In 2013, a broad project to modernise operations was developed and approved in its key aspects: management (production planning), productions processes (their design and optimisation) and operating procedures (modernisation of production processes, with new machinery and systems and with a parallel investment in staff training). For each of these areas, specific project plans were launched, involving more than 500 people from Operations, and now CALEFFI is truly making its way into the age of Industry 4.0.
But the systems are even more critical: the MRPII (Manufacturing Resource Planning) platform, worth 1 million Euro, has been introduced as part of a project that started in 2013 and went live in January 2015. This platform was integrated into MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) and APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling), key applications to achieve a Smart Factory.
Caleffi is now ready to make new steps along its Digital Transformation path.
