Modelling the physical and chemical flow of material through the smelter network can be complex. The solution was instrumental in accommodating the unique constraints, regulations, and specifications and allows for accurate representation of the process. There is accurate planning for transportation, multi-step blending, and consumption of raw materials.
Integrated decision making and projections across shipment and production plans were critical tasks. Glencore now has even greater connectivity across the zinc smelting operations, providing planners with the necessary information to analyze and optimize shipment plans, consumption plans, and future movements.
Glencore can now quickly adapt plans and strategies to mitigate the impact of volatile market conditions.
“A key aspect of this collaboration was gaining visibility along Glencore’s entire supply chain. By integrating advanced data analytics and with our help, Glencore gained even greater insights into the value stream, from raw materials and smelting to transportation and trading. Enhanced visibility powers proactive decision-making, bottleneck identification, optimal resource allocation, and reduced supply chain inefficiencies.”
Rudi de Loor, Director of Delivery, The Logic Factory
