and helps users identify the best steps to implement.

Optimisation supports ongoing operational, tactical and strategic business planning; it leverages linear programming to identify the best outcome for a business, given constraints and objective function. When applied to broader tactical (e.g. S&OP or Integrated Business Planning) or strategy planning scenarios, the optimisation model is used to calculate the impact of various forecasts on the business. It does so while also taking into account operational realities in the form of constraints.
