POLPLASTIC

Polplastic S.p.A. is a leader in the design sector, of molding and painting of plastic material for the automotive industry and the household appliance industry for almost 50 years. In 1969 Valter Poletti opened his own first workshop specialized in making molds for molding plastic materials.

It offers its customers a wide range of services that go from the realization of mathematics for a new project to surface decoration through sublimation, passing through the mold design, molding injection molding, painting and various surface decorations. Polplastic operates in the following segments: automotive (2 and 4 wheels), agriculture, gardening, electronics and vending.

Main Objectives

  • Monitor the progress of production
  • Record the crossing time of the works to be able to update the duration of the cycles configured on management
  • Real-time detection of machine and operator efficiency together with the machine status and general conditions plant
  • Improve the programming process by generating a production plan for the various machines present plant. Plans that must take into account constraints of capabilities, materials and optimization rules.

Implemented solution

Factory Scheduling & Shop Floor Monitor able to acquire and distribute information related to the entire transformation process of the product, starting from the launch of production orders.

The timely availability of the data allows an effective control of the production process by all departments involved, allowing you to follow and verify in real time all the activities that contribute to the production plan implementation.

To improve the programming process of the production a solution was designed and built scheduling that allows the generation of a production plan that takes into account the constraints of capacity, materials and optimization rules.

Thanks to the sedApta Suite solutions, Polplastic has the possibility to schedule production operations on basis of resource calendars, order backlog and work progress with maximum efficiency operational and the minimum work in progress. As a result the proposed production plan optimizes the sequence of production phases with the aim of minimizing waste of time due to equipment and consequent possible inefficiencies.
