With MS Excel, it used to take us 3 hours to do a single planning run that covered more than 400 SKUs. Now, we can do several planning runs in 1.5 hours only. We have also reduced our inventory by 15% by applying our standards using the Ortems tool. And there are other gains from production optimization, only sometimes more difficult to quantify, because we see them over the long term; for instance, the savings on operator-level labor cost and on changeovers.

« Our priority is to ensure reliable on time delivery every time. In the automotive industry, the customer delivery is critical; our major constraint is inventory management, just in time delivery and deliveries on synchronous mode. That means that we should be able to deliver multiple parts of the same element in various colors with an immediate assembly planning in production. As the customer has no inventory we have no room for mistakes s. For example, on the Libercourt plant which manufactures the Toyota Yaris, we have 10 trucks per day leaving the plant with very precise time slot. ».

The Ortems solutions top up our SAP ERP. They enable us to increase our industrial performance and provide us high added value so we can make maximum use of the available capacity and forecast variations in load and available capacity. We are now more responsive in the face of fluctuations in demand and/or the schedule of raw material receptions. Ortems gives us a decision-support tool to justify capital expenditures and transfer manufacturing operations across facilities.

We chose Ortems rather than SAP Apo because the Ortems solutions offered more functionality and easier-to-use ergonomics and design for a lower cost. The last point that convinced us is that all of the interfaces are directly certified by SAP, which reassured our IT services.

Every day we download dynamic data from SAP (customer needs, inventory, Work Order), the planner thanks to Ortems readjusts the planning for the next 3 to 4 days to come, this allows us to have a real time visibility and to send the information updated back in SAP. Now, every planner will have more time and will focus on the organization and critical information with the same tool.Ortems, brings serenity to the work shop. We avoid now production disruptions as we are able to anticipate and react to them . These unpredicted events can have damaging economic consequences and jeopardize effective production planning”.

The Ortems software is much more precise than MS Excel. I can run what-if simulations and manage manufacturing operations based on the order book. For example, I can adjust the shifts’ workloads over one week, one month, two months, or as needed. I also have an immediate overview of advances and delays, which lets me optimize line capacity.
