ArcelorMittal Dofasco, a subsidiary of ArcelorMittal, has selected Quintiq to provide a maintenance planning and scheduling solution for its Hamilton, Ont., steelmaking operations.

Quintiq, a provider of advanced planning and scheduling software, will be supplying ArcelorMittal Dofasco with a Quintiq Workforce Planner solution, which will be used to maximize on-time maintenance performance, reduce maintenance staff overtime, and to lower the overall costs of its maintenance organization.

The Quintiq Workforce Planner software interfaces with any maintenance work order system and is able to optimize maintenance workforce and operations. The software captures, processes and visualizes data in a way that will allow planners to reduce planning times and improve scheduling effectiveness across multiple systems.

“We’re pleased to further our partnership with ArcelorMittal and expand our footprint in the metals industry with maintenance planning and scheduling,” said Victor Allis, CEO of Quintiq. “We are confident that our software will help ArcelorMittal Dofasco achieve more with their maintenance workforce.”
