Southeast Asia’s biggest packing manufacturer upgrades to latest version of X-Trim and opt-Studio

<< Back to Breaking News

SKIC is the biggest manufacturer in Southeast Asia with a production of 2.3 million tons of packaging paper annually. Greycon first got involved with SKIC in 2006 when it was contracted to provide scheduling and slitting optimisation in it mills in Thailand. Because of the benefits SKIC has achieved in improved trim, scheduling and machine utilization, visibility, delivery time of orders and supply chain optimisation, SKIC included two new sites to the original project scope. The system is integrated fully with SAP.

Jakkrit Supawatanakul, CEO of Greycon’s Partner in Thailand, Forward Consulting said : “We have enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Greycon. In order to be the leading manufacturer in Southeast Asia, as well as continue to contribute to sustainable progress, SKIC needs to ensure its mills are equipped with the latest technology providing innovative solutions enabling them to maximise efficiencies wherever possible. Due to results and benefits Greycon’s solutions have provided over the years, it is important they remain up-to-date.”

During the upgrade, Greycon installed its new version of X-Trim rewritten in .Net and its new generation of scheduling software, opt-Studio, substituting the old S-Plan installation.

The new version of the software provides :

 Better and faster slitter optimisation with X-Trim state of the art algorithms ; and
 Faster and more user-friendly scheduling functionality which comes with opt-Studio.

Andres Bonelli, Project Manager at Greycon said : “Having been part of the original project back in 2006, it was exciting to roll out the upgrades and experience first-hand how SKIC’s business has grown and evolved over the years.”
