Berlin, 14 June 2019 – The PSI Automotive & Industry GmbH has been contracted by KÖNIG METALL GmbH & Co. KG to implement the PSIpenta version 9.2, PSIpenta/SCM Automotive ERP system and a basic MES package. These are to replace the previous system and unify the formerly heterogenous software landscape.
In the first phase, the modules SCM automotive, control station, production data acquisition, storage location management, cost accounting, service management, workflow, sales planning, project management and quality management will be implemented at the main plant in Gaggenau. KÖNIG METALL operates additional plants in Poland, Italy, Canada, Portugal and Russia and can rely on the multi-site functionality in PSIpenta for these sites.
KÖNIG METALL opted for PSI's ERP solution, which already covers the customer requirements in the standard version, due to the strong functionalities and the industry knowledge in the automotive sector. In addition, no further subsystems were necessary. However, the intensive contact during the entire sales process as well as the professional preparation of the workshops and reference customer visits were particularly decisive.
For more than 100 years, the KÖNIG METALL Group has been machining sheet metal, tubes and pipes to customer specifications at seven sites worldwide for the metal and electronics industry, automotive, silencer and airbag industry, for mechanical engineering and various other sectors. The company is, among others, a tier 1 supplier to Daimler AG.
Based on its own software products, the PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs more than 1.900 persons worldwide.
