Improving warehouse utilization and manufacturing capacity

When planning analysts at FMC ran a simulation model in Brazil, they realized that their manufacturing process would experience a lack of capacity in about three years. There were two alternatives: buy additional equipment or decrease manufacturing cycle time. Given the expense of buying additional machines, they decided to explore whether it would be possible to decrease manufacturing cycle time. At the same time, FMC was experiencing a lack of capacity at its largest warehouse. They were at 80% capacity and realized that at the current rate, the existing infrastructure was not going to support the demand for storage required. The warehouse and regional planning team decided that an AIMMS-based toolset was the best solution to find a way forward.
