Approach & Solution

OM Q.jpg


An international manufacturer of hand tools involved Engineering to pursue a Digital Transformation program in Manufacturing Operations Management.
The goals of the digitalisation path were:
  • Reduce information silos in the manufacturing environment
  • Optimize the production activities and the efficiency of the plant processes with relative improvement of the control/monitoring by the management
  • Reduce the use of paper supports
  • Improve accuracy in defining delivery dates to customers.


The MOM solution, provided by Engineering, was created through the integration of three components: MES, Scheduler, Andon.

The MES is the backbone of the solution allowing for bi-directional integration between the ERP system (SAP) and the store. The Scheduler provided production planning functionality, while the Andon provided visualization of production progress on the line.

The solution provided the following macro-functions:
  • Production management and progress
  • Product traceability
  • Management of defective products
  • Management of reworks.
