Steel producer selects JDA supply chain planner

Russian steel producer Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works has selected JDA’s Supply Chain Planner software to improve its sales and operations planning process.

It expects the new system to improve sales and profit, and optimise product mix considering existing and prospective logistics and production opportunities.

Andrey Eryomin, acting director for strategic development, said: “Diversification of produced goods, expansion of sales and supply markets, and profit optimisation are among key strategy tasks for our enterprise development. An integrated sales and operations planning process will support those activities.”

A pilot operation is expected to begin in July 2011. GMCS, a JDA partner in Russia, is the appointed implementation partner.
