Using an order allocation module, Visual8 determined the optimal set of coils to run at each plant in order to satisfy all customer orders while considering a number of criteria including maximum metal recovery, maximum coil width and minimum freight costs. Orders are efficiently married to make the best use of the metal available in a given coil while accounting for plant capacities and order due dates.
