Sanofi, a global healthcare leader, has chosen to implement a new production planning and optimization solution developed by Optasoft utilizing the advanced optimization technology AIMMS.

In need of a common planning platform for all departments, Sanofi requested an advanced master scheduling and optimization solution. The use of AIMMS advanced optimization models, along with AIMMS PRO, the enterprise-wide app platform, will allow Sanofi Chinoin Chemical Site staff to quickly calculate optimal plans for master scheduling that will consider not only lead times and stock levels, but also resources (units, human resource and tools) and their constraints and capacities.

Within minutes, Sanofi will now be able to optimize and compare different scenarios which will lead to significant cost savings. Optasoft began implementation of AIMMS December 2012 and hopes to complete the implementation by December 2013.
