Billion Dollar Revenues, Seven Factories, One Powerful Planning System

Challenge: Seven factories, seven different scheduling systems with no SAP integration. That was the challenge facing one of the world's largest manufacturers of powder coatings. The company suffered high inventory levels, sub-optimal utilization of plants, and inconsistent service levels.

Solution: The company selected the Quintiq single-platform solution to unify and optimize the management of its seven plants across Europe. The system takes into account all of the company's rules and restrictions, ensuring a 100% fit with its business objectives.

Results: With Quintiq, the powder coating manufacturer improved customer service levels, maximized productivity, and gained full visibility of its supply chain across its seven plants. It could now manage its scheduling processes as if its plants were operating at a central site. Quintiq enables the company to match demand with production capacity at different plants, react in real-time to changing demand, and link its SAP MRP output to detailed line schedules.

About the Solution Provider: Every business has its supply chain planning puzzles. Since 1997, Quintiq has been solving each of those puzzles using a single-platform supply chain planning and optimization software. Today, approximately 12,000 users in over 80 countries rely on Quintiq software to plan and optimize employees, logistics and production.
