Caravan manufacturer receives production software from a single source

Berlin, 9 July, 2020 – Hobby-Wohnwagenwerk Ing. Harald Striewski GmbH has commissioned PSI Automotive & Industry GmbH to migrate the existing ERP system PSIpenta to the current version 9.3. PSI is also supplying a new Manufacturing Execution System (MES) including shop floor scheduling. Hobby will receive the ERP and MES solutions based on the modern PSI platform from a single source.

The long-time PSI customer Hobby-Wohnwagenwerk has successfully used the ERP standard PSIpenta for its production control since 2001. In addition to further modules, the migration to the current version 9.3 also includes extensive project and consultancy services. Moreover, a new MES including shop floor scheduling, SCADA and operating data acquisition (ODA) stations will be installed and implemented in the production.

In the future, the new MES will optimize planning and transparency in production and production-related areas. With the new version, Hobby can increasingly use the standard functionalities and processes in the system and also replace the previous adjustments.

"With the implementation of the ERP and MES solutions from a single source, we can maximize our potential in production," summarizes Stefan Schulz, Head of IT at Hobby-Wohnwagenwerk.

Hobby employs over 1,200 people in its Fockbeker caravan plant near Rendsburg in Schleswig-Holstein. In one of the largest production sites for caravan and motorhome construction in Europe, vehicles of the highest quality are produced using the most modern systems.

Based on its own software products, 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 2,000 persons worldwide.
