BASF Orgamol Pharma Solutions SA, a unit of the worlds leading chemical company BASF SE, has selected OMP Plus from OM Partners for the production planning of exclusive and generic Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), advanced intermediates and fine chemicals. Eight production plants (6 in Switzerland and 2 in France) are in scope of the project.
OMP Plus will steer an integrated production planning process aligning production to S&OP requirements. OM Partners software solution will offer solutions for the typical planning and scheduling challenges of the API industry like multi-level synthesis campaign scheduling with varying lot sizes and varying connections of multi-purpose equipments. Planning decisions are taken in OMP Plus and seamlessly fed to the SAP environment.
Dr. Daniela Herzberg, Operations Excellence Manager at BASF Orgamol Pharma Solutions, states We were looking for an advanced planning tool for our unit in order to reduce our inventory, optimize equipment utilization, minimize production cost and maximize customer service and overall profitability. We feel OMP Plus is the best solution to reach our objectives.
Luc Schepens, Partner at OM Partners, says: We are very pleased that BASF Orgamol Pharma Solutions has selected OMP Plus as its planning tool. It illustrates BASFs confidence in OM Partners, after previous cooperation in -amongst others- the intermediates and petrochemical division. It is the result of earlier successful value chain optimizations and a good partnership with BASF. We also see it as a confirmation of the strength of OMP Plus in the API chemical industry.
