Case Study

More than a classic planning tool

3 hours vs 3 weeks to plan a satellite project.


Time-consuming and tedious costing and planning process :

  • Imprecise planning, too manual
  • Inability to explore the impacts (deadlines, costs, resources) of alternative scenarios

Capitalize on past projects to generate based on complexity criteria :

  • Reliable planning scenarios
  • With workload plan and associated costs
  • Reduction in planning load (+50%) and increase in the number of scenarios evaluated
  • Increased traceability of selected hypotheses
  • Improved Time-To-Market and development cost thanks to the better level of information when making decisions

1 Million € of income per day of production preserved


Planning technical shutdowns (Shutdowns) in a pharmaceutical environment is complex, subject to multiple constraints, and has a direct impact on production capacity.

  • Implementation of a visual planning, interfaced with time and team planning
  • Automation of the planning process with a process block approach
  • Control of technical shutdown
  • Securing production rates
  • -90% time spent on the planning process

2 Million € ROI after 4 months of use


Optimize the deadlines for a strategic machine replacement program to increase production :

  • Strong capacity constraints
  • Coactivity issues

A tool integrated with current planning tools :

  • Secure deadlines
  • Simulation of impacts to facilitate strategic decisions
  • Drastic reduction in planning & reporting time
  • Enrichment of the decision-making process
  • Proposals for optimization solutions to reduce delays and increase project profitability

Simplify the S&OP load plan process (ongoing projects + incoming business).

  • Operational: anticipate resource needs
  • Financial: better predict the financial impacts linked to underload

Use OFFOLIO's simulation capabilities to :

  • Create workload plans in a few seconds (incoming business)
  • Consolidate with the current project portfolio
  • Prioritize the remaining project to be done, thanks to an SAP interface (feedback of hours and budgets consumed)
  • Enable design offices to create action plans, based on allocated load hypotheses
  • Reduction of interstitial underload
  • Reduction of call for subcontracting
  • Reduction of time spent on the load plan
