Even in the digital age, revenue is rising for US paper product manufacturers. The latest reports show it to be a $5 billion sector, with annual growth of 0.6 per cent.

The sector is home to around 360 businesses, which together employ more than 16,000 people. All of these companies, however, are faced with a number of unique challenges in the quest for operational efficiency.

Logistical efficiency
Paper products must be distributed and transported across vast areas in a time- and cost-efficient way. From loading to driving, everything has to be as smooth as possible.

Ethical pressures
Manufacturers must address concerns around deforestation and other environmental impacts, reinforcing sustainable values to clients, regulators and the wider public.

High production costs
High-speed production lines are energy intensive – keeping running costs down has to be a priority if companies are to keep profit margins significant.

“Smart Manager MOM/MES had simplified out production scheduling process. We are able to slot production orders into various production lines and move them around to where they best fit.  If changes need to be made that is easily done by dragging and moving the production order on the schedule. It provides a great visual that we can look at to see how the production is moving along. We really like this product.”
