Asian Paints Achieves Planning Accuracy and Automation with Blue Yonder
Best Cognitive Business Planning
Asian Paints is India’s largest paint company and the #3 paint supplier in Asia. In an environment of extreme volatility, Asian Paints must bridge the gap between batch planning and incremental planning by pivoting quickly when disruptions occur across the end-to-end supply chain. From raw materials and global production planning to localized fulfilment, the company needs to make fast, fact-based decisions across vertical time horizons and horizontal business functions. Manual processes, consumer-grade tools and traditional functional boundaries represented significant obstacles. A long-time Blue Yonder customer, Asian Paints recently added Luminate Planning capabilities to manage exceptions in near real time, with a truly holistic view of the implications for more than 2000 SKUs and over 30 manufacturing sites. Today, when disruptions occur Asian Paints’ planners can run simulations to understand the impacts upfront, make optimized decisions and immediately take action. In addition to achieving a rapid $5 million in production cost savings via increased planning accuracy and automation, Asian Paints has improved customer service, reduced safety stock and eliminated 8.5 days of manual planning per month.
