We recognized our client’s business needs and addressed them with Oracle-enabled Solutions.

About the Industry

The business of plastic is evolving rapidly. With the rise in application in the field of aerospace, automotive, packaging, and household appliances, the market demand for refined plastics has witnessed exponential growth.

Due to this huge demand, the plastic manufacturing market is rerouting towards disciplinary trends. The demand for reinforced plastics is rising, because it is  the best alternative to metal components. The rise of automated solutions has not only simplified the manufacturing process, but also improved cost savings. Improved programming, agile facility maintenance, and a transformed manufacturing cycle are some of the values added at the enterprise-level.

About the Client

Our client is a US-based global manufacturer of plastics and its multiple components. They have successfully marked their presence across several lines of business, and are on the verge of expanding their geographical reach as well.

With sales over $900 Million, their capabilities have reached the South American, European, and Asian markets. With a workforce of more than three thousand employees, the organization has collaborated with several third-party manufacturers and service providers who looked after the associated tasks of production. The aluminum extrusion business-vertical of our client is delivering better outcomes, resulting in an added advantage over its competitors.

The Business Challenges

The manufacturing of plastics and its polymers brings with its multiple complexities. Our client faced the following hurdles while manufacturing operations: –

  • Despite the adoption of a smart manufacturing approach, the organization lacked demand planning.
  • Lack of automation in supply planning and its flow across the enterprise created cross-functional hurdles. Not only was the communication hindered, but the functional dependencies also suffered.
  • The accuracy of the forecasts was lacking. As a result, the synchronization between the market and its analysis lacked.
  • The absence of enterprise collaboration affected the business process of our client, which in turn, slowed down the production output.

Our Solution

  • We analyzed the business landscape and the process of our client. Our expert filtered out the intrinsic factors behind such business gaps.
  • We suggested the implementation of an integrated demand planning solution along with the JD Edwards Solution.
  • Our proactive approach aligned multiple domains of the enterprise and integrated them to achieve operational efficiencies.
  • Post solution implementation, we studied one of the ongoing projects and cross-checked the achieved results with the desired results.

Key Results

  • We acknowledged the reduction in cycle time from 25 days to 7 days, nearly an improvement of 75%.
  • The accuracy in forecast improved by 15%.
  • Our single source of truth eliminated multiple spreadsheets and data charts.
  • We proposed advanced metrics to gauge the overall status of projects. The calculated result helped ascertain the areas that required more attention.
