Big Blue Helps Green Supply Chain

IBM has unveiled a new analytic tool that is positioned as a carbon management analysis tool to optimize supply chain efficiencies.

The Carbon Tradeoff Modeler models the complex interaction of factors driving supply chain carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from both a manufacturing and distribution perspective. It can also quantify the tradeoffs between CO2 emissions reductions and other supply chain metrics such as inventory levels, and on-time delivery. IBM’s Carbon Management Analysis Tool also identifies areas where carbon dioxide emissions and costs can be reduced simultaneously.
