Siegwerk Druckfarben chooses OMP Plus as a global supply chain planning tool

October 22, 2015

Siegwerk Druckfarben started the implementation of OMP Plus in October 2015. The solution was rolled out to 8 factories in 3 continents for production planning & detailed scheduling.


This implementation will allow Siegwerk Druckfarben to improve their current production planning procedures and standardize planning processes and tools across the different production sites. The benefits include increased reliability of production performance by facilitating the generation of feasible plans and increased utilization of existing capacities. Another important objective is to improve the reliability of customer order confirmations.  OMP Plus will provide full visibility on the actual order status and capacity situation across all stages from raw materials to finished goods, allowing easier planning and investigation.

Stefan Hauenschild, Sales & Operations Planning Responsible at Siegwerk Druckfarben, states: “This decision is the result of a thorough selection process of multiple top-tier vendors and an in-depth evaluation of capabilities in the area of SAP integration. Key to our future requirements are the extensions possible into demand planning, inventory management, network planning and the integration with detailed transport scheduling. OMP Plus is the perfect solution to solve our complex requirements in a very dynamic, demand-driven business.”

Luc Schepens, Partner at OM Partners, says: “OMP Plus provides seamless functional and technical integration, meeting the stringent selection criteria set by Siegwerk Druckfarben for this implementation. We offer business process consulting in combination with implementation services and our customers share a passion for achieving excellence and the optimum in supply chain planning.”
