Match boats to orders to routes under constraints.

The objective of the logistics team is to always get the right boat (tugboats, barges, containers) at the right location at the right time to minimize delays with cost under control.

However, there is only a limited number of barges, each barge can only be used for some products, they have a specific constraints (routes, tonnage, speed...). And many things are thrown at the logistics team every day: asset failures, production changes, absentees, yet customers requirements and timeline are unchanged. As such, any planning would soon decay, requiring frequent updates.

Metronome was set to offer a continuous planning system to help match stock, boats, human resources to production batch to serve customer orders:

  • Stop planning in Excel & reduce manual work
  • Facilitate exchange and sync with ground workers
  • Leverage event and performance data for strategic investment decisions

The solution supports the planning department with a cloud based plugin to their production planning system in their ERP, a smartphone app to track execution on the ground and a bespoke dashboard for the leadership on a big wall.
