The role of Sidenor in the project

Within Flex4Res, Sidenor provides a use case scenario about demand planning and optimisation of detailed production scheduling. Learn more about the use case with GOIMEK: https://www.flex4res.eu/pilots/sidenor/

Sidenor is part of Flex4Res, because…

… external and internal disruptions require reallocating the production to other production sites than originally planned. Currently, reconfiguration takes place manually and is based on expert knowledge and spreadsheet calculations. Moreover, decisions taken at the network level are not connected to the reconfiguration needed at the factory level.

With its participation in the Flex4Res project, Sidenor wants to address potential human errors and huge computational time by digitising the process through the macroplanning tool. Moreover, Sidenor plans to optimise the process of transferring data, close the gaps to their supply planning and connect network and factory level by automatically disaggregating the information through macro-meso transition tool. These points should result in optimising the total supply chain, reduce the inventory costs, utilise the resources by improving the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) rate and finally meet corporate targets and strategy.
