Siegwerk Druckfarben chooses global supply chain planning tool

Siegwerk Druckfarben, supplier of printing inks for packaging and publications, will start an implementation of OMP Plus in October 2015. The solution will be rolled out to 8 factories in 3 continents for production planning & detailed scheduling. Stefan Hauenschild, Sales & Operations Planning Responsible at Siegwerk Druckfarben, states: “This decision is the result of a thorough selection process of multiple top-tier vendors and an in-depth evaluation of capabilities in the area of SAP integration.”

The implementation will allow Siegwerk Druckfarben to improve their current production planning procedures and standardize planning processes and tools across the different production sites. OMP Plus will provide full visibility on the actual order status and capacity situation across all stages from raw materials to finished goods, allowing easier planning and investigation. The benefits include increased reliability of production performance by facilitating the generation of feasible plans and increased utilization of existing capacities. Another important objective is to improve the reliability of customer order confirmations.
