˃ Definition & set up of a comprehensive Master & Production Schedule system involving all functions along the value chain (governance, processes, KPI set, operational meetings and reviews).

> Development and deployment of a planning tool at station level to monitor and anticipate workload / capacity balance

Results

>  Improvement of workload / capacity balance by 15%

> Production performance in line with the recovery plan – No further postponement

> Risks anticipated and development of an anticipation mindset
