What To Expect from Best-in-Class Sourcing Optimization Technology and User Design (Part 3) [PRO]

James Thew/Adobe Stock

So far in our series on sourcing optimization (see Part 1 and Part 2), we’ve covered how the intersections of specialized technology capability and user design must come together to support a best-in-class experience. Specifically, we’ve fleshed out the following areas by describing what is important to look for (or build) into a solution on both a functional and user experience perspective: constraint support, mathematical foundations, cost modeling, e-sourcing and reverse auction integration approaches, guided sourcing and automatic missing data and outlier identification. Today we turn our attention to how world-class sourcing optimization capability can address the automatic identification of unsatisfiable constraints and the tricks of the trade to fix them.
