Bausch+Ströbel, the world market leader for filling and packaging machines for pharmaceuticals, plans up to 500 of its complex plants a year with the APS system FELIOS. As a result, the number of possible production orders has doubled, while at the same time there are significantly fewer rush orders.
For more than 50 years, the company has been designing and producing its plants for the international pharmaceutical and related industries. Due to the high degree of individuality as well as complexity of the products, which consist of several tens of thousands of parts, manual planning and scheduling in combination with the plain lead time scheduling of the ERP system was no longer bearable.
The combination of well-designed, transparent processes and the planning and scheduling software FELIOS has proven to be a full success at Bausch+Ströbel.
