The Client

Weyerhaeuser is one of the world’s largest producers of softwood lumber, pulp, paper packaging products. SSI’s client was Weyerhaeuser Fine Papers Division.

The Challenge

Weyerhaeuser picked SSI to help analyze integration of Willamette Industries’ Fine Papers’ Division with Weyerhaeuser. SSI developed a supply chain optimization model and helped the client in its integration analysis.

 The Solution

The key processes involved in the procedure were data fulfillment, procurement planning, manufacturing planning, finishing planning, distribution planning, raw materials planning which was done by determining optimal utilization of internal and external fiber sources, and recommending make versus buy decisions.

 The Results

Through SSI’s implemented supply chain optimization module Weyerhaeuser was able to save $11M in its first year and just after three years of implementation of the module $40M + were saved.
