Faced with sharp demand variability and rising raw material costs, the specialty chemicals industry has to cut back its inventories while producing and procuring with a demand pull system based on orders and forecasts.
Ortems’ planning and scheduling solutions help synchronize production plans so inventory coverage can be aligned with orders and forecasts. Equipment, labor and raw materials can be optimized based on finite capacity. Our APS software takes into account the complex constraints of vats and reactors. It synchronizes all shops across all formulation levels and optimize production runs to minimize changeover times and losses. Short-term scheduling makes plants more responsive to production contingencies and changes in demand.

Collaborative planning solutions for the specialty chemicals industry:

Our strengths:
• Optimization of equipment capacity utilization
• Batch based production
• Work in battery of reactors with connectivity constraints
• Synchronization from process to packaging
• Synchronization of filling and emptying of tanks
• Control over use of storage tanks
• Variable sequencing rules and changeover times based on product sequences on the process equipment and packaging lines.
