QUIES chooses ORTEMS to optimize production scheduling

(PresseBox) (Limonest Cedex, ) The QUIES Company, founded in 1921, is a French SME, specialized in ear and eye protection products with a strategy of new products introduction. The company that generates revenue of €13 million, more than 20 % of which comes from outside France, has expanded its products portfolio and its distribution channel, through the hypermarket and supermarket sector in addition to pharmacies, exporting to more than twenty countries.

Stephane Eurin, production manager at QUIES explains "Our business has changed a lot in the past years. For instance on the distribution side the supermarkets business is run with more pull flow and just-in time logic implying less forecasted orders in advance. Furthermore, the retail market has imposed strict penalties in the event of non-compliance to delivery due dates. On our side we were looking at improving our inventory ratio both on raw material and finished products. So far, production planning and scheduling was becoming extremely complex.

Up to now, we have been using ERP Sage X3 for production management and Excel spreadsheets for manufacturing schedules. Synchronising those tools on a daily basis was generating a lot of mismatch between production plan and raw material needs.

As a consequence our replenishment data were mostly unreliable highlighting our information system limits.

We have now chosen to integrate ORTEMS which connects directly with ERP Sage X3 in order to increase responsiveness, efficiency and performance on production lines.

The ORTEMS planning and scheduling solution will enhance the flow of information throughout our company, enabling immediate responsiveness to seasonal or export demands. ORTEMS will complement our ERP Sage X3 perfectly helping us to take the most effective decisions at any given time.

This partnership is an added credential in the ORTEMS agreement with ERP Sage X3 in the medical industry. We are proud and delighted to work with QUIES in implementing this project, said Frederic Faysse, Sales Manager at ORTEMS. By using our solutions QUIES will benefit of a reliable planning and an optimised production scheduling.
