ALMOND: Software scheduling system for manufacturer

Based in Scotland, Almond Engineering is a leading manufacturer of precision-engineered packaging products for the food industry.

A crucial aspect of their production requires the accurate forecasting of sales and material requirements. EPCC designed an automated software tool that significantly improved the planning process by:

  • importing live production data from Almond's existing systems;
  • generating a production forecast, based on previous months sales figures;
  • automatically generating all the material requirements to meet the projected production plan.

The intergrated software extended their existing systems and streamlined production planning and improved overall efficiency.
