Deadlines, resources and available manpower are a headache for operations / supply chain managers in biotech and pharma.
Between the product mix , the sequence of productions to be organised, the availability and skills of the operators and a budget to be respected, every loss of efficiency must be reduced or eliminated.
"Our work with Rombio has been effective: we have repeatedly used the model established with Michael to have a complete and compact view of the production work.
Michael's responsiveness and the ongoing development of Rombio provide us with an extremely useful strategic vision."
Isabelle Sansdrap, Technical Director
The intelligent assistant generates robust schedules with your resources and constraints, while taking into account uncertainty.
Do more with the resources you have and anticipate your future needs.
Use AI to identify under-utilised (or over-utilised) resources. Plan investments and recruitments in the best possible way.
"Michael Saint-Guillain is the guy who works with NASA. That's how I introduced him to my team.
Thanks to his expertise, we have access to cutting-edge technology that gives us a different perspective on long-term planning management at Takeda Lessines."
Michaël Brion, Head of Digital & Innovation Management, Takeda Lessines
With Rombio, artificial intelligence (AI) creates robust schedules that improve turnover and resource productivity.
How? AI generates millions of schedules in a few minutes, taking into account your constraints, resources and unforeseen events. The best schedules are then proposed to the manager.
Our technology is based on the latest advances in operational research under uncertainty.
A schedule takes many parameters into account:
The tools used for planning today are facilitators, but they are not much different from a pen and paper or a spreadsheet.
Rombio acts more like an assistant and a doctor.
The assistant creates the schedule for the operations manager. The doctor makes a diagnosis and proposes a treatment for those parts of the schedule that could be improved through investments or commitments.
Rombio enables a new approach to planning management and planning integration in the life sciences context.
"What I think is great is that Michael Saint-Guillain is proposing to transform the job of planners...
Instead of spending their time making schedules by filling in cells in spreadsheets, they will leave this more tedious part to the AI which will do it more efficiently.
Their job will be to model the tasks and maintain the models, they will be able to focus on a high value-added job that AI is currently unable to do.
They will no longer be planners, but modelers!"
