Production and Capacity Optimization Supply Chain Planning Stock Levels Optimization

FNsteel produces and processes wire rods and PC strands. The company has plants in the Netherlands, Finland and Sweden state of the art facilities for various production and processing activities, including pickling, annealing and drawing of the wire rod.

FNsteel first implemented Quintiq solutions at its annealing operations in Alblasserdam, the Netherlands; the rolling mill in Dalsbruk, Finland; and, its steel mill in Koverhar, Finland. Quintiq software is used to plan the loading of coils into furnaces simultaneously, resulting in more efficient use of energy. It's also used to manage material and stock, create production orders, plan shipments by sea, and more. Quintiq can be found performing a key function at every stage of FNSteel's complex supply chain. FNsteel reports several improvements since implementing Quintiq, including:
- Production cycles shortened by 10%
- Furnace capacity utilization increased to over 90%
- Increased capacity utilization
- Improved stock levels
- Improved customer service
