NLMK Group has begun commercial operation of a complex of digital solutions for production planning at the Lipetsk site, which will improve the accuracy of customer orders and ensure transparency in tracking them, as well as increase production productivity.
The complex provides implementation on one digital platform of functions of receiving an order, assigning a deadline for its execution, scheduling and production scheduling. When a new order is received, the system automatically calculates the execution time, taking into account the capacity utilization, the optimal schedule for using equipment and other factors. The system will be integrated with a personal account on the NLMK.shop website: the company's customers will be able to monitor the status and location of an order in real time.
“The new digital platform required a large-scale transformation of business processes in sales, planning, production, logistics and repairs. The solutions implemented are based on industry best practices, including end-to-end order planning with weekly delivery guarantees and daily plan optimization. As a result, we will be able to ensure higher delivery accuracy, increase the competitive advantages of our customers, and increase production volumes by removing bottlenecks in the technological chain, "commented Vyacheslav Vorotnikov, NLMK Managing Director.
Total investment in the complex digital solutions amounted to over RUB 1.2 billion.
