Maine Pointe's Capacity Optimization Model (COM)

Our Remote Site Services team collaborated with the client to develop and implement a customized Capacity Optimization Model (COM). The model produces facility utilization plans that are formulated from the demands of the business units, coupled with the contracted and owned room supply.

An accompanying COM tool integrates key data points to support enterprise-wide performance monitoring of numerous variables and facilitation of appropriate, timely actions regarding supply levels, utilization, cost, quality, and customer service.

To build this client's version of the tool, over 2.5 million records were collected in a centralized repository for advanced data and analytics. Maine Pointe dramatically raised the bar on the standardization of inputs as well as the protocols for querying information and collating data. With transparency and quantifiable metrics, analysts can perform some 55 unique functions to validate assumptions and produce a proof of concept for a direction on how they are going to change their business. In essence, the tool delivers a roadmap to a future state, embedding innovation into the logistics strategy.

The tool also drives collaboration across functional teams – from the business units and supply chain management to the personnel handling the operator contracts.

In developing the COM, our RSS team has produced:

  • Business requirements for the model
  • Functional and technical specifications
  • Documentation on logic/algorithms/functions
  • A table design, user acceptance testing, the user interface, and validation
  • A procedure manual (including how to change input variables)
  • A technology road map for migrating elements into a client approved environment
  • Code, data, the database design and functionality
