First, the project was reviewed by the jury and subjected to a cost-benefit analysis. The second measure was a visit of the jurors to Starkraft, to see the solution in a working day environment, in particular the innovative solution for order management, PM2 planning and trim optimization, as well as the supply chain management from start to finish.
