Quintiq Delivers Excellent Results at Novelis SPBU

February 06, 2007 | 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands
Novelis is a global player, operating in 11 countries with approximately 12,500 employees. The company was formed as a spin off from Alcan in 2004. Novelis first implemented Quintiq Hot Mill Scheduler in Oswego. The success of this implementation led to adding solutions for its Cold Rolling and Finishing manufacturing centers (in both Oswego and Kingston), and its Recycling & Melt/Cast center in Oswego. Since 2003, Quintiq has been the commercially supported scheduling tool for the Specialty Products Business Unit that has been integrated with Novelis' existing system environment.

"Quintiq is an enabler for excellent results. It allows you to measure many KPIs and drive improvements in the critical ones. The iterative development process was key to Novelis owning the system. Quintiq has exceeded our expectations every step of the way."
