Customer satisfaction is a key driver of business success, and it is essential to meet or exceed customer expectations to remain competitive in today's market. OTIF (On-Time-In-Full) measures the percentage of orders that are delivered to customers on time and in full.

A well-planned production schedule can help improve OTIF scores by ensuring that products are produced and delivered according to the agreed-upon schedule and in the desired quantity and quality. Companies that continously pursue a high OTIF score can improve customer satisfaction and build a loyal customer base

Making the complex simple 

The Grain combines state-of-the-art data analytics & optimization techniques with years of experience in supply chain processes. We realise that every production environment is confronted with its own specific issues. Our team of process & optimization experts is able to understand those specifics and build a model to deal with it and embed it in the Checkmate application. We also realise that planners are no mathematicians or programmers, and are under constant pressure to adjust plans. That is exactly the reason why we want to hide away all that complexity and provide planners with an easy to use and intuitive application.

AI and the planner hand in hand

The capacity of computers to solve planning problems far exceeds that of the human brain. However, ensuring that algorithms get the right inputs is not possible without the help of experienced production planners. Capturing all planning expertise in a knowledge system is essential for building a loop between human planners and AI systems. The more an AI system can learn from planners, the better and more comprehensive its recommendations become to support the planners in their role

Technology alone does not provide the ultimate solution. Expert knowledge in combination with technology is still the key to success. That's where Checkmate makes the difference.
