ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG Deploys Quintiq Software Platform

'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."
