The digital factory

Besides the further modernization of the machinery We-Metal BV is busy to set up an integrated IT environment between internal departments. Further digitization of our factory allows us to control our production process even better than we did before.

In July 2014 a new ERP was implemented; Plan de CAMpagne. This ERP system is especially developed for companies in the metal industry. Thus Plan de CAMpagne is linked to our TruTops software, so planning, production and logistics are optimally matched. The alignment has led to an improvement in efficiency and reduced production errors.

Employees are working with scanners and tablets, which are linked to Plan de CAMpagne. By scanning barcodes, production progress can be determined and all products are traceable. Using the tablets employees have an understanding of the work to perform and they can consult drawings directly. This has improved efficiency.
