Clearwater Paper

Project Overview: How Clearwater uses ImpactECS

Calculating standard and actual costs by grade was the main focus of the ImpactECS implementation at Clearwater.  With ImpactECS, the Clearwater team is able to gain access to:
– Detailed standard cost and actual costs by paper machine and grade for multiple production locations

– Variance reports comparing standard and actual costs for extruder machines

– Calculations of furnish and chemical (raw material) usage based on a forecasted production plan

– Calculated profitability by paper grade by comparing invoice data to standards

– Scenario analysis that trends run costs and performs direct comparisons between runs
