Suzhou Licheng has chosen to implement the OMP Corrugated Board System in its new production facilities in Lingbi, Suzhou. OMP will be used for corrugator optimisation, production scheduling, shop floor control and management reporting. It will be linked to the BHS corrugator, an automated conveyor system from Dücker and modern converting machinery.
The implementation will be done in two phases, together with the start-up of the factory. The first phase, planned for June 2016, focuses on the optimisation of the BHS corrugator. The second phase, linked to the go live of the conveyor system, is planned for August 2016, and will do the overall scheduling and optimisation of the plant.
Li KaiZhou, chairman of the Suzhou Licheng Packaging Group, says: "Suzhou Licheng has the intention to build highly automated plants with modern machines. We were not just looking for a software vendor, but for a partner that could help us address the operational challenges that our current and future investments bring. We chose OM Partners, because they offer a mix of in-depth operational advice and world class software solutions. Suzhou Licheng and OM Partners share a future oriented, long term partnership approach, based on trust."
Jan Geuens, Partner of OM Partners, states: "We are happy that Licheng has again chosen to implement our complete planning and production control system for the corrugated board industry for their new facility. We have been present at major industry fairs in China for quite some time and have seen dramatic changes over the last couple of years. The Chinese industry is becoming more and more interested in advanced planning and optimization tools."
