In the current issue of the magazine Finished Vehicle Logistics, which is published by Automotive Logistics, the flexis Order Slotting solution that was implemented at Opel is featured in an article called “Opel/Vauxhall: Stable & ready to launch!”. The solution is part of a successful system that was awarded by Germany’s national automotive association VDA in 2015. flexis integrates vehicle order management with production and material planning using In Memory technology.
Opel/Vauxhall combines the software with cross-functional teams for order management, logistics, manufacturing or sales. Their task is monitoring and reacting to changes in orders and material availability. This approach helps to adjust the order sequence based on real-time supply pipelines and to create more reliable production schedules for suppliers and logistics providers.
