Berlin, 9 November 2016 – Wietersdorfer Zementholding GmbH, a subsidiary of the international player Wietersdorfer Group, has contracted PSI Logistics GmbH with the implementation of PSIglobal. The construction materials specialist, headquartered in Austria in Klein St. Paul near Klagenfurt is represented with production sites and sale units worldwide. With the PSI standard software for the strategic planning, optimisation and control of logistic networks, w&p Zement is implementing a cross-border optimisation of its production and delivery network.
The innovative PSIglobal allows for the reproduction, continuous analysis and composition of national, continental and global supply chains as well as an optimal site planning. Renowned consulting companies as well as market-leading industrial companies and service providers throughout the sector optimise more than 100 million transportation orders and consequently improve their CO2 balance in accordance with EU Norm DIN EN 16258 every year. The strategic IT system from the PSI Logistics Suite compiles operative data for management analyses. Its scenario technology makes it possible to configure processes and transportation chains for multi-stage and multi-modular logistics networks as well as to identify key parameters and sensitivities. Integrated analysis and simulation models allow for the variation of data in model investigations and equilibrate them to an optimum.
w&p Zement will first of all analyse the sites and transportation routes of the cement business in Austria, Italy and Slovenia with PSIglobal. In subsequent steps, the company will prepare the key performance indicators determined with the IT system and then report options for optimisation for the network through structured evaluations.
On the basis of its own software products, PSI AG develops and integrates complete solutions for energy management (gas, oil, electricity, heat, energy trading), production management (mining, metals, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics) and infrastructure management for transport and safety. PSI was founded in 1969 and employs 1,650 persons worldwide.
