Manufacturing and sales planning: Matrix

Manufacturing and sales planning system Matrix was developed to support planning processes for group's plant in Antwerp and Europe distribution chain with sales offices in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey.

Matrix provides a communication platform for sales, SCM and manufacturing departments of these offices, and serves as an entry point for sales prices, country delivery quotas, freight rate forecasts, etc. on planning horizon from 3 months to one year. The system analyses on-hand quantities and transportation graph, and then proposes a production and replenishment plan to fulfill the planned demand quantities. The plan could be then interactively tweaked by SCM manager.

Matrix provides web-services consumed by Eurochem's CRM system, reporting on such indicators as approved country delivery quotas or gross sales price for product on a specific market.
