OCP Optimizes Its Supply Chain For Africa

6 déc. 2023   11h00 — 12h00

Séminaire en format hybride au local 4488 du GERAD ou Zoom.

Operations research specialists at the OCP Group, the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, and the Polytechnique Montreal operationalized a system optimizing OCP’s supply chain downstream activities. The system simultaneously schedules production, inventory, and vessels while ensuring the highest demand fulfillment. Therefore, it has become central to the OCP planning process, fundamentally transforming the supply chain and operations management within the group. Planners now use the optimizer’s solutions and insights to improve plans. The system was initially a bottleneck curbing the use of other supply chain management tools. However, after its operationalization, OCP management credits the system with providing operational benefits, contributing to over a $240 million increase in annual turnover.

Remarque : Ce projet a été finaliste au le Prix ​​IFORS pour la RO en développement 2023. L'équipe GERAD participante partagera également quelques idées sur le prix IFORS.
