Pfeiffer, a leading manufacturer of atomizers and dosaging systems for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries needs a simpler way to coordinate its production scheduling with material flow and capacity planning and to react more promptly to scheduling or volume changes. The PP/DS module used offers numerous functions as e.g. the PP/DS optimizer which finetunes the production system, e.g. with regard to tooling expenses or throughput times.
axentiv will focus the solution first on production planning in the injection moulding section. From the very beginning, care will be taken to ensure that other areas or countries can be integrated in the future. The use of a single planning system allows Pfeiffer to create the preconditions for efficient and internally coordinated production planning.
Pfeiffer, with its seat in Radolfszell on Lake Constance, is a member of the AptarGroup. The AptarGroup is a leading global player with a highly varied range of dosaging systems for bodycare, perfumes, cosmetics, pharmacy, household and cleaning agents as well as foodstuffs and beverages. With more that 6,000 employees in 18 countries, the company has written a turnover of over 1.1 billion US$.
