Profit Suite was created by Bayer using the AIMMS platform to process large amounts of diverse information such as market demand, profitability and manufacturing capabilities. In a rapidly changing global economy, the available response time is decreasing, and this led to the need for a decision support application that provides – in an efficient and accurate manner – the information and insight needed by Product Management to manage their multi-product portfolios effectively.

The Profit Suite Mixed Integer Program model captures the complete supply chain, accounting for intermediate and raw materials and the capacity utilization income from each candidate product portfolio. It is a full life-cycle tool for managing Bayer’s complex data input from ERP systems and other analysis tools.
