We believe that planning and scheduling is an untapped opportunity
to significantly improve plant and company performance.
Nine years ago, the people behind Phenix started sister company Zinata as a supply chain advisory company. We quickly began to realize that production planning and scheduling at the plant level was a blind spot in the supply chain. Our customers were experiencing major performance losses due to unoptimized changeovers and incorrect inventory levels.
We started to help our customers implement Product Wheel scheduling in Excel, and we typically saw 20 – 30% throughput increases in 3 – 6 months. The problem was that the gains were not sustainable. The Excel-based solutions were brittle and complicated. Rescheduling to accommodate changes was particularly inefficient.
We looked around for suitable scheduling software solutions and, finding nothing, decided to build our own. By 2018 our software solution was ready for production, and we have had customers using it since. So in early 2020, we spun off Phenix Software as a stand-alone entity with the mission to develop the best planning and scheduling software for process manufacturers.
We engaged a team with world-class experience scheduling everything from small production sites to billion-dollar global businesses, and world-class software expertise. We’ve built and proven the best Product Wheel based scheduling software out there. And we’ve introduced Aligned Product Wheels, extending traditional Product Wheels with inventory and production design capabilities.
We make excellence in scheduling accessible to all.
Our customers are up and running in weeks, not months. We’ve taken a fragmented, complex picture and come up with an integrated, easy to understand approach.
