Modern and large-scale production of a corrugated board and corrugated packaging is a hi-tech enterprise at which the accuracy question, both production planning, and execution of production orders is at the center raised. The competitive environment dictates severe conditions of necessity for optimization of expenses under which capacities of the enterprise have to be involved optimum, and volumes of idle times and production expenses have to be minimized. Seeking to lead management processes at the enterprise to the best world practices, the management of the Assol Company initiated search and a choice of the specialized solution which will allow to provide realization of competitive advantages of the company and effective use of capacities.
The OMP CSBS system (Corrugated and Solid Board System) was chosen for implementation in June, 2015 as a result of multi-stage comparison of various systems capabilities and parameters of offers from the suppliers of solutions. The solution of OMP CSBS possesses a synergy of the best practices of the OMP company in the field of production planning of the large industrial enterprises and branch specifics. Realizing all advantages of the solution, specialists of the Assol company came to a conclusion that investments into this project will bring considerable economic effect. SCM Engineering company (nowadays "EnterChain"), part of OMEGALLLIANCE® group, Russian partner of the OMP company was chosen as a contractor and possesses impressive experience of implementation of the solution for planning of supply chain from the OMP company and an industry solution of OMP CSBS in particular.
The customer setthe following tasks which are supposed to be solved within the project on implementation of system of planning and management of a corrugated board production:
- use of a uniform specialized industry platform for planning and production management;
use of instruments of mathematical optimization during the planning and creation of cutting;
balancing of capacities of a corrugating machine and lines - uniform loading of the equipment;
synchronization of plans for a corrugating machine and lines, taking into account work in progress level;
increase in speed of reaction to events in the conditions of existence of actual information on production passing.
It is remarkable that in this project for the first time in Russia the specialized module of OMP system providing functionality of quality control of a solid board production, planning of checks, registration and estimates of results of such checks will be used. Within the project tuning of automatic communication of OMP system with the controler of a corrugating machine of the Fosber SPA company (Italy) which allows to make more than 16 million sq.m/month will be performed.
For implementation of the project the latest localized version of the specialized solution for planning and solid board production management (OMP CSBS) will be used. The main goal of the implementation of this solution is effective use of a corrugating machine and lines at minimum possible level of expenses.
"We are sure that investments into the solution created by us together with the Assol team will bring considerable economic effect in the neareast future" - Sergey Smirnov, the project manager from SCM Engineering (nowadays EnterChain) comments on the beginning of the project , - "Our confidence is based, first of all, on high professionalism and competence of the implementation team from the Customer and openness of the Assol management to implemantation of the best world work practices at the enterprise even during such period of serious tests for the Russian industry, as now."
