Essilor Harmonizes Financial and Logistic Flows to Support Global Strategy
In 2006, Essilor produced over 200 million lenses in its 16 manufacturing plants, offering the largest range of products on the market. In 2006, the number of lenses manufactured by the group exceeded 200 million. Essilor's logistics teams manage the largest range of products on the market. One of the key challenges for the team is manufacturing personalised products to order from semi-finished stocks. Today, Essilor's entire logistics operation is ensured by Oracle E-Business Suite - from commercial and stock management to bills of materials to distribution and production planning. The implementation of Oracle Manufacturing has facilitated Essilor's transition from monthly to weekly production planning. As a result, Essilor has improved how it reacts to the market and now maintains a constant stock-to-sales ratio.
