One of the most important requirements for further increase of business efficiency was improvement of the production management at the plant floor. With the use of 1C:ERP for automotive industry, the following production steps were fully automated:

Improvements at the plant floor

Bill of Materials (BOM) management
Tracking data on the production routes and the lists of operations for processing car parts and assembly units
Regulatory management
Generation of item manufacturing plan
Purchases, components delivery, payment scheduling for suppliers
Standard cost calculation
BOM management (specifications for cars and assembly units) is one of the most challenging parts in building cars to order. Yet with 1C technologies, the generation of production plan takes less than 1 hour in spite of the BOM's complexity (14 nesting levels, 2000 elements).

The 1C:ERP automotive solution was also integrated with the Siemens Teamcenter PDM / PLM system. Moreover, it is planned to develop a production management system at the plant floor in accordance with the concept of "lean manufacturing" and replicate the results of the project to all production facilities of the company.

Automation of all internal processes in a huge company is a very ambitious goal, which we have started to pursue five years ago. The expertise of PROF-IT GROUP and the flexibility of the 1C solutions allowed us to implement the project in full within the scheduled timeframe and within the established budget. After the integration of 1C:ERP we expect steady increase of business efficiency, which we associate mostly with the efficient production management."
