LONDON — Nine Dragons Paper Industries Co., Ltd., the largest producer of containerboard products in China, has signed a five-year agreement to use Greycon’s X-Trim to optimize trim efficiency for its paper machines. X-Trim allows paper mills to get the greatest possible output and value from each roll of paper, minimizing waste, and to make production schedules as efficient as possible.
“A critical factor in Nine Dragons’ decision to use X-Trim was the tight integration with SAP,” said Constantine Goulimis, CEO of Greycon. “Building on top of the certified, Powered-by-NetWeaver integration between X-Trim and SAP’s SCM (APO), Greycon was able to demonstrate dynamic pegging to finished and semi- finished inventory. This powerful new feature allows Nine Dragons to optimize its paper machines by consuming just the right amounts of stock. The dynamic nature of the pegging means that inventory reservations are kept as flexible as possible.”
X-Trim was chosen after an evaluation process that spanned more than two years and included extensive on-site trials. “These trials clearly demonstrated the significant benefits X-Trim provided in both trim efficiency and planner productivity,” added Goulimis.
Implementation of X-Trim has already begun, with the first phase scheduled to go live in August 2010.
