The Bosch Group consists of the Robert Bosch GmbH as well as about 440 subsidiaries and regional companies in 60 countries. In designing optimised logistic structures for the supply of production plants as well as for distribution, amongst other things for automobile parts to leading automobile manufacturers, Bosch depends on PSIglobal. The strategic planning and optimisation software combines targeted operative data for management analysis. With the integrated scenario technology, processes and transport chains of multi-phase and multi-modal supply chains can be designed and the primary parameters and sensitivities identified.

With the implementation of the PSI standard software, Bosch employees can visualise and optimise supply streams as well as production and storage sites around the world. This also includes support in the allocation of new products to existing production sites, taking production and transport costs into consideration.

As early as the test phase, the staff at Bosch was intensively trained by PSI, so as to be able to optimally use the multitude of system functions. For the purpose of additionally supporting the complex planning tasks, PSI also performed an after-sales service including web sessions.
