'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, Netherlands, Oct. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Quintiq, a global leader
in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), announced today that
ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG (TKSE) is using its software to optimize customer
orders for increased delivery performance.

TKSE is one of the world's technology leaders in carbon steel flat products
and processes 50,000 orders using 200 machines across 10 plants. To optimize
the specific areas of capacity planning, order acceptance, stock levels and
lead times, the company required a planning system that could adapt to
changing market conditions and customer orders.
The Quintiq platform factors in finite resource capacity, business rules and
additional constraints in its planning to improve delivery performance for
ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG. In addition, the active stock planning support
function will anticipate targets to keep stock at a optimum level.
"We have a complex way of planning our campaigns and we required a single
system that could accommodate all of our niche constraints," said Andreas
Gonschorek, Corporate Planning and Process Optimisation, at ThyssenKrupp Steel
Europe AG. "In an intensive and trustful dialog the experts of Quintiq and
TKSE formed the software to fit the TKSE-requirements."
"Leading steel companies use Quintiq's 100%-fit SCP&O solutions that are
specifically designed for the industry," said Francois Eijgelshoven, VP EMEA
at Quintiq. "Being selected by a world leader in carbon steel flat products
further reinforces our position as the leading solution provider for the
metals sector. We're pleased to partner with ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG to
help optimizing its company planning process."
