Our client, a significant player in the cosmetics industry, wants to secure the production of its subcontractors by improving collaborative planning.

KEPLER offers operational support to analyze practices and co-construct target processes to ensure production objectives.


  • A co-packing activity, representing €35M in expenditure across the entire value chain (production of POS/lots), Mass Market-oriented
  • A team of 11 gliders, each managing 1 to 2 copacker
  • A relatively low Supply Chain maturity subcontractors, some of which are very poorly computerized
  • Strong seasonality of promotional operations creating muscular stress on flows, especially during two high points


Category: Improving Responsiveness and Securing Availability

  • Improving the quality of manufacturing schedules sent to suppliers

The first step in this operational approach was to alert our client’s planning teams about the industrial constraints of their subcontractors.
The target processes have then been defined in collaboration with the client and its subcontractors in a test & learn logic.
Under less than three months, the target process and tools were designated. The routines were tested over an additional 3 months period.
