Evonik rolled out a full-scope OMP Planning System to provide end-to-end visibility in the supply chain of their Business Line Performance Intermediates in Marl (Germany) and Antwerp (Belgium). OMP is now the supply chain system of record and is seamlessly connected to the Evonik SAP ERP system.
The implementation of OMP enables an end-to-end economical optimization of the integrated chemical value chains at both locations. This does not only result in an optimized usage of production and distribution capacity, it also provides a plan with maximized contribution margin and allows what-if scenario planning.
As such, OMP facilitates a demand-driven, profitable supply response across the entire extended network. The integration of Demand Planning, S&OP and Operational Planning and Scheduling, allows for synchronized planning decisions on one single platform that creates value across the complete planning horizon.
To make these decisions, OMP deals with Evonik’s highly complex continuous chemical production processes with multi-stage variable bills of materials depending on the actual composition of the input products.
Rainer Fretzen, Head of Performance Intermediates, states: “A key element in our choice for OMP was its capability to generate a value-based plan while dealing with our complex chemical network. Since we started using OMP, we discuss value instead of volume in our S&OP meetings. Furthermore, our response times have significantly improved thanks to the efficient execution of decisions in daily operational planning and scheduling on the same OMP platform.”
Kurt Gillis, Director Business Development at OMP, says: “We are very pleased with this new go-live. It strengthens the position of our tool as the Planning System of Record for the Chemical industry. OMP is now in the heart of the S&OP process of Evonik Performance Intermediates.”
OMP helps companies facing complex planning challenges to excel, grow and thrive by offering the best digitized supply chain planning solution on the market. Hundreds of customers in a wide range of industries - spanning consumer goods, life sciences, chemicals, metals, paper and packaging - benefit from using OMP’s unique Unison Planning™ concept.
