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.

Ortems has enabled us to have a work orders graphic view, including various scenarios simulations and their comparisons in order to choose the best option to be embraced.

In 1.5 years the order-fill ratio or refill rate, i.e. the availability of complete true-to-order kits on time for reassembly, rose from 30% to 90%. Over the same period of time, work-in-process was cut drastically, almost in half, going from 8,800 parts to 4,200 parts, due in particular to increased versatility and planning all WOs to meet the identified needs.

Ortems is really the reference for us. Everyone uses the planning software and shares the same view of progress in production and schedules. With Ortems, we meet our deadlines, especially if we run into technical problems as our businesses are quite complex. We are able to anticipate and provide reliable due dates, which our customers appreciate a lot.

The move to an automated Ortems solution –away from a “manual” Sage ERP X3 combined with MS Excel spreadsheets– has enabled quick and easy repositioning of work orders and delivered substantial efficiencies and time savings. We operate multi-customer packaging lines, and occasionally we took on additional orders without really forecasting the related load, which caused delays and customer dissatisfaction. Ortems provides us with a graphical and collaborative solution that lets all of our planning and sales administration teams work together and share an interactive schedule. Today we are in the burn-in phase for our MPS for the 27 packaging lines, and we are considering extending it to our production mixers.

« 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 observed benefits are first and foremost the enormous time savings of more than 80% in the time required to plan and schedule lines. We also managed to increase the size of runs and optimize our plant and equipment to reduce costs. And finally, our production is quite cyclical, doubling during the summer season, but we experienced a significant reduction in stock-outs during peak periods.

Thanks to Ortems we settle a very efficient central team and create a position of Supply Chain Manager. Now everyone is sharing a monthly Sales and Operational Plan and an optimized and reliable weekly Production Plan. We manage and pilot our plant, anticipate the load, smoothen the opening of our production lines which optimize the labor cost.

The benefits we've already noticed in Sanofi, by using Ortems, are the improvement in production lead time and in level of stock in process, reduction of supplies and finished goods delivery schedule cycle from monthly to weekly.
