Together with Optilon, SKF will improve their planning process.
SKF is taking the next step in their global planning strategy. This will change the current, decoupled planning into a global planning process – enabling new, global optimization possibilities but keeping and leveraging the local knowledge.
“We are good at planning, but we can not keep a competitive advantage if we plan our entities along the supply chain in isolation. This project will transform our way of working by integrating the demand planning, distribution planning and master scheduling into what we refer to as ‘Integrated Planning’. It is the latest step of a several year co-operation with Optilon. They have been really good in challenging us and our way of thinking, helping us finding new ways of working with our Demand Chain,” said Jörg Schlager, Business Transformation Demand Chain, SKF.
“We take pride in our work together with SKF, it is an excellent company with a highly skilled and ambitious team who truly strives for change. It’s an honor to make this supply chain journey together with them and we look forward to continue it as well as seeing the results,” commented Jens Stenquist, VP Sales & Marketing, Optilon.
