Mohawk expands Greycon’s Finite Scheduling Model across envelope and substrate converting business
Mohawk has appointed Greycon to roll out opt-Studio to its envelope and substrate converting business.
Greycon’s solution was first implemented in Mohawk’s paper manufacturing and converting operations in 1996 and this roll out includes the opt-Studio ATP/CTP (Available to Promise/Capacity to Promise) module to improve customer service levels and on-time delivery.
Mohawk, a fourth generation, family-owned business, makes fine papers and envelopes for the professional design and print communities. Products are developed to support the full range of printing platforms – from letterpress to offset to toner and ink jet. Mohawk distributes to 60 countries around the world and operates three paper machines in two mills in upstate New York and two converting facilities in New York and Ohio, with warehouses in New York, Ohio, California, Washington and the Netherlands.
John Angleson, Senior Vice-President of Supply Chain at Mohawk said: “We recognise the value Greycon’s solution has provided in scheduling visibility, improved customer service and operational efficiency with its finite scheduling optimisation. As a result of the excellent results we experienced with the earlier installations, we decided to invest in the expansion project. We are now able to see aspects of our schedules that we’ve never seen before. Within the first seven days we were able to resolve some critical backlog issues.”
Jay Jordan, Sales Manager for Greycon North America commented: “We are excited to be rolling out opt-Studio in Mohawk to include its envelope and substrate converting business - the Finite Scheduling Model will provide Mohawk with full visibility of production schedules across its operations.”
