Objective really took a constructive approach during the full MES process
Petrik Erens - Supply Chain Manager Holmatro

Holmatro hydraulic tools and systems are used globally during rescue operations, industrial applications and special tactics. These types of applications demand reliable materials under all conditions. To ensure that Holmatro users can perform their specialist work optimally, we aim at being the best-in-class market leader by deploying trailblazing technology.

Challenge

  • Have a better grip on the production/assembly process
  • Catering quickly for customer requirements
  • Limiting non-value adding actions during production 
  • Need for a system to optimise employee work efficiency
  • ​The system also had to deal flexibly with the modular execution of the items and the continuously changing work environment

Solution

Objective MES is deployed for

  • Process monitoring (which order is at which stage)
  • Central prioritising (which order has priority during production) and tracing
  • Better capacity planning, which means that the stock size is limited (just-in-time delivery to the workstation)
  • Digitising technical drawings
  • Check of every step in the production process

Results

  • Visibility through the full production process
  • The safety stock can be determined accurately
  • Reduction in searching for orders and order statuses by 80%
  • Cost and space savings because of lower stock levels
