A world-renowned home-appliance manufacturer who’s deployed previous version of Asprova (year 2000) decided to go for an upgrade knowing that it would help them in a big way.
Before the upgrade, the company decided to use handwritten methods in scheduling along with the obsolete scheduler. However, it cost them lots of trouble (inefficiency, cost, labor, etc.) and needed a long time before a schedule can be made. Keeping up with this fast-paced industry is really no joke.
With this in mind, the company decided to call on Asprova for an upgrade and was not disappointed, “Through upgrading, Asprova overall became more expressive. With so many items and jobs being carried out in small lots, it is important to understand the entire process visually, and Asprova is very effective in that regard…[we] really appreciate their help in reaching our goal.” says an employee who is known of the situation.
Tool to Make Money
And of course, the upgrade came with the much expected effects. Planning time was reduced from 8 man-days to 2 man-days, production lead time reduced 2 weeks to 1 week, and it became possible to answer the delivery dates more quickly and accurately. The company is now aiming for Asprova to be their “tool to make money” by cutting costs on several areas of their manufacturing.
