“We now have a much more objective way of interpreting demand data. This opens up discussions and gives us much more clarity about our processes. With AIMMS, we could also learn during the development of the tool. We took ownership of it." - Aron Waas, Global Supply Chain Director at Boon Edam

A fit for purpose toolset

Boon Edam was looking to shift towards a combined business model of “made to stock” and “assembly to order”  - where modules which could be placed into a configuration requested by the customer would be ready for production. At the same time, they were trying to optimize the workload between factories to boost manufacturing efficiency. Their financial reporting process was based on a lot of assumptions. Their forecast would be based on gut feel, posing great risks for the company. They decided to embrace S&OP and build an AIMMS-based support system to enable this process. The company realized it did not have perfect data quality, but was looking to start building a solution they could improve in incremental steps, following a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) approach.
