Resolute reduces waste with Greycon software

Greycon and Resolute Forest Products are in the midst of a global rollout of Greycon’s X-Trim solution as the company’s standard trim optimization system. On July 4, Greycon successfully completed the second stage of a five-wave implementation at Resolute Forest Products in Montreal.


Jay Jordan, Greycon’s sales manager for North America, states: “We are very happy with the progress so far of Resolute’s rollout campaign. Establishing a new system in a company can always be challenging, especially when you have multiple sites that need to be aligned. This is why we are so pleased with the X-Trim solution, it integrates seamlessly with SAP, showing Resolute a significant difference almost instantaneously.”

Greycon’s X-Trim solution has been implemented at eight of Resolute’s pulp and paper mills, and by September 2017 the campaign will be complete. In the end 16 mills will have X-Trim integrated with Resolute’s SAP/APO (advanced planning and optimization) system.

According to Greycon, X-Trim has provided many benefits to Resolute since its implementation, including superior waste reduction. The system is also said to have an easy-to-use interface.
Greycon’s certified “Interface for Industry-Specific Optimizers” for APO allows Resolute quick configuration and deployment throughout each wave of the project.

Greycon is a provider of production planning, scheduling and manufacturing execution systems that have been designed specifically for roll-based and flat sheet industries.
