Visual8 deploys Integrated Optimization Solution for Plating Line

Visual8 is pleased to announce the recent completion of another project at Moen Inc.’s Sanford, North Carolina facility. Following the successful implementation of a previous production optimizer, Moen commissioned Visual8 to develop another sequencing tool that could schedule their daily production requirements in order to balance the workload across one of their main plating lines.

Using a mathematical optimization model, directly integrated with their ERP system, the tool is able to dynamically generate a production sequence that optimally maximizes the throughput of a given work center. The tool allows planners to rapidly reschedule and readjust on an ongoing basis.

Visual8 plans to continue working with Moen, developing and expanding the use of integrated sequencers for the remaining finishing lines within the Sanford facility.
