About Celestica & Kinaxis
Celestica is a global electronics manufacturing services company with operations in Asia, the Americas, and Europe. Celestica’s customers work in a highly dynamic environment, and, as such, Celestica needs to be able to respond quickly to changes in end-market demand.
The challenge and benefit
Different Celestica sites around the globe ultimately serve the same customer, creating a complex network of interactions that creates planning latency. The company needed a solution that would allow them to establish one global standard for available-to-promise (ATP) and clear-to-build (CTB) capabilities, so it could speed up its response to customer requests. With Kinaxis RapidResponse, the company united its global production sites and added flexibility and scalability to its planning processes, thereby improving support for its customers and planning teams.
Kinaxis has really become an essential part of our operations.
