Chiron's flagship product, i-Lean, is a logistics
modeling and design tool built for warehousing, manufacturing, and retail
environments. It employs a pull methodology used in conjunction with a lean
inventory management strategy within a distribution or manufacturing facility.
is accomplished by integrating dozens of variables
to generate inventory management solutions down to the stock-keeping unit
(SKU) level. In addition to deriving operational recommendations, i-Lean lays out
the cost components of each solution. The application establishes the foundation for
a warehouse management system implementation, and supports long-term inventory
management maintenance programs. Using product demand, volumetrics, vendor lead time,
material handling costs, and additional variables, i-Lean can make recommendations
for material flows, inventory levels, and storage media types. It can also
recommend cycle and safety stock levels along with bin sizes, as well as
provide slotting recommendations. Annual operating costs can be recommended, and
what-if comparisons of the costs and benefits of different inventory
management strategies are supported.The results of an analysis run can be used in the Warehouse Design and
Slotting Analysis features of i-Lean. These features use demand or actual
ordering statistics for each part (such as order frequency or average order
size) to recommend how a warehouse should be zoned, and how each part should be
