Valio Ltd is Finland’s biggest milk processor and receives the majority of the milk produced in Finland. Valio produces products in over 10 localities across Finland. Separate factories have specialized in manufacturing different kinds of high-quality products. EP-Logistics has earlier been involved in developing Valio’s logistics and operations in multiple assignments.
To make daily producing of different kinds of special milks, yoghurts, snacks and jams more efficient, Valio needed a production scheduling tool which optimization algorithms take special characteristics of production processes into account. The functionalities of the tool were defined together with Valio’s production specialists. Based on these specifications, EP-logistics created a custom-made production scheduling tool for production planning.
