Wienerberger Brick Producer Runs Simple Optimizing Production, Traceability, Energy
The future of mill products – including building materials requires simplification
Companies that buy metals, building products, paper, or textiles from mill products companies want the right quality products, in the correct quantity, delivered on time. They want flexible pricing, delivery options, and reliable channel partners.
Mill products companies struggle due to significant complexities such as:
- Complexity and lack of visibility in the global supply chain that limits their ability to promise, create, and deliver profitable orders on time
- Limited control and visibility over asset utilization and maintenance, making it difficult to balance the sometimes competing needs of quality, cost, and safety
- Inconsistent product and price information across channels, which causes lost sales due to delays in responding to customer inquiries on order status, price, and availability
Wienerberger AG is one of the world’s largest producers of bricks, as well as a top producer of clay roof tiles, concrete pavers, and pipe systems in Europe. The company uses the innovative solutions for real-time insights on how to make plant improvements, efficiently save energy, and optimize production controls.
