Ortems, provider of advanced planning and scheduling solutions, has launched the latest version of its Agile Planning software. The new release 7.40 meets the major requirements of manufacturers facing the current economic downturn, such as:
Cutting production costs while improving customer service levels.
Helping companies to stay on schedule for improved production control
Improving manufacturing flexibility to match increasingly fluctuating demand.
Creating effective inventory strategies: optimising inventory targets, safety stock consumption and alerts, and visibility of supply sources.
Jean Luc Badoc, Ortems' Technical Director, commented: We developed this new release in partnership with our international clients (DCNS, Nexans, Nespresso, Sanofi Aventis, Arcelor Mittal, Rhodia, etc.), and in tune with new manufacturing requirements: demand driven production, just-in-time, reduced cycle time, etc. Our renewed commitment to Agile Manufacturing was extremely well received by our installed base, as reflected in the massive migration to 7.40 and its high value added functionality.
