BIC Increase Production Capacity with Blue Yonder Production Planning

BIC is a world leader in stationary, lighters, and shaver products, with consumers purchasing 32 million BIC products every day. When BIC wanted to increase the planning horizon and accuracy of their manual sequencing process at their Charlotte packaging facility, they implemented Blue Yonder’s factory planning capability. The result was a 40% reduction in changeovers and 20 hours per week of additional production capacity.
