Carraro Successfully Deploys i2 Supply Chain Planning Solution to Improve Capacity Usage

(PresseBox) (München, ) i2 Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITWO) today announced that Carraro, a world leader in driveline systems for off-highway and on-road vehicles, has deployed i2 solutions to centrally manage weekly resource capacity allocations and critical material requirements. As a result, Carraro is now able to maximize the usage of assembly capacity while taking into account the required material constraints. In addition, the solution allows the planners to create plans which are refined on-line incrementally on the basis of the decisions affecting capacity allocations and material availability. Carraro also uses i2 solutions to drive overall production and the requirements of non-critical materials. The company has seen improvements in plan quality as well as a five-fold improvement in performance since implementation.

“Our customers are looking to implement solutions to overcome business challenges and improve the decision making process and supply chain visibility,“ said Alberto Consani, EMEA senior vice-president, i2. “Using our planning solutions, companies can optimize inventories, production, distribution and transportation to manage planning processes. We look forward to continuing our work together with Carraro and delivering additional bottom line results and supply chain efficiencies.”
