LLamasoft SummerCon is the only conference in the world focused on supply chain design.

Houston, TX. June 7th, 2017 – Spinnaker, the focused provider of supply chain consulting services, announced today their participation at LLamasoft’s SummerCon Supply Chain Design conference being held from June 12th to 16th at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. LLamasoft’s annual conference will join supply chain executives, managers, and analysts from around the globe at the only conference in the world focused on supply chain design.


As a LLamasoft Partner since 2009, Spinnaker will exhibit at the conference as a Platinum Sponsor and lead several sessions during the conference. Spinnaker’s Vice President of Supply Chain Design, Nick Hamm, will be in attendance along with George Fowler, Vice President of Integrated Planning Systems for Spinnaker. Nick has led more than 75 supply chain network and inventory studies helping clients to model and optimize their supply chains leading to major improvements in cost, service, and risk mitigation. Prior to joining Spinnaker, Nick was the first employee of LLamasoft and spent 8 years helping launch Supply Chain Guru and leading key client initiatives.


In addition to sponsoring the event, Spinnaker will co-teach a pre-conference training course on Monday focused on integrating LLamasoft products with SAP and on Thursday, Nick and George are presenting a session on Spinnaker’s approach to helping our customers implement integrated supply chain design and planning-by-design capabilities with LLamasoft. They will discuss how the demands of an ever-changing business environment have brought about the need for a new business model of integrated supply chain solutions that blur the lines between the traditional notions of design and planning. As leading companies include repeatable supply chain design processes in their strategic planning and S&OP cycles, solutions like LLamasoft are becoming integrated in every sense of the word. Spinnaker will provide an overview of how they help clients implement repeatable, integrated LLamasoft solutions supporting both supply chain design and S&OP/planning business needs.


Join us at Booth #3 to discuss how Spinnaker can assist in all your supply chain design initiatives!
