3 Supply Chain Network Optimization at Lhoist
Lhoist Group Lhoist is a privately held lime company Headquarters in Limelette, Belgium, Europe Lhoist is the leading lime manufacturer in the world with over 70 operations in: Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, England, Spain, Portugal, North- and Central America Brazil Supply Chain Network Optimization at Lhoist Lhoist Group is using an APS (Advanced Planning Software) as part of its DSS (Decision Support System) for its strategic and tactical “supply chain network optimizations”. Development started in 1991, research project Lhoist (P. Sevrin) – UCL (Y. Pochet) Specificity: divergent product structure with linked co-products (grain size, physical and chemical quality, variable recipes,…)  difficult flow balance constraints within the plants. The system and the optimization approach have been used extensively within Lhoist Group for many strategic studies. The system will never be a “decision system” and will remain a support to challenge creativity and entrepreneurship.
