1C:ERP Manages the Full Production Cycle of Askona Furniture
Monthly production output of 50 thousand units equals 10 million individual production operations.
To guarantee top-notch product quality and timely delivery of orders to its clients, the holding needed to facilitate prompt interaction between distant divisions, speed up the exchange of management information, improve planning, and establish real-time supervision of clients’ orders at various production sites.
The 1C:ERP Enterprise Management was the solution to address these needs.
1C:ERP has become the core of a single production management system for the holding’s ten production sites. Its deployment resulted in unified business processes and easy management of complex regulatory and reference information containing thousands of names and versions of manufactured products.
A product configuration tool included with the system is now used to develop specifications. It is powerful enough to model a product of any complexity and promptly select the materials required to produce it. With automatic checks for data completeness, specification errors have become a thing of the past. This solution has significantly accelerated both product and process design.
Procurement management was optimized to ensure that production divisions receive materials, semi-finished products, and components right on time.
The new management system also enabled efficient production planning. 1C:ERP is used to assign each employee tasks for specific production operations during their shift. The system automatically logs operations in real-time with details down to a particular employee and product, so assignments can be quickly adjusted with the account of both operations that have already been performed and current production demands.
Management receives information about the completion of each task and surplus materials in production and warehouses in real-time.
The flexible system for analyzing production costs serves as an excellent tool for variance analysis, thus helping to optimize expenses and manage the profitability of production.
Comprehensive automation with 1C:ERP covered all primary functional blocks and processes from annual planning and production to consolidated reporting for the holding. With the new system in place, planning is 30% quicker, the preparation of management consolidated statements has been accelerated by 10 times, operational and administrative costs are 10% lower, and it takes 30% less time to complete client orders.
1C:ERP has truly become the digital platform for the successful development of Advanced Furniture Technologies in the years to come!
