Ruscam selects ICRON Detailed Scheduling to optimize production planning of its five production plants in Russia

ICRON, a leading software provider of Optimized Decision Making and Supply Chain Optimization solutions, today announced that its Detailed Scheduling solution will be deployed by Ruscam Glass Packaging, a Şişecam Group company. Ruscam ­– which produces specially designed glass packaging for numerous industries including mainly beverage & food, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics ­– will utilize the ICRON solution to achieve integrated planning and optimization across the operations of its five production plants in Russia.

With the implementation of the new ICRON solution, Ruscam aims to fully automate, integrate, and optimize its production planning and scheduling activities. ICRON’s Detailed Scheduling solution ­– a fast, flexible, and scalable decision support platform – will be integrated with Ruscam’s existing systems, enabling the glass packaging manufacturer’s planners and decision makers to visualize, synchronize, and manage their planning and scheduling processes more effectively.

With the ICRON solution, Ruscam’s management will be able to attain visibility and control over their multi-site production operations, boost production capacity, minimize inventory levels, and improve due-date management, delivery performance, and bottom-line results.

  • Hakan Çopur, Supply Chain Group Director at Ruscam, commented: “ We selected ICRON’s Detailed Scheduling solution because we are looking to fully automate our production planning and scheduling operations, which are currently conducted using Excel and other local tools. The implementation of the ICRON solution is a big step towards achieving complete planning automation and control.”
  • Cem Atasever, Ruscam’s Production Planning Manager, spoke about his expectations for the ICRON implementation: “ The preparation of our production plans needs to be made more efficient and effective, as this will enable us to realize our business targets by improving production capacity usage and giving us visibility over our inventory levels.”
  • Mine Kaçan, ICRON’s Product Management Director, remarked: “We are excited that Ruscam has selected ICRON to deliver an integrated production planning and optimization system. One of the main reasons that Ruscam decided on ICRON is that we were able to provide good customer references for our Detailed Scheduling solution. This means that our satisfied customers helped us convince Ruscam that ICRON was the best choice. Other important factors in Ruscam’s decision to select ICRON were our proven industry expertise and the fact that we don’t merely offer a software solution, but are able to deliver a holistic, scalable solution platform.”

About Ruscam, Şişecam Glass Packaging Group

Producing specially designed glass packaging of various volumes and colors for the food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics sectors, Şişecam Glass Packaging Group has a history that dates back to 1935, when the first plant was founded in Paşabahçe-Beykoz. All companies and plants operating as part of the glass packaging were incorporated under Anadolu Cam Sanayii AŞ in 2000. The Group’s domestic production plants further grew with the addition of Bursa Yenişehir and Eskişehir plants in 2006 and 2013 respectively, further cementing the leadership of the Group in the industry.

Şişecam Glass Packaging ​Group aims to become an international glass packaging supplier that is a regional leader thanks to investments and cooperation initiatives in surrounding countries, and owes half of its turnover to foreign operations. As such, its first investment outside Turkey was the acquisition of the Mina Plant in Georgia in 1997. This investment was followed by the establishment of Ruscam Glass Packaging company which was founded to follow the opportunities offered by the dynamic structure of the Russian market and to carry out the operations in Russia in 2002. Ruscam started to operate the Gorokhovets Plant as of 2002, the Pokrovsky Plant as of 2004, the Ufa Plant as of 2005, the Kirishi Plant as of 2008, and the Kuban Plant as of 2009. Şişecam Glass Packaging has most recently acquired an existing glass packaging plant in Merefa, Ukraine in 2011, thus increasing its production capacity abroad to 1.3 million tons.

​The Şişecam Glass Packaging Group currently has a total production capacity of 2.3 million tons per year, which makes it the biggest glass packaging producer in Turkey, and the fifth​​ biggest in the world. The business continues its production in a total of ten plants, three of which are in Turkey, five in Russia, one in Ukraine and one in Georgia.
