Many of the world’s most recognizable brands depend on X-ACT® to help them optimize opportunities and comprehensively control risks across diverse business and operational systems.
Financial services and insurance companies use X-ACT to rate risk, head off problems and develop new opportunities. Creating, testing and building assets, processes, products and services in a virtual environment before implementing in production allows users to test different scenarios to identify the right path forward. For example, X-ACT is used to find problems that other analytic investments miss. Also, the insights from X-ACT help business leaders and operational teams agilely respond to changing market demands and make the right trade-offs between conflicting cost, scalability and performance objectives.
Electricity, water, waste water and gas suppliers use X-ACT to answer complex questions that traditional simulation tools can’t. For example, X-ACT can help determine the impact of changing consumer demands, aging infrastructure and environmental factors over time. Another question X-ACT can help answer is, “What’s the best way to manage network costs versus performance?” And, “How do we achieve mandated climate protection targets without passing any significant costs on to customers?”
Logistics and transportation companies use X-ACT to ensure the continuous efficiency of supply chains. By creating an end-to-end digital twin of all supply chain components and time dependencies, X-ACT is able to find potential points of failure and expose the root cause of bottlenecks that other supply chain management tools miss. Using X-ACT to test different scenarios helps users find the best-fit solutions, agilely respond to changing market demands and identify opportunities for improvements.
Manufacturers use X-ACT to master agility, improve productivity and cut costs. By creating an end-to-end digital twin of all production processes, X-ACT users can find the best way to balance competing cost, volume and quality objectives. This includes the adoption of new automation and artificial intelligence technologies, implementation of just in time systems and management of quality assurance programs. For example, manufacturers use X-ACT to overcome the challenges of custom manufacturing by virtually testing hundreds of scenarios to quickly identify the best way to design, engineer and produce goods based on a customer’s unique specifications.
Hospitals, healthcare networks and government organizations use X-ACT to manage healthcare costs, evaluate the impact of planned changes and find better ways of operating. By creating an end-to-end digital twin of all healthcare system components and time dependencies, X-ACT helps decision makers find the best-fit solutions. For example, hospitals have used X-ACT to identify opportunities to cut costs without reducing the quality of care. In the case of Covid-19, X-ACT was used for pandemic preparedness planning and to evaluate the effectiveness of various containment strategies.
Retailers use X-ACT to meet changing market demands and identify the best balance between competing cost, volume and quality objectives. This includes the evaluation of new technologies, implementation of just in time systems and supply chain management. For example, retailers use X-ACT to overcome inventory management and cost containment challenges by virtually testing hundreds of scenarios to quickly identify the best way to improve margins and scale to deliver more goods in less time.
Executives use X-ACT to gain better visibility across complex business and operational ecosystems and know how to rapidly react to changing market dynamics, competitive conditions and strategies fast enough to succeed.
Architects use X-ACT to replicate the end-to-end dynamics of highly complex business processes, systems and infrastructure to confidently build target plans that align with stakeholders’ needs and deliver the promised results in real world environments.
Operational teams use X-ACT to continuously deliver operational excellence and agilely respond to changing business requirements by pinpointing the root cause of stability problems and proactively managing change programs to ensure the best possible results.
Engineers use X-ACT to know how services will actually perform in high volume, high performance and complex end-to-end environments and proactively identify opportunities to increase operational stability, improve agility and cut costs.
Organizations use X-ACT to clearly identify when and which actions should be taken to support the continuous cost effectiveness of operations. X-ACT helps users pinpoint the cause of inefficiencies across organizational silos and identify the best way to improve the efficiency, cost and throughput of various assets, processes, products or services.
X-ACT helps supply chain stakeholders achieve better preparedness and transparency to control risks and avoid major supply chain disruptions. With X-ACT digital twin technologies and scenario analysis, supply chain stakeholders can identify potential points of failure, evaluate options for improvements and make decisions with full confidence in the outcome.
When considering a disruptive move, X-ACT scenario analysis capabilities help decision makers validate the best course of actions, associated costs and expected outcomes. As transformation programs evolve, X-ACT exposes any project risks and insures that the implementation conforms to the promises made during the early stages of project definition.
Infrastructure teams use X-ACT to head off problems, optimize the use of assets, develop new opportunities and plan for the future. With a virtual model that covers the lifecycle of all assets or processes, product or services, users of X-ACT can understand the present and predict the future. Armed with this knowledge, decision makers can quickly act with confidence in the outcome. For example, infrastructure teams use X-ACT to improve productivity and know when and how to replace aging assets.
Through benchmarking companies seek to compare their business processes or performance metrics to competitors or other industries. Speed, quality, quantity and cost are the most common dimensions of the comparison that allow companies to explore how their own results compare to best in class companies.
X-ACT helps users uncover and manage risks that traditional rating models miss. By creating a digital twin of all assets, processes, products and services, users of X-ACT can understand which scenarios will lead to unwanted outcomes and accurately quantify the risk of any project or activity. For example, people use X-ACT to validate whether the adoption of innovative technologies will meet project objectives. Also, organizations use X-ACT to assess the financial, regulatory, operational, environmental or safety risk/reward of any deal.
