ELVAL: Solving ELVAL's complex product mix puzzle

 
 
 

Company:

 ELVAL

Sector:  Metals & Mining
Tag:  Supply Chain Planning & Optimization
 Production Capacity Optimization
 Product Mix Optimization


ELVAL, with sites in Greece, Bulgaria and the UK, is the sole Greek producer of rolled aluminum products. It is known for world-class quality and service as well as excellence in human resources management and environmental protection. Over 80% of ELVAL's output is exported to more than 70 countries around the globe. The company has grown over the past three decades from a medium-sized regional producer to a global force. Current annual production is approximately 200,000 tons.

ELVAL selected Quintiq's supply chain planning and optimization platform for hot mill, cold mill and melt-cast schedules and routings. The Quintiq solution supports ELVAL in maximizing capacity utilization and at the same time reducing inventory and improving delivery performance. ELVAL uses SAP as a backbone, which is completely integrated with the Quintiq solution. With Quintiq's solution, ELVAL reduced overall lead times by 25% and by as much as 50% for some products.
    
"The Quintiq implementation methodology is a robust tool which has helped  our strategic initiative to re-engineer our production process.  Within the first three months from Company Planner's Finite Capacity Planning Go-Live, the KPI measurement framework has shown a reduction of the manufacturing cycle times by almost 30% for some products, with a corresponding reduction of WIP. During the last twelve months, delivery lead times for some high-end products have been reduced by 25% and even 50% in some cases".
Periklis Tsahageas, Project Manager, Elval
