Industrial Packaging Manufacturer Revolutionises Scheduling Processes
Industrial and consumer packaging manufacturer Sonoco was experiencing high inventory levels across its complex network of divisions and plants. The company needed a more flexible solution to effectively schedule production plans across its dynamic manufacturing network.
Sonoco implemented Logility Advanced Planning and Scheduling to create optimised schedules across its 36 plants that consider machine, personnel, tooling and inventory constraints to drive shorter lead times and reliable product availability.
Immediately, the company gained greater flexibility, greater visibility and improved customer service levels.
Logility has revolutionised Sonoco’s scheduling processes, which has streamlined the company’s sales and operations planning (S&OP) processes. The digital supply chain management solution is now fully embedded into the manufacturer’s production best practices. Lead times have reduced, while product availability has increased.
The Logility platform is giving the manufacturer greater confidence in its ability to respond to dynamic customer and market changes.
