WHY PLANNERS CHOOSE LSI AND PREACTOR

WHY PLANNERS CHOOSE LSI AND PREACTOR


“Although we are a 70% make-to-stock manufacturer, Preactor allows us to manufacture what our customer’s need, when they need it. It allows for the flexibility to mix made to stock and made to order items into our overall production mix while maintaining customer service levels. Preactor allows us to validate our near-term schedule while planning inventory in the long term. This allows us to balance lower inventory levels while growing our business.”

- Patrick Hoffmann, Director of Inventory, Samuel strapping Systems Inc. USA

  • It takes us too long to react when demand changes
  • We never have the right raw materials on hand
  • Our planning system does not consider capacity constraints
  • We are planning in monthly or weekly buckets, but demand is changing every day
  • Our planning system does not consider shelf life
