AKT plastikářská technologie Čechy, spol. s r.o. will for the evidence of unfinished production utilise the DCI MySite solution from Aimtec, a major supplier of IT systems. DCI MySite, a specialised warehouse management and administration product will provide a detailed overview of unfinished production, identify order locations and enable faster and better quality inventories.
The Jablonec AKT plant is a subsidiary of a German parent company AKT altmärker Kunststoff-Technik GmbH in Gardelegen. Aside from its Czech Republic branch, the parent company has further representation in Spain and Mexico. Its main activity is the production of plastic parts for car interiors, e.g. glove boxes, plastic engine covers or blowers. The customer base comprises mainly of leading worldwide car manufacturers – VW, Audi, Škoda Auto, Opel, Volvo, Seat, or an automotive supplier – Johnson Controls. Another significant customer is Miele technika s.r.o., renowned for its quality household appliances.
AKT‘s current company information system did not support simple and accurate evidence of unfinished production and transfers between the two company warehouses in Jablonec nad Nisou. This, combined with ‚paper‘ production booking, where it is difficult to check if paper reports correspond with the actual situation, was the reason why system showed significant differences from reality. For these reasons, AKT sought such a warehouse management system that would ensure a smooth and transparent flow of production without interruptions.
These requirements were best met by a logistics management system DCI MySite from the Pilsen based company AIMTEC a.s., which on the strength of its extensive experience and investment into the development of this solution guarantees meeting the set targets. The main objective of this project is an accurate evidence of unfinished goods inventory and identification of stock positions using barcode technology. Another benefit are fast inventories of all stock.
During the course of September this year, an analysis was carried out with the view to clearly define what will the implemented Warehouse Management System support. The implementation project commenced at the beginning of October. Live operation start is planned for the first day of January 2010.
