2008 Winner Profile

Sappi Fine Paper North America

Project Description:
Sappi developed a knowledge management system to control more than $600 million it spends on raw materials. The company integrated data from a variety of systems, including plant floor control, mill execution and ERP, providing a single view of costs and material usage. The paper manufacturer developed a custom Microsoft .Net-based program to merge the data from the multiple systems. Users can now view which jobs are currently running on a paper machine at any given time and which are planned, enabling them to adjust the product mix dynamically. The system has helped the company generate an additional $3 million in operating income.
