Processing 1000’s tons of Unilever products weekly.
Unilever didn’t have sight of the quantity of product they were sending out each week resulting in a lot of waste and also not having enough stock. They needed a single view that monitored and reported the amount of stock sent out each week.
We created a bespoke .net web-based app to manage 5 factories.
The system allows each factory manager to enter the estimate of products to be manufactured and distributed each week. At the beginning of the week, the factory manager would input the forecast for the week and then DPO would then track all products sent out and quickly and easily display the amount of products sent out on a dashboard and then show where the factory is compared with the forecast throughout the week.
DPO processes over 23,000 pallets, 11,788,405kg (11,000 tons) of product each week. DPO gives the factory team a holistic view of trends and data to manage the production of future products. Over time factories can manage trends to limit waste and improve efficiency on-going.
