Austria’s largest manufacturer of uncoated fine paper, Mondi Neusiedler, has integrated X-Trim to support its planning process. The system was put into operation in the first quarter of 2018.
Erich Leonhartsberger, Head of IT and Logistics at Mondi Neusiedler said: “Changes in product diversity and order structure prompted us to consider adapting existing planning systems. We are pleased to have found a partner with Greycon, with whom we were able to realise our goals in the shortest possible time.“
Michael Kimmeswenger, Project Manager, is also impressed with the results: “We started the project with a one-month test phase in which our planners were given the opportunity to test X-Trim live alongside its daily business. The acceptance was so high that we left the system running as a supportive instrument in the test environment. The roll-out as a productive system proved to be highly satisfactory thanks to the support of all involved.“
“A new record for integrating Greycon’s optimisation solutions into an existing ERP / MES system has been set by the Mondi-Neusiedler’s IT team,” said Markus Rintelen, Manager for DACH / Central Europe at Greycon. “Within two days of integrating the new planning tool into the existing environment, the production team received automated work instructions from X-Trim.”
“We are very pleased with the results. Not only will we save material and storage space, but we have also been able to shorten our business processes, which significantly improves our flexibility,” said Kimmeswenger.
