ArcelorMittal has chosen OMP Plus from OM Partners as the platform to run the sales & operations planning process for their business segment Flat Carbon Europe. The company will start the project with a pilot for the Business Division North.
OMP Plus offers a platform for integrating planning processes, and provides a proven solution for Sales and Operations Planning. This implementation will help ArcelorMittal to plan locally and to balance demand, production and supply at local, regional as well as at central level. The solution will enhance the collaboration of the planning team and will support global optimisation of the European Supply chain.
The OMP Plus implementation aims at, amongst others, manual, rule-based and solver-based planning. It will handle multi sourcing, intercompany flows, capacity management and demand in multiple markets and channels. OMP Plus provides financial consolidation and advanced scenario management to support executive decision making.
Kris Notebaert, Head of Integrated Supply Chain at ArcelorMittal Flat Carbon Europe, states : "In a complex environment like ours, making the best planning decisions requires the collaboration of many experts contributing to the plan. We were looking for an advanced planning tool to serve as a common platform to enable this collaboration to take our business forward." Filip Gheysens, Head of Master Planning of ArcelorMittal Business Division North, added: "I did not believe that there was a standard tool on the market that could support our requirements until our proof of concept showed the contrary."
Luc Schepens, Partner at OM Partners, says: "We are very pleased that ArcelorMittal has selected OMP Plus as its planning tool. Truly balancing demand and supply, ArcelorMittal has shown that it leads the way in managing an integrated steel production network, and is transforming the steel supply chain of tomorrow. This new implementation confirms OMP Plus' leading position in S&OP applications, in this case in a very complex industry sector like steel."
