Specialized software for sales planning and inventory optimization allows for a cross-location Integrated-Business-Planning-(IBP)-process at Emmi. The company is transforming its company-wide decision-making and planning processes with the help of the intelligent optimization software ADD*ONE. The system brings together all the information along the supply chain and integrates sales, inventory, supply chain and financial data into a single planning process. Using the algorithms of the add-on software, Emmi calculates and plans its range of more than 6,000 products produced in Switzerland, 18 months in advance, which results in
considerable cost savings.
