Companies in the plastic processing industry face major challenges. Customers are making even greater demands on quality of products and loyalty to delivery deadlines. Maximum precision is required in production while changing manufacturing technologies are applied.
The solution: an ERP system which covers the sector-specific requirements of the plastics industry – from individual production through to large-scale series. Using PSIpenta ERP + MES, companies in the plastic processing industry can organize their business processes optimally and simultaneously across individual plants and national borders.
Optimize synergies between design data and production data while being able to respond flexibly to customer requirements. Using the Engineering ERP module, bills of materials are converted directly into a production-oriented structure.
Plants can be combined into one central area for financial accounting/cost accounting. Alongside cross-plant logistical and commercial processes, establishing centralized services for sales and procurement serves as an additional means of ensuring that commercial requirements are handled securely and effectively.
Companies need to optimize their operations using effective variant management if they want to avoid chaotic internal growth, inefficient order processing and rising costs. The solution: Product configuration using PSIpenta Variant Management, directly in the ERP system. This gives the user an effective means of planning and controlling customized product designs.
The availability of materials and capacity are fully factored in using the BOM structure for all orders. This means that a balance between customer requirements and the current production and delivery situation can always be ensured for Sales.
Do you want to further optimize your logistics?
Alongside their actual production processes, manufacturing companies can become even more efficient by optimizing their logistics. This requires precise logistics for materials, starting with optimized delivery planning—taking into account transport volumes—through flexible approaches in bottleneck situations and the requisite access to new incoming goods.
