Demand & Supply Chain Management Evolution

Case Study Detail
Language: English

Daimler AG Stuttgart: Central Car Logistics



 Daimler AG Stuttgart

Sector:  Automotive

With flexis Demand Capacity Planning we were able to improve our ability to gain a quick overview of series and parts. This made it a lot easier to secure implementation scenarios and target delivery dates, and also to increase the reliability of planning in these areas. The time saved by the solution which operating failure-free since 2004 is substantial. Since the initial implementation, flexis Demand Capacity Planning has also further improved internal communications because all employees can access updated data at all times, and information flow, e.g. to the car series planners, functions more smoothly than was the case prior to the implementation of the flexis solution.
Hans Georg Kling, Daimler AG

Scheduling data increases reliability of planning. flexis ensures a clear view of the timeline.
The May issue of the magazine "Logistik heute" contains an article that describes how Daimler AG Stuttgart optimizes demand capacity management. A system for part demand calculation developed by flexis is of significant importance for this process.

The method is based on order-neutral planning considering all information available in the company. Thus part- and component demands are represented, even where there are no orders. In addition, all code demands are calculated and reported depending on the input variables in terms of their quality.
