Chemical / Pharmaceutical / Cosmetics industry

The laboratory sector, whether chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic or veterinary, today faces multiple challenges related to the manufacturing, sourcing or production of active substances, as well as the marketing of Finished products. Stricter regulations, the relocation of production, the increase in mergers / acquisitions are placing severe constraints on laboratories’ supply chains, forcing them to adapt, while at the same time optimizing their logistics processes.

AZAP contributions to your sector

We have developed solutions for optimizing the Supply Chain of the chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, enabling you to face these challenges.

Reduce your time to market

After years of Research & Development and investments made to develop a product, the transition to industrial manufacturing requires a well-dimensioned Supply Chain. AZAP helps you to anticipate demand during product launches, to optimize your production, storage and distribution capacities, to satisfy your customers’ needs while reducing time to market as much as possible.

Integrate the quality control of your products

To best manage your planned inventory and the effective availability of your products, AZAP integrates the constraints specific to your business: receipt, batch release, storage, and exit conditions (“use by” date, residual life per market, per customer, by product…).

Improve the accuracy of your forecasts through better collaboration

Integrate data from sales, marketing and finance departments into the forecast calculation to make it more reliable. Our collaborative forecasting web portal facilitates all these exchanges. This portal is also well suited to contributions from subsidiaries or remote markets for global collaborative forecasting.

Optimize your finite capacity production plan

AZAP builds, on the basis of the demand forecast, a multi-level finite capacity production plan: chemical, pharmaceutical, packaging. In this production plan, AZAP integrates your industrial, human, subcontracting, processing constraints and those related to active ingredient availability.
The production planning module accompanies the S&OP and MPS processes in the scenario study as well as in the arbitrations (multisite stock policies, work regimes…).

Optimize the distribution of your products

Allocate your available quantities according to various criteria (e.g. customer priorities, subsidiaries, markets …) to best satisfy your customers, including in case of shortage.

“ In addition to the permanent and rich collaboration that we have with AZAP’s business teams, our forecasters and market managers are delighted to have access to a structuring, user-friendly and scalable tool. “
