Poltrona Frau, was founded in Turin in 1912. In the 1930s it had already become a status symbol. From 1926 it became the official supplier of the Italian royal family, the Savoy. Since then, it has furnished all the most famous buildings in the world.
Poltrona Frau has introduced a MES system for production management in the Interiors In Motion (IIM – specialized in the outfitting of cars, trains, aircraft, yachts) division with the aim of streamlining and improving the execution of controls at the production lines by monitoring the production rate and the work cycles.
The project was developed starting from the “Ferrari Cabinetry” Pilot line dedicated to the production of fittings for the Ferrari F164 model. Subsequently, the solution was extended to the entire production of the IIM division, covering further Ferrari, Land Rover, McLaren and Avio models, and also including the production of dashboards and panels containing airbags („Bag“ components).
The project involved the implementation of the following sedApta application modules:
Poltrona Frau IIM was awarded the LEANicon2020 award from the AILM association (Italian Lean Managers Association) with the ‘’Workplace Organization & MES project Implementation – Upholstering Department’’, thanks to the sedApta solution that allowed the implementation of the new organizational processes. At European level, AILM is the largest association for those involved in continuous improvement projects.
