A tailor-made solution at GELG

Choosing the right APS system is not easy, just like finding a reliable business partner. Many things need to be checked; many things need to be considered. GELG has spent several years looking for the right APS solution and business partner. That is why we are really pleased to announce that after such a long search we trusted the experience of eq system specialists and the capabilities of Asprova APS.

GELG is a family company that has operated in the metal industry since 1989. If offers a comprehensive service based on many years of experience in the sector. Its primary operations include sheet metal pressing and machining. Other production processes are systematically improved along with the technologies introduced according to the customers’ needs. Most of the production relies on the designs and individual orders of the clients. Due to the high complexity of the processes, the company was afraid to implement the APS class system.

For several years, we have been looking for a suitable solution for production management and a business partner to help us in this change. During that time, we talked to many companies, but we still had doubts as to whether our processes were not too complicated to be included in the IT system. It turned out that this was not the case: we just had to find specialists with a broad knowledge and a system that is flexible enough to grow with us.

We chose Asprova APS mainly due to the conversion speed of the plans, the possibility of building various schedule variants and the flexibility of the solution itselfThe inclusion in the system of a real, and in our case a very specific production process, was also very important for us.

Before the final decision to implement the computerisation project and develop the concept of implementation of Asprova APS by eq system, we visited two reference companies (ZM Kazimieruk and Profim) which had already cooperated with eq system specialists and used Asprova APS for a longer time. We just wanted to verify whether the solution would work in one-off production and whether the competence and experience of eq system specialists was sufficient to implement such an important project for us. Visits to ZM Kazimieruk and Profim confirmed that eq system specialists were extremely competent and could establish good, long-lasting relationships with their clients. Their help and support definitely do not end with the last day of implementation. We also made sure that Asprova APS works well in one-off production.

We came back from these reference visits with the conviction that we would implement the project with eq system that would develop the transformation and implement Asprova APS. We also really wanted the project in our company to be carried out by Justyna Tołpa, who was responsible for Asprova APS at ZM Kazimieruk.

I consider the cooperation with specialists of eq system as very good. The competence of the people we work with is impressive, just like their approach the project itself and to our specialists. The implementation of this project entails close cooperation between our companies, which makes me very happy. After the analytical project, we received all the details of the concept: eq system specialists once again assured us that our decision to cooperate with them was a good one. I am sure that the implementation will be as smooth as the cooperation so far.

The most important parameter determining the choice of Asprova APS was the speed of the software, and in particular how Asprova APS quickly refreshed and updated plans following changes. Visits to ZM Kazimieruk and Profim confirmed our belief that Asprova APS worked well in planning the actual production, taking into account its specificity and the limitations in the process.

What I expect from the project in the first place is that I will be able to safely and reliably assess the possible consequences of any modifications, and the system will reflect them accordingly. Next, I expect the improvement of KPIs, in particular timeliness and quality. I have no reservations as to the progress of the audit. I hope that further cooperation will be as dynamic and effective as it has been up until now.

  • Improving the stability of the entire production process, thanks to the creation of a central point for managing the production plan, the launch of material balancing processes, carrying out analyses of the exposure of particular resources etc.;
  • Improving the smooth implementation of production plans by identifying bottlenecks;
  • Obtaining a review of the entire production plan and the dependence of individual processes thanks to clear visualisations;
  • Assessing the impact of orders accepted and changes in the priorities of their implementation on the entire plan, by making what-if simulations;
  • Monitoring of the production progress and its impact on the production plan, allowing a quick response to unexpected events.


There is no doubt that the combination of the commitment of our specialists and the extensive knowledge of GELG experts will allow us to achieve all of the benefits in the shortest possible time.
