Kabtek is a leading global manufacturer of cable offering industrial products, including silicon cables, rubber-based command control, power and mid-voltage cables, and exporting more than 80% of total production to the leading West European countries.
Abdurrahman Güngör, COO at Kabtek: “CablePlan Plannica is helping Kabtek to improve the production throughput rate up to 20% through weekly planning of its new 21,000 m2 dedicated indoor facility producing approximately 700-1000 tons per month, reduce the master planning cycle from days to minutes, and provide Kabtek with an opportunity to revise its master plans multiple times throughout the week, and generate a master plan that conforms 100% to a variety of customer- and cable-specific constraints. Kabtek has expanded the scope of its involvement with CablePlan and is currently implementing CablePlan Chronica to minimize the setup times and improve overall OEE (operational equipment efficiency) across its entire facility and integrating CablePlan Promica to provide optimal quotations to its customers.”
Albert Groothedde, CEO at InnoVites: “We are excited about the results cable manufacturers can achieve with CablePlan. The results at Kabtek are a strong proof how production planning software can significantly improve production efficiency and therefore positively influence the bottom line of a cable manufacturer."
CablePlan Plannica reduces the planning cycle from days to minutes. It enhances and improves the decision making of production planners. CablePlan reduces the manual workload and releases the decision makers’ valuable time, enabling them to regain responsiveness and flexibility in the planning cycle. CablePlan enables planners to increase their planning horizon, enables smarter optimization and allows planning considering multiple objectives. CablePlan is tailored for the wire & cable industry and therefore includes optimization of drum constraints, length constraints and change-over losses.
CablePlan suite is built on large-scale analytical algorithms developed by Analytica Software. Mehmet Gumus, a professor of operations management at McGill University in Montreal, Canada and co-founder and CEO of Analytica Software: “These algorithms use state-of-art data and decision analytics to provide the decision makers with not only real-time production planning but also a guaranteed improvement along variety of KPIs.”
CablePlan is a joint development of InnoVites and Analytica Software. InnoVites is the global distributor of CablePlan in the wire & cable market.
