TotalEnergies Marketing France deploys FuturMaster

TotalEnergies Marketing France (TEMF), the subsidiary of TotalEnergies Marketing & Service in charge of developing petroleum products distribution and services activities in France, has chosen FuturMaster’s Augmented Supply Chain Planning solutions to gain agility and competitiveness.

TotalEnergies Marketing France will improve the forecasting of its 2,355 service stations by relying on FuturMaster’s new Demand Planning module, which integrates Machine Learning. We deployed this solution during the summer of 2021 across all TotalEnergies stations and Key Accounts in France. This large-scale project called “New Liv” will involve around 20 users and concerns a scope of 56 products and 3,357 customers.

Improving forecasts is part of an end-to-end project to optimise TotalEnergies Marketing France’s Supply Chain processes to give teams more tactical and strategic decision-making visibility.

TotalEnergies Marketing & Services is the world’s 4th largest distributor of land-based fuels. It currently has more than 15,700 service stations worldwide and over 24,858 employees. Its three main businesses are developing the service station network worldwide, producing and marketing lubricants, and distributing products and services for professional markets.

“In a market with relatively stable growth, around 2% per year, TotalEnergies Marketing France aims to become more competitive. In this context, the implementation of a Supply Chain Planning solution seemed essential to us to maintain a high service rate while optimising our distribution costs”, explains Franck Laroche, Project Manager of TotalEnergies Marketing France.

“After launching a call for tenders, we contacted around ten software publishers. We chose FuturMaster because of its teams’ ability to understand and take ownership of our challenges through workshops between the business and IT departments, which led to a more precise definition of our needs. FuturMaster also stood out from other vendors thanks to its innovative Demand Planning solutions integrating Machine Learning.”

TotalEnergies Marketing France chose to deploy FuturMaster’s Forecasting module calculated on a short-term horizon thanks to Machine Learning algorithms and the use of exogenous data such as preventive maintenance, public holidays, temperature forecasts, road traffic.

FuturMaster has teamed up with a consultancy firm specialising in artificial intelligence, to manage, in partnership with FuturMaster’s data scientists, the sourcing and preparation of the data for the correlation research.

“We used to make our forecasts in Excel down to the daily level. FuturMaster’s Forecasting module allows us to be more responsive by establishing a day’s attendance curve per station. In addition, Machine Learning allows us to integrate the impact of exogenous data and to adjust our forecasts accordingly to minimise the risk of disruption,” says Ouiza Delerba, Project Manager, TotalEnergies Marketing France.

In the context of a health crisis, the agility of the Supply Chain is more crucial than ever.

“We decided to trust FuturMaster to help us with three major issues: improving the reliability of our forecasts, optimising replenishment costs, and finally reinforcing lengthy visibility to facilitate strategic decision-making related to the sizing of our production tools. The New Liv project will enable TotalEnergies Marketing France to have all the players collaborate around a single solution and to gain agility in operational and strategic decision-making”, adds Franck Laroche, Project Manager of TotalEnergies Marketing France.

“TotalEnergies Marketing France’s New Liv project is an example of implementing an agile and resilient Supply Chain. Faced with the current context, FuturMaster’s mission is to increase visibility and reactivity by enabling optimal synchronisation between tactical/strategic planning and execution. Through our unique Machine Learning-based technology offering, TotalEnergies Marketing France has very accurate visibility of its sales forecasts. It can guarantee the availability of its products in its service stations. Resilience and agility are at the heart of this ambitious project, which demonstrates FuturMaster’s unique know-how,” explains Yacine Zeroual, Southern Europe General Manager at FuturMaster.

Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët 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.

“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,” explained 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,” added Mathilde Bechetoille, Supply Chain Planning Manager at Mumm Perrier-Jouët.

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.

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,” said Morvan.

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,” added Loïc Morvan.

“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.”

“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“, said Yacine Zeroual, Southern Europe General Manager at FuturMaster.
