Novelis Inc. is an $8-billion organization and the parent company of an international group operating in many areas of the aluminum and packaging industries. Novelis's unique strengths lie in its expansive network of operations in 12 countries with 12,500 dedicated employees, a global customer base, innovative products and advanced technologies.
Multiple Novelis sites have selected Quintiq's planning and scheduling solutions. In addition to Novelis Europe, which implemented the strategic planning solution, 12 production areas within five factory sites in Europe have installed the mid-term and short-term planning solutions. Novelis factory sites in the United States and Canada optimize their operations with Quintiq. Some of the reported benefits include:
