ToolsGroup, a supply chain optimization software designer, and River Logic, Inc., an innovator in network design and optimization, announced that Cornerstone Building Brands has created a new platform for end-to-end value chain optimization.

Cornerstone said that two of its business units — Aperture Solutions U.S., which produces residential windows and doors, and Shelter Solutions, which manufactures metal roof and wall systems — chose ToolsGroup and RiverLogic’s technology solutions to achieve its business objectives and strategies.

“By combining River Logic’s advanced supply chain network design and its corresponding financial analytics capabilities with ToolsGroup’s demand planning, inventory optimization and planning capabilities, our facilities can now benefit from an all-inclusive supply chain planning solution,” said Christopher Gonzales, vice president of operations and supply chain for Cornerstone Building Brands’ Shelter Solutions business unit. “The combined team identified strategic integration opportunities that empower us to leverage unique modeling approaches. The visualization and scenario planning of the physical and financial value chain overlaid with a digital representation of the actual flow of goods enables us to utilize longer-term strategic supply chain design variations and optimize inventory and service levels.”

ToolsGroup’s solutions are positioned to help retailers, distributors and manufacturers navigate uncertainty in the supply chain. Its retail and supply chain planning suites help in intelligent decision-making and improve forecast accuracy.

“Our robust partner ecosystem enables us to provide end-to-end supply chain solutions for customers like Cornerstone Building Brands,” said ToolsGroup CEO Inna Kuznetzova. “Integrating the ToolsGroup supply chain planning solution with the RiverLogic network design and optimization solution enables Cornerstone to model alternative value chain models and measure the impact on network-wide inventory and service levels, driving greater resiliency and profitability across the organization.”

River Logic is a global supply chain strategy and planning company helping businesses across industries make complex trade-off decisions while optimizing growth, margin and service levels.

“Combining the River Logic value chain optimization solution with ToolsGroup’s service-driven supply chain planning capabilities brings the power of extended network design, strategic financial planning and operational supply chain simulation to Cornerstone Building Brands,” said Carlos Centurion, president of River Logic.

ToolsGroup and RiverLogic invite interested parties to attend the Gartner Supply Chain Symposium on May 6-8 in Orlando, Florida, where Gonzales will present his story live on Monday afternoon. Book a meeting here.
