Date Published：9/26/2018 11:09:25 PM
Siam Kraft Industry Co., Ltd. (SKIC) has appointed Greycon to update the scheduling and slitting optimisation in its three mills in Thailand. SKIC produces 2.3 million tons of packaging paper annually, making it Southeast Asia’s top packing manufacturer. In 2006, it contracted Greycon to provide scheduling and slitting optimisation at its mills. Now other SKIC sites have been upgraded.
Greycon offers production planning, forecasting, scheduling and manufacturing execution systems that have been designed specifically for roll-based & flat sheet industries. At SKIC, Greycon says its systems have improved trim, scheduling and machine utilisation, visibility, delivery time of orders and supply chain optimisation.
Jakkrit Supawatanakul, CEO of Greycon’s Partner in Thailand, Forward Consulting said: “We have enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Greycon. In order to be the leading manufacturer in Southeast Asia, as well as continue to contribute to sustainable progress, SKIC needs to ensure its mills are equipped with the latest technology providing innovative solutions enabling them to maximise efficiencies wherever possible. Due to results and benefits Greycon’s solutions have provided over the years, it is important they remain up-to-date.”
During the upgrade, Greycon installed its new version of X-Trim rewritten in .Net and its new generation of scheduling software, opt-Studio, substituting the old S-Plan installation.
The new version of the software provides:
- Better and faster slitter optimisation with X-Trim state of the art algorithms; and
- Faster and more user-friendly scheduling functionality which comes with opt-Studio.
Andres Bonelli, Project Manager at Greycon said: “Having been part of the original project back in 2006, it was exciting to roll out the upgrades and experience first-hand how SKIC’s business has grown and evolved over the years.”
