Production Planning and Scheduling with Simatic IT Preactor
Due to the particularities of its sector, Sistema Azud faces a constant variation in the production planning in regards to be able to satisfy a very variable demand. Therefore, it was essential to control each one of those changes and their repercussion with an APS Software for Production Planning and Scheduling.
On the basis of Siemens Simatic IT Preactor technology, the BLUESMART team approached the connection with its new ERP system (Dynamics NAV) including our exclusive development (LinkTec for NAV).
Additionally, we incorporated new functionalities required by the client, such as the functionality to manage OFs based on the allocation of personnel. In the same way, a customized SMC (Standard Material Control) was established.
Thanks to the BLUESMART solution, Sistema Azud takes advantage of a 80% improvement in the accuracy of delivery dates, as well as a 50% reduction in the inventory of raw materials and a 60% reduction in semi-finished materials.
Preventing production problems and being more profitable thanks to Preactor
“Preactor provides us a common programming environment where all the necessary information is grouped. Thanks to its sequencing rules, which in our case BlueSmart has customized to our needs, a total connection is made between stock, purchases, production orders and sales orders focused on specific customers. “
