"The solution we developed provided us with a set of optimization scenarios which would allow us to decide what particular path we wanted to take. Be it the path of customer service, greatest profit, or fewer production changeovers. The solution is unique and extremely helpful in delivering the return that our shareholders expect of us.” — Paul Combe, Supply Chain Director at Nampak Glass.

Maintaining customer service at a reasonable level of profit 

Increasing needs for product flexibility and production efficiency, paired with rising demand volatility, required Nampak Glass to improve their ability to deploy the best possible production schedule at all times. A redesign of the scheduling process was necessary to align different production phases. Given the complexity of Nampak Glass’ supply chain and production process, there was also a need for more advanced planning tools. The team was using Excel, which allowed them to manage their schedule at a basic level but didn’t provide the ability to make fast, complex, optimized calculations or quantify the financial impact of their planning decisions. Nampak chose AIMMS and Districon to develop a customized production scheduling and optimization tool.
