RDM Selects Greycon Systems

RDM recently appointed Greycon to implement a new manufacturing execution system for their board mills throughout Europe. It will include the entire Greycon Suite of modules for the paper & board industry, including opt-Studio® for centralised planning and scheduling, X-Trim® for trim optimisation and GreyconMill™ for production tracking, process integration and despatching. In parallel, RDM selected Microsoft AX as the centralised ERP system. The implementation started in May 2016 with the group template and will be rolled-out to a total of six mills – three in Italy, two in France, one in Germany plus one converting centre in Italy.

The new system is expected to bring numerous benefits to RDM. One such benefit will be enhanced visibility and transparency across the operations enabling them to manage all areas of the business through centralised ERP, planning tools and integrated production reporting. Some key features of Greycon’s solution are focus on optimisation to improve the production efficiency, multi-site planning and customer service functions (consolidating the orders status and information from planning and production, offering ATP/CTP functionality).

Abder Guezour, VP Global Sales at Greycon commented, “We are very pleased with the progress at RDM. We believe the Greycon Suite and Microsoft AX system will minimise the manual, repetitive and time consuming tasks and in consequence streamline their production processes saving both time and money. The replacement of the legacy and mill-based systems by an integrated and modern solution will allow the group to minimise the IT risks, fulfil its objective of adopting the best practices between the mills and support the growth of the business.”
