Dubiel Vitrum makes glass products, including mirrors, construction and special glass, furniture and tiles. In addition, the company implements projects which use glass as a building material or a component. The manufacturing requires not only modern glass processing machines, but also innovative systems to control the entire process. In order to speed up order processing and, thus, increase the satisfaction of current and prospective customers, Dubiel Vitrum has chosen the APS class Asprova system that we offer for production planning and scheduling.
eq system has provided us with great support to choose the right system, which, in our view, is the key to success. We have been thinking about the adequate solution for several years. However, the professional approach and the vast knowledge of eq system experts in production planning and scheduling gave us the chance to see the huge potential in this system. Today, I am convinced that it was a good choice and Asprova APS will enable us to make better decisions to achieve our business goals, comments Leszek Dubiel, Deputy Director at Dubiel Vitrum.
Every day, Dubiel Vitrum carries out advanced projects, which requires equally advanced systems for production. Until now, planning has been manual and supported by a system for production monitoring and recording. However, due to the growing number of orders from customers and the amount of information to be included in planning, the company began to look for a suitable planning and scheduling production system. Moreover, the variability of demand and factors affecting the planning process are constantly growing, so it was necessary to acquire a system that can quickly answer the question: when are we able to make the product?:
Asprova is an advanced production planning and scheduling system for any production process. Each configuration and change of settings of planning functions is available in the system for regular users. This is what distinguishes Asprova from the competitors, emphasises Leszek Dubiel.
Benefits of implementation:
- increasing customer satisfaction by offering shorter deadlines for new inquiries;
- eliminating overtime hours;
- confirming and meeting achievable deadlines;
- synchronising operations throughout the entire plant;
- optimising the production process;
- minimising the number of changeovers.
Managing numerous production processes is a big challenge, especially when these processes force the manufacturer to frequently change the machine over due to different details of products. The use of Asprova APS significantly shortens the time of the changeovers and allows users to map the changes in the production process on an ongoing basis and to define optimisation criteria by themselves.
