Automatic tactical planning with full transparency and control
Equally important, Company Planner is integrated with FNsteel’s ERP systems, factory scheduling systems and online order placement system. It includes an online due date determination system, which sales personnel use to determine accurate delivery promise dates. This helps FNsteel improve customer service and satisfaction.
Efficient order planning against existing inventory
FNsteel now schedules the production of the steelmaking and continuous casting lines at its Koverhar plant with Quintiq Metal Scheduler. Fully integrated with Company Planner and the FNSteel Koverhar MES system, the Quintiq solution performs the operational planning of the casters and constantly fine-tunes the production schedule so it is in sync with the tactical plans.
Francois Eijgelshoven, Director Business Unit Manufacturing at Quintiq, commented: "The 2006 implementation of Quintiq Metal Scheduler enabled FNsteel to improve capacity utilization in the wire processing unit and decrease lead times. With that, we successfully demonstrated our ability to expertly support special segments of the steel industry. Now, with Company Planner and Metal Scheduler for continuous casting, FNsteel’s second and third Quintiq implementation, FNsteel can expect to quickly reach its goals of increased efficiency and higher delivery performance."
