 Johnson Controls
Supply Chain Optimization Supply Chain Efficiency Costs Reduction

Johnson Controls Power Solutions delivers batteries to its more than 10,000 customer locations on a regular basis. This world-class delivery operates within a closed-loop battery supply chain. On delivery of batteries to its customers, Johnson Controls picks up spent batteries at each location. The spent batteries are then transported to a licensed smelter for recycling. The recycled products are sent back to Johnson Controls battery plants. Raw and recycled materials are manufactured into new batteries which starts the closed-loop process again.

Johnson Controls was looking for a supply chain management solution that would allow it to make informed decisions quickly, while optimizing their efficiency at every point of the supply chain lifecycle.

Johnson Controls selected a supply chain management solution built around IBM ILOG LogicNet Plus XE. The solution provided the company with an accurate model of their supply chain that contributed to quick analysis and better decision making.

The capabilities offered by the IBM ILOG LogicNet Plus XE solution allowed Johnson Controls to embed optimization deep into their supply chain, helping to reveal hidden savings opportunities and optimize supply chain efficiency.
