Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët, a subsidiary of the Pernod Ricard Group, improves the performance of its supply chain with FuturMaster
Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët, the Cognac and Champagne prestige subsidiary of Pernod Ricard, the world’s second-largest wine and spirits company, is launching a supply chain planning project with FuturMaster’s Demand and Supply Planning solutions in Cloud mode to improve its customer service rate while optimising stocks.
They will deploy the FuturMaster solutions by July 2021 in the two Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët entities, namely the Cognac entity (Martell) and the Champagne entity (Mumm and Perrier-Jouët). The scope of the project will be based on the demand, production and supply planning modules.
The improvement of Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët’s supply chain performance is part of Pernod Ricard’s “Transform & Accelerate” group project, which aims to transform the organisation of certain functions and working methods to accelerate growth.
Improving the service rate while optimising stocks
“The main objective of the project carried out with FuturMaster is to replace the planning tool in place on demand, production and supply planning perimeters. Our goal is to improve the performance of our supply chain to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” explains Loïc Morvan, Supply Chain Director at Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët.
“After launching a call for tender, we received various proposals from software publishers. We selected FuturMaster for its business expertise and the ergonomics of its solution,” explains Mathilde Bechetoille, Supply Chain Planning Manager at Mumm Perrier-Jouët.
Improve the accuracy of sales forecasts
The FuturMaster Demand Planning module will allow Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët to manage all their products and customers’ forecasting.
The FuturMaster Dashboard, a real cockpit for the Demand Planner, will enable it to prioritise the SKUs to be analysed to work by exception and concentrate on high value-added tasks.
This new work methodology will enable the company to obtain more accurate forecasts and the demand planning teams to improve their productivity via an ergonomic, user-friendly tool.
Improve the reliability of production plans
Pernod Ricard’s Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët subsidiary has chosen to deploy FuturMaster’s Production Planning module to deliver a production plan by SKU. The objective is to establish bottling and packaging programs and identify the supply needs in components and liquid manufacturing to provide the necessary information to the scheduling and supply departments.
FuturMaster, via its integrated Bill of Supply (BOS) and Optimiser, considers all of the exogenous production planning constraints of Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët for both Cognac and Champagne.
“The planning process differs from Cognac to Champagne. We needed a sufficiently robust solution to be able to manage both pull flows (MTO) and push flows (MTS) to calculate the production plan sequences starting from the bottling/capping plan and going up to the assembly plan for Cognac and the riddling plan for Champagne,” explains Loïc Morvan.
Optimise supplier supply management
The FuturMaster solutions automatically integrate the elements of the production plans from the Production Planning module as a basis for the development of a dry material purchase plan.
“FuturMaster allows us to obtain a dry material purchase plan that takes into account the minimum quantities to be ordered and the delivery times of our suppliers. This saves our teams valuable time,” adds Loïc Morvan.
Enhancing supply chain agility
In the current context, supply chain agility is more important than ever.
“We decided to trust the FuturMaster teams to help us with three major issues: improving our service level, optimising our stocks and finally getting all the players to collaborate around a single solution and thus gaining agility in operational and strategic decision-making“, says Loïc Morvan.
“Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët’s project is fully in line with FuturMaster’s value proposition. It involves reconciling agility, resilience, and responsiveness to strengthen the Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët subsidiary’s capacity to manage its supply chain. Our client will be able to take advantage of FuturMaster’s unique data model to synchronise all the decisions made in its organisation’s different process levels. This project demonstrates FuturMaster’s ability to support an ambitious and decisive transformation in the fulfilment of the Pernod Ricard Group’s strategy“, concludes Yacine Zeroual, Southern Europe General Manager at FuturMaster.
