ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe solves its supply chain puzzle with Quintiq

July 17, 2012 | 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG is one of the world's leaders in quality carbon steel flat products. The company's capabilities range from intelligent material solutions, to product-specific processing and comprehensive services, to finished steel parts and assemblies.

ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe is aiming to solve its currently problematic supply chain planning puzzle and optimize its supply chain processes with Quintiq, a specialist in Advanced Planning & Scheduling solutions. Quintiq successfully completed a proof of concept with the steel supplier last year.

The planning and scheduling software previously used by ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe provided a limited level of visibility of its supply chain planning processes. Consequently, ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe put together a list of requirements for an optimal, tailor-made planning software solution.

Quintiq had already impressed ThyssenKrupp Steel with the implementation of detailed planning at its plants in various other locations. After Quintiq provided another successful proof of concept, ThyssenKrupp Steel once again chose a Quintiq product called the Company Planner. This software solution will be able to take into account all relevant company regulations when optimizing the planning of product orders in the supply chain.
