Expectations for IT in a growing company
Due to accelerated growth of the company's business, the SOLLERS management required a technological solution to unify business processes, create a single centralized automotive ERP system, and reduce costs for process management. The company chose to integrate 1C:Enterprise that fully met all of the requirements, including:
Strong ecosystem for company growth
Strategic partner chosen for this integration, PROF-IT GROUP, completed the following projects:
General production costs decreased by 10%
Cash turnover period was shortened by 7%
Level of excess inventory in warehouses decreased by 20%
New Line MD
Preparation time for regulatory and management reporting was reduced by 300%
The entire cycle of calculating salaries and taxes for more than 24,000 employees is now completed within 1 day
Expenses for time and attendance management were reduced by 40%
Improvements at the plant floor
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:
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.
