Folosind sistemele APS pentru planificarea productiei si MES pentru managementul activitatilor de productie

Our customers have a method to evaluate their suppliers periodically, and from the moment we implemented MES and APS solutions, these grades have increased, especially at delivery times. Another important benefit: although the implementation took place in 2020, the profitability increased, being among the largest profit that the company Flexibil had.

By implementing MES and APS, Flexibil has achieved much better management of raw materials, production capacity, which has implicitly led to increased productivity and profitability. We have real-time control over all production flows and efficient planning of each operation. Another important benefit is the fact that we can control very well the productivity of each person, the employees being paid according to the volume and quality of the products made

Implementing APS & MES, first step towards Industry 4.0

With the help of Senior Software systems, the manufacturer manages to comply with production recipes (some products include 15-20 ingredients) and execution times, while ensuring the traceability of batches and the quality of products. The data flow has also been streamlined, with the plant currently operating at the highest level of efficiency.

MES is an open solution that lends itself easily to integration with the various systems and components within the company, being a basis for Industry 4.0, the one in which all elements communicate with each other and synchronize with each other.

Using MES, we assimilate the various new products into production much faster. We can reuse production cycles from old products, we can create combinations between products, molds and devices or work centers, we can copy production cycles from existing products.

In APS we see the number of available orders and if it is necessary to adjust the production capacity, to increase or decrease the number of shifts. The Gantt chart gives us a “helicopter view” of production, being a very useful feature. There we can see the working horizon available for different machines and when we know that we will not have to work with certain operators or certain machines, we can reallocate those resources in different locations.
