A Texas-based sheet metal fabrication manufacturing company

Goals/ Challenges

  • Goals

    • Allocation and procurement of raw materials per production cycle
    • Identification of exact raw material to be sourced from relevant suppliers 
    • Direct impact on output and inventory storage costs

    Challenges

    • Diverse products and raw material types
    • Unavailability of right quantities to best match raw material in storage for production Procurement lead time longer than the time to deliver
    • Lack of traceability

Our Solution/ Approach

Solution

  • Optimized the total cost involved in manufacturing the finished goods, based on the set constraints using linear programming.

Approach

  • A Recommender system providing the best choice of raw material for the production of each of the end products is generated using Linear Programming.
