Scania XPS in Södertälje develops and produces fuel pumps and injectors to Scania’s and Cummin’s Diesel engines.
The production is automated and the rate of the production line is high. Scania had a hard time following the stock balance in the production as it was challenging to report what was consumed due to the high production rate and demand on traceability.
The challenge was to integrate the whole production line with M3 in order for the reporting to be automatic with RFID tags on every individual injector and pump. By doing this, Scania can now monitor the stock balance live in M3 which enable full visibility and decrease the risk substantially of material shortages in the production.
M3 is now also fully integrated with the pick-to-light system at the beginning of the line and further along the whole production line. Both material issuing and the scrap process is handled.
The injectors and pumps are marked and packed at the end of the production line. Scania needed a better support of how to pack the items efficiently without disruption as the line rate is high.
Meridion chose to use the new technology in Infor M3 where apps were built for packing. These visualized and secured the whole packing process. After the implementation, packing is enabled without disruptions with only one scanner in the app.
The new technology, H5 SDK, implicate great opportunities to visualize the process without impacting M3’s core which makes it entirely secured for eventual movement to the M3 Cloud.
