Atlanta—Sept. 18, 2012—Twin Disc Inc., a designer, manufacturer and distributor of marine and heavy-duty off-highway power transmission equipment, implemented Logility Voyager Solutions from collaborative supply chain solutions provider Logility Inc. to help power its global sales and operations planning (S&OP) process and manage its manufacturing schedule.
“Our operations encompass both make-to-stock and make-to-order demands. These variable lead-times required a supply chain solution that would generate an accurate demand plan and enhance our S&OP process,” said Mitchell Sosnowski, Global Sales and Operations Planning, Twin Disc Inc. “The implementation of Logility Voyager Solutions in such a short period of time is a pivotal step in Twin Disc’s ability to meet our global demands effectively, properly manage the supply chain and use the S&OP process to its fullest benefit.”
Twin Disc’s global operations require an S&OP process based on consistent, accurate information from across the supply chain. The company’s previous process created silos of data that limited visibility and complicated the Twin Disc S&OP process. The company turned to Logility Voyager Solutions to help balance global demand and supply to ensure customer service amidst a highly complex manufacturing environment.
With an increasing global footprint, Twin Disc’s business is conducted across five strategic business units. Coupled with its multi-sourcing strategy, the supply chain team must execute its make or buy decisions daily to ensure its manufacturing operations run cost effectively while maintaining a superior level of customer service. Logility Voyager Solutions allows Twin Disc to proactively approach changes to supply and demands, while increasing visibility to minimize risk.
“We are proud to work with Twin Disc and be a foundational part of its sales and operations planning process,” said Mike Edenfield, President and Chief Executive Officer, Logility. “Logility Voyager Solutions provides Twin Disc greater visibility into its operations allowing the company to better plan for demand, determine its most cost-effective make versus buy strategy and deliver the level of service Twin Disc has been known for more than 90 years.”
Logility Voyager Solutions features performance monitoring capabilities to increase supply chain visibility and operational efficiency in key areas including demand, inventory and replenishment planning, S&OP, manufacturing planning and scheduling, supply and inventory optimization, transportation planning and management, and warehouse management.
