Marcegaglia is the leading Italian industrial group in the transformation of steel. With 6.2 million tons of steel processed every year, the group operates worldwide with 6,600 employees, 60 commercial units and 28 factories, serving over 15,000 customers.
The project scope involved an extensive review and digitization of Supply Chain processes in the Carbon Steel Division (division that transforms flat products (coils, strips and sheets) into carbon and pre-painted steel (PPGI) and steel pipes carbon; it processes a total of 4.6 million tons of steel per year, with a turnover of around 2.8 billion euros and is the first producer of welded tubes in Europe).
The project involved the processes of:
- Demand Management: definition of commercial demand in the medium / long term
- S&OP: aggregate planning of sales requirements at finite capacity
- Inventory Management: definition of stock targets and production proposals for MTS (Make-to-Stock) products
- MPS: planning of production requirements at finite capacity in the medium term, dating customer orders and generation of material purchase proposals.
The project involved the implementation of the following sedApta application modules:
The implemented system fully met the project requirements, allowing you to quickly generate reliable production plans, optimize the use of materials with a consequent reduction in inventory value and improved customer service. The solution also enables the generation of what-if scenarios to react to numerous scenario changes. Generation times of the plan and manual activities have been reduced significantly.
