Process and Food Manufacturing

Unlike traditional planning software providers, PearlChain takes an approach that allows manufacturers to provide customers with accurate capable-to-promise (CTP) commitments. This customer centricity alongside our pull philosophy makes PearlChain software fit for any Process & Food Manufacturing companies.

 

Process and Food Business Challenges

  • Manufacturers go from Make-To-Stock models towards mass customization like Build-to-Order
  • Instant visibility in quality of products with a rigid Track&Trace module are key for current health regulations
  • Shelf life of food products need to become longer to remain competitive
  • Having an overall view on all production plants / lines on one screen

 

Critical Success factors

  • Customer orders are evaluated in real-time and slotted within a finite schedule with purchase orders released to support Just-in-Time (JIT) and Just-in-Sequence (JIS) raw material and component delivery to work centers.
  • Use of multi-enterprise, “control tower” planning with suppliers and distributors
  • Integration with disparate systems

 

Achieved Results with PearlChain

  • Instant visibility into your orders, supply chain, and work centers enabling you to plan and schedule in Real‐Time.
  • Reduction of inventory by 30% in Work in Progress and 20% in finished goods
  • 30% shorter lead times and thus longer shelf lives as some materials arrive at the production site not longer than 4 hours before being used in production
  • Capable-to-Promise (CTP) towards customers installed
  • Products can be Track&Traced forwards and backwards in minutes, knowing for example from which batch a certain finished product is coming or all finished products a certain raw material is used in
