Constellium has enjoyed great success using Quintiq's platform to
optimize its melt/cast and hot rolling operations for over a decade,
and now intend to use it to improve key performance indicators in delivery performance and inventory reduction between plants in Valais and Issoire. The extended platform will be
immediately applied to Constellium's aerospace product manufacturing
Prior to Quintiq's platform going live, the Valais plant used an ERP
system with fixed lead-time calculations to quote due dates on orders.
Now, Quintiq's optimized platform supports reliable due date quotation
based on a sales budget check and finite capacity planning that takes
into account material availability, from casting to finished goods.
"By implementing Quintiq's platform at Constellium's Valais plant, we
have created an opportunity for increased compatibility within its
Global ATI division," said Francois Eijgelshoven, Quintiq VP of EMEA.
"This expansion to inter-plant supply chain allows multiple locations
to participate in the end-to-end production process which increases
efficiency and reduces costs."
"Quintiq enables Constellium to improve our supply chain efficiency and optimize our processes, bring them to a level befitting a company
of our stature," said Lionel Thomas, Global ATI supply chain & metal
director, "Quintiq's platform not only facilitates the seamless
expansion of our multi-plant supply chain, but helps our quest of
achieving 100% optimization for all of the Global ATI division."
