“Production scheduling in the food manufacturing industries entails a wide array of very specific challenges for the planner” – Hans Jørgen Lynggaard, co-creator of ROB-EX and Managing Director of ROB-EX. ...
A single order for a customer can consist of more than 100 different processing machines and transporters etc. In the past each department had its own Excel sheet to plan their work in, but now Cabinplant have a solution from ROB-EX.
At Novozymes ROB-EX gather data for detail scheduling from the ERP system SAP. The exchange from SAP to ROB-EX includes order data (batch no., product no.,). This saves double data entries and minimizes errors in data.
Henrik Jylov, Managing Director at OTV Plast, states: “In the first three years with ROB-EX our orders have tripled without an increase in our number of employees. I give ROB-EX a significant part of the credit for this”.
