VDM Metals is a global producer of high-performance alloys, including nickel, cobalt, and zirconium alloys. Processes are extremely complex, involving numerous specific production stages, deploying more than 100 different alloys and producing relatively small, highly specific batches. The fact that some production stages are carried out by external partners makes the planning even more complex.
The breakthrough came when VDM Metals met with OM Partners. A project was launched to model the entire value chain in the OMP Plus software system, including all production details. A bottleneck- oriented finite capacity planning analysis showed opportunities to better align the production stages.
