Laboratoires Chemineau complements its Sage X3 ERP with Ortems software

Laboratoires Chemineau is the European specialist in aerosol, liquid, and semi-liquid pharmaceutical products for ENT or topical use in the subcontracted pharmaceutical market.

The company has 300 employees, 120 customers, and generates revenues of €59 millions.

After implementing a sales forecast schedule in the management committee, it was essential to have a finite-capacity planning solution in order to prepare a 4-month Master Production Schedule (MPS), balance the load, and optimize resources (machines and labor).

Challenge

Laboratoires Chemineau chose the Ortems planning software to complement its Sage X3 ERP in order to:

  • Improve its customer service level
  • Reduce the occupancy rate of its warehouse (components and finished products)

Benefits

  • Improved efficiency and substantial time savings, especially thanks to the quick and easy repositioning of work orders
  • Improved forecact of workload
  • Improved reliability of the MPS for the 27 packaging lines
  • Easier planning process, thanks to a graphical and collaborative software solution
