ACC and Ambuja Cements, a part of LafargeHolcim India, have selected Blue Yonder and implemented Luminate Planning for their supply chain transformation and digitalization.
Luminate Planning will help the two cement manufacturers improve Sales and Operational Planning (S&OP) with integrated planning and execution by gaining visibility into daily demand, production and dispatch plan to better predict demand fluctuation, scheduled maintenance, and improve logistics and transportation capabilities.
“The objective of this project is to improve the customer experience and service levels, yet profitably grow by tapping into the synergies of our supply chains, thus maximizing capacity utilization and minimizing overall cost,” Rajeev Mehta, chief logistics officer, ACC and Ambuja Cement, said.
Blue Yonder Luminate Planning solutions provide insights into a customer’s supply chain to allow for smarter, more actionable business decisions. Luminate Planning is built on Blue Yonder’s Luminate Platform, which is powered by Microsoft Azure and combines internal and external data from across a customer’s digital supply chain assets.
Vishal Dhawan, vice president, APAC sales, Blue Yonder, said: “With the end-to-end visibility afforded by Luminate Planning, the companies can better optimize their network and improve S&OP creating a more efficient supply chain.”
