Liberty Global is the world’s largest international cable company. They operate in more than 30 countries, delivering TV and broadband. The Network Material department maintains the existing network and connects new customers.
Districon created a S&OP tool which aggregates demand for the required network equipment of all European markets. The tool is accessible via a web browser with a secure interface. Multiple users can work with the tool at the same time, each user seeing only the data which he is permitted to. It enables the central network planning team to generate an overview of current and future stock levels. A central overview shows opportunities to reduce stock and makes stock sharing between countries possible. Moreover, suppliers are aware of future orders earlier, which leads to better agreements with suppliers and hopefully reduces lead times.
“The Districon AIMMS application paved the way for more robust supply chain planning process at Liberty Global, the next step is to make it the beating heart of our integrated planning capabilities.”- Willem Vesters VP Global Supply Chain Planning
