Improve productivity and efficiency
PlaniSense gives you the means to increase productivity and output in your plants.
What's the challenge?
PlaniSense uses the best solvers on the market to optimize the use of resources in a constrained environment in order to improve overall productivity and performance in production plants.
Optimization in PlaniSense concerns both mid-term planning and shorter-term scheduling.
Automatic planning enables load smoothing, resource sizing and lot size definition over the mid term, with an objective of maximizing service levels and minimizing inventory costs.
Automatic scheduling makes it possible to allocate human resources to tasks efficiently, taking into account the skills required, and to simultaneously optimize production sequences and the choice of equipment to minimize idle time, taking into account precedence constraints.
How we work
PlaniSense solution implementation times vary according to the functional scope to be deployed, but remain relatively short (around 3 to 9 months). This guarantees our customers control over integration costs and the risks inherent in deployment projects. We adopt an agile approach to stay as close as possible to user needs and prepare the ground for effective change management.
- Define project scope and objectives
- Define project success criteria
- Understand and master workflow and processes
- Define target solution
- Draw up a detailed project schedule
- Determine the content of each iteration based on the functionalities described in the backlog
- Progressively parameterize and integrate PlaniSense functionalities
- Deliver a functional version of PlaniSense after each iteration
- Collect and process user feedback after each iteration
- Validate User Acceptance Tests (UAT)
- Lead the transition to using the solution in a production environment

Three modules to suit your needs
The PlaniSense solution comprises three modules: Demand Planning, Supply Chain Planning and Scheduling. These modules can be used independently or complement each other, depending on the specific needs of each customer. Each module contributes, at its own level, to the overall improvement of the company's level of reactivity, thanks to advanced alert systems, simulation and collaborative work functionalities.
This module enables you to accurately forecast demand in order to maximize service levels and anticipate capacity requirements.
In a context of finite capacity, this module enables mid and short-term management of distribution, production and supply to satisfy demand at the lowest possible cost.
This module enables you to sequence short-term operations and allocate resources to maximize efficiency and productivity.
