This whopping growth of the market is attributed to the growing demand for manufacturing execution system solutions in countries like China, India, and Brazil.

An appliances manufacturing company of a famous industry group were experiencing losses, due to indigent management. The manufacturing issues were identified by arodek team, the best-equipped resolutions were provided in stock maintenance, vendor payment, removing traditional method of maintaining documents of each process.

Solutions and benefits are described below-

Replacing spreadsheets and Paper Notes- With SAP MES integration, Document Management System was installed to replace every data input in the system rather in spreadsheets and paper notes. The data are captured through the use of document scanners.

Reduce Inventory- The system will spontaneously update the inventory records, new production, excess goods in storage, warehousing, and goods in transit.

Production process analysis –Comparing the production process of the past period and present tracked as per user’s requirements.

Production and Planning – With MES implementation various information related to inventories, stocks status, warehouse management maintained virtually in real time . Thus, forecasting production of new units and planning behind the entire task gets operated with actuals and comparative data from system.
