“The AIMMS-based Optimizer developed by UniSoma is the ‘heart’ of the System and the most important component of the project. It optimizes demand based on customer profitability - a request which we did not find in any ‘package’ - indicating the most lucrative flat steel customers for AMT and Vega do Sul.” - Marcia Schwarz de Assis - Project Manager at AMT

Planning for growth

AMT began its plan to expand its yearly production capabilities from 5 million to 7.5 million tons of slabs and rolled coils through the construction of new production units and a new continuous casting machine. The investment would allow AMT to solidify its position in the global slab market. At the time, AMT had adopted SAP – APO® as its tactical and strategic planning tool but the company soon realized that several key business requirements could not be represented within SNP®, one of the APO® modules. To solve this, an AIMMS-based model was developed by AIMMS partner UniSoma. The module supports optimized and integrated calculations of production, distribution, strategic storage and sales considering the profitability per client as well as the logistic and production capabilities.
