The company

Manufacturer of light designer parts

The problem

The company manufactures custom and stock products. It was faced with the typical dilemma: the parts in stock were never the proper ones, the delivery deadlines were not met and the machines produced parts for stock instead of parts for the contract.

The approach

MELIORE has designed an application that integrates with the existing MRP to schedule the production plant.  The schedule uses the best resources to deliver orders, and uses the resources not used to manufacture orders to work on parts for stock according to an advanced forecasting system.

The benefits

The company has reduced the manufacturing lead times by 33%, increased productivity by 15% and has a rate of parts available in stock improved by 50%.
