Textile giant Vlisco and Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O) are hosting a free one-day seminar focusing on innovative planning and optimization strategies that drive business results. The seminar ‘Taking Optimization to the Next Level’ will held at Vlisco’s headquarters in Helmond, the Netherlands, on October 2, 2013.
The seminar will let guests in on best practices that enable top executives in manufacturing and supply chain management to improve efficiency by double-digits. Vlisco, the Dutch fashion designer and producer of African print fabrics, has achieved unprecedented results since implementing Quintiq’s software, including:
- Reduced lead times by 50 percent
- Raised delivery reliability to as much as 90 percent
- Continuously attained record output
Planning experts will examine Vlisco’s remarkable results and reveal how together the two companies are working to double Vlisco’s revenue by 2015. The program will also include a live demonstration of Quintiq’s production planning and optimization software and a competitive planning game that brings everyday planning puzzles to life.
“Launching this annual event is indicative of Quintiq’s growing presence in manufacturing and supply chain management,” said Jos Braam, director of business unit manufacturing, Quintiq. “Sharing Quintiq’s vision and Vlisco’s success story from this platform allows us to connect with important decision-makers and demonstrate how Quintiq’s production planning solutions can support them in creating value and strengthening their competitive advantage.”
