A major South African food producer required a modern scheduling solution for one of their biggest grain milling facilities. The milling and product packing operations are very complex and the company’s service delivery promise requires orders to be packed and delivered within 48h of ordering. SET used Simio to develop a multi-purpose operational tool to assist the user to perform longer term capacity planning as well as daily production scheduling.
