Thanks to close cooperation with its partners, PZ HTL keeps track of changing market trends and innovations in the medical and laboratory industry all over the world. Striving to meet the requirements of its customers, the company places strong emphasis not only on creation of new products or upgrading already existing ones, but also on improvement of the processes used to manufacture them.
One such challenge which the company faced in 2016 was the modernisation and streamlining the processes in the range of logistics and production – beginning from the purchase of raw materials necessary for the production of final products up to their shipment to its customers.
In starting to perform an intended objective, PZ HTL turned to SKK S.A. company with asking for a proposal of comprehensive solution. It also had to meet such requirements as: FIFO-compliant order handling, stable data exchange with the company's master system (IFS) and possibility of collaboration with other ERP systems - if the company would decide to change it in the future. Taking into account all the needs and expectations of the client, SKK prepared a system project for mobile management of the warehouse and recording the production operations.
Apart from its storage areas, PZ HTL also has several production departments. These are injection moulding, pad printing, assembly line, quality control and packing station. In all these locations, a large number of data recording operations are performed. Until now data was recorded and entered into the IFS system manually - being rewritten from the order sheet to the computer. It was very time-consuming, caused delays and considerable risk of mistakes.
Benefits of implementation:
- Acceleration of warehouse operations
- Acceleration of production tasks recording
- Uniform, permanent labelling the products and warehouse locations
- Elimination of paper documents
- Minimization of errors
- Increase of labour productivity
