Greycon was appointed by APRIL Group to further optimize its sales and operations planning, by integrating Greycon sales and operations solution “opt-Studio” with APRIL’s Enterprise Resource Planning and Manufacturing Execution Systems. Greycon worked together with the APRIL Group and Accenture to deliver this solution.
Praveen Singhavi, President, APRIL Group, said: “In order to continue to meet customer demand and deliver high levels of customer service, we have integrated opt-Studio with our existing solutions. opt-Studio has improved end-to-end visibility of our sales orders, while being able to better optimize paper production (block planning) and finishing area scheduling.”
Vassilis Gkamouras, Senior Consultant at Greycon said: “APRIL Group is one of the most efficient pulp and paper mills in the world. The project was divided in three phased roll-outs to enable quick deployment of capabilities and took 14 months to complete.”
“The roll-out required expertise in global project management, change management, supply chain enablement and systems integration. The project was delivered on-time, in-full and within budget due to excellent team work between the partners involved.”
APRIL Group is a leading producer of fibre, pulp and paper with manufacturing operations in Pangkalan Kerinci, Riau Province, Indonesia.
