Head of Planning and Investment Department of Ilim Timber
Our work with Opti-Plywood has started 3 years ago. Together we have obtained a useful tool for production planning: from peeling and drying of veneer and up to bonding, pressing and cutting the plywood. It is important that at all stages of planning the program can take into account received and planned orders, as well as priorities for their execution. For daily planning, the mill specialists simply download the initial data (orders and semi-finished goods) and the system will offer the best shift-daily plan for each production area, taking into account the existing constraints and priorities. This functionality for the Russian market, at the moment, is unique in its kind. Opti-Soft proved to be a reliable partner, fulfilling agreement accurately and on time. We continue fruitful cooperation in the application of automated planning tools for volume and financial indicators of plywood production.
