About Supply Chain Toolworks Inc.

Supply Chain Toolworks Inc. was conceptualized early in 2001 by two former management consultants of the famed consulting firm PriceWaterhouse Coopers. Lorine DeHuff and Stephen Johanson, noted supply chain experts, struck out on their own with the lofty goal of automating Capacity Planning and Strategic analysis.  The partners focused on providing business process improvement in the supply chain specialty of operations planning and developed a set of proprietary workflows and analytics to support these.  In mid 2009, DeHuff and Johanson partnered with Dr. Vijay Hanagandi of Optimum Solutions renowned for his work in the field of Operations Research and Optimization to create Supply Chain Toolworks Inc. and develop its third generation product.
