GRP has the solution for automotive industry suppliers

Timely delivery of the correct product quantity in the required order – GRP makes value chains transparent and supports suppliers of the automotive industry to deliver products just-in-sequence to the assembly line.

As a result of ever-changing customer requirements, the increasing volatility of the markets is expected to meet the requirements quickly by automotive suppliers and OEMs. In this process, the company’s ability to react is determined by the economic prospects of each company.
The predictable “just in sequence” production is the biggest challenge. Both predictable and non-influencing variables (eg strikes, weather influences, natural catastrophes) present an ever more relevant contribution to the business long-term success.
This results in simulation and forecasting of the processes is now an indispensable criterion of operational management.

With these growing challenges, GRP is your suitable partner at your side. This allows you to simulate and predict production processes.

Customer situation: Automotive supplier; Call orders from the OEM with order processing at 3 locations. Who, what, when, how and where was edited with paper lists and manual labels. Feedback on production progress was only possible via telephone and intensive internal communication. The unscheduled absence of an employee results in ad hoc planning by the shift leaders.

Problem: Integration of all manufacturing processes in the workflow (no differentiation of plastic, metal, or assembly)

Implementation:

  • Recording of all downtimes and scrap parts on all machines
  • Transfer of the order data to Navision after release of the shifts
  • Real-time reporting of machines and plant areas
  • Shift reports for management
  • Bottleneck analysis of personnel, material and tools

Solution:

  • Use of whole GRP System
  • Master Data Import
  • Process workshops for implementation
  • Application of customer-specific process requirements
  • User trainings for operation, administration and reporting

Result:

  • Running system
  • Easy administration of the individual, respective processes by customers
  • BOM resolution of customer orders on production orders
  • Daily planning of all orders in the GRP system
  • Transfer of all relevant order data to the Navision system
  • Daily automated reporting to management
  • Workshops to elaborate process improvements benefiting from GRP’s knowhow and experience.
