Challenges

Before the implementation of 1Ci products, the company faced several challenges that impeded optimal operational efficiency. The primary issues included the following:

The complex production processes involved in production required a meticulous approach to management and monitoring. However, without an advanced ERP system, managing these processes efficiently was a significant challenge.
The tracking of iron and steel products was another major obstacle. Without a reliable tracking system, it was difficult to manage the flow of materials and products through the production cycle, which in turn impacted the efficiency and output quality.
Invisibility of usable sheet metal parts in stock. Post the sheet metal placement of nesting products, the usable sheet metal parts remaining in stock were not visible in the inventory system. This invisibility created a disconnect between actual available resources and recorded stock levels, potentially leading to over-purchasing, under-utilization, or mismanagement of materials.

What was done

The collaboration with 1Ci partner, iQM Technology Software, brought about the implementation of 1C:Drive and 1C:Enterprise to tackle operational issues. Here are the improvements made:

Unified Tracking System. The business management system, developed during the implementation, seamlessly integrates all key business processes associated with production. This includes planning and production management, sales and warehouse management, quality control and assurance, as well as marketing and finance management. This comprehensive integration fosters operational cohesion and enhances efficiency across the entire business ecosystem.
Enhanced teamwork. Initially, production, planning, purchasing, and quality control processes were handled by separate teams, resulting in extended work times. With 1C:Drive business interaction model, teamwork across these processes was significantly improved, leading to more efficient operations.
Stock tracking. A major challenge in the iron and steel sector was accurately tracking the stocks of products like sheets, profiles, and pipes. The developed solution allowed for real-time monitoring of sheet stocks on 1C:Drive screens with high accuracy, eliminating the need for on-site control.
Quality Document Management System (QDMS). In collaboration with the customer's quality department, a QDMS solution was developed to better manage quality processes. 1C:Drive facilitated a more transparent and traceable infrastructure within the organization, ensuring better quality control and compliance.

Before the implementation, there was no traceable structure in production costs which posed a challenge in cost management and analysis. With 1C:Drive, a traceable structure was established, providing clear insights into production costs and aiding in budgetary control and analysis.
