Cross-plant platform breeds success for aluminum rolling & recycling company

Challenge: A world leader in aluminum rolling & beverage can recycling contracted our company as they were looking for a planning and scheduling platform that would enable it to run products from either of its two plants, while improving other important KPIs.

Solution: Following a successful three-way RFI pitch and demonstration, we delivered the entire solution across the two plants, aligning schedules and plans using a three-phase approach over five months from the project start date. The platform was configured to meet our client's current needs, but constructed in fashion that would evolve with the business so it can be sustained on a long-term basis.

Results: Our client has enjoyed significant benefits since our platform was implemented across its manufacturing centers nine years ago. They have seen a number of direct benefits, including an increase in sales, decrease in backlogged orders, and since 2003, a 45% increase in on-time production.

About the Solution Provider: Quintiq's revolutionary supply chain planning and optimization platform enables enterprises to improve efficiency at every stage of the supply chain journey. It powers end-to-end planning and optimization of personnel, resources, and processes in a single planning environment, across all planning horizons.
