Chemical company BASF has selected OMP Plus from OM Partners for the production planning of its petrochemicals division in Ludwigshafen, Germany and Antwerp, Belgium.
Products of the division include cracker products, industrial gases, alkylene oxides and glycols, solvents and plasticizers. OMP Plus will plan all value chains of the division in an integrated multi-site and multi-user environment. All transports between the different locations including ships, rail and pipelines are planned with the same software. Planning ranges from yearly planning over monthly planning to daily scheduling, all planning levels perfectly integrated. Planning decisions are taken in OMP Plus and seamlessly fed to the SAP environment.
Kurt Wenzl, Information Manager Petrochemicals Division BASF SE states We were looking for an advanced planning tool for our division. There were two crucial requirements: first, the possibility to implement variable bills of material. And second, the perfect integration of the system into our existing SAP landscape. We feel OMP Plus is the best solution to reach our objectives. Luc Schepens, Partner at OM Partners, says: We are very pleased that now the second division of BASF has selected OMP Plus as its planning tool. It is the result of earlier successful value chain optimisations and a good partnership with BASF. We also see it as a confirmation of the strength of OMP Plus in the chemical industry.
