UPB Group has a lot of interesting business cases where simulation has helped to achieve better performance results. For the first simulation use-case, Alto 4.0 decided to begin with the prefabricated concrete production. Based on our experience, there are two main problems which we try to solve with the simulation.
Our main business is in Scandinavia, but the prefabricated concrete factory is located in Latvia. We use ships to get all the prefabricated concrete elements across the Baltic see. There is always a dilemma connected with this kind of delivery – a) should we book all the ship with our products, b) should we deliver our products with smaller batch deliveries. Case A puts huge pressure on our prefabricated concrete factory’s warehouse, case B, on other hand, is a huge challenge for our logistics team.
