Microsoft Dynamics NAV in the production of precast concrete parts.

Success story:

Mönninghoff GmbH & Co. KG produces precast concrete parts for cable duct construction and water supply. The company is one of Europe’s leading providers of reinforced concrete cable ducts and manhole covers. In order to be able to react quickly to market demands and to drive forward product innovations, Mönninghoff GmbH & Co. KG decided on an integrated solution with anaptis as a partner by their side.

Challenge

“We were using an outdated industry solution in combination with further software extensions. By using isolated solutions, we were unable to work efficiently. After all, it was difficult to get an overview of the article structure and the contribution margin calculation was unreliable. In addition, tools for production planning and a consistent storage management were missing.

Furthermore, our processes were not sufficiently or inter-divisional represented. Even if we expected resistance and lack of acceptance of the employees, it was time for us to use an integrated ERP solution. We had already considered some industry solutions. However, these could not be adapted to the extent we needed it.”

Objective

“We need a solution that replaces all isolated solutions and maps all departments so that we can finally work efficiently. We also need a reliable tool for production planning and end-to-end warehouse management.”

Solution

“Ultimately, we chose to partner with anaptis for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The system is open and independently customizable, which was an important factor for us. In addition, the development plan is transparent by Microsoft, so you always know as a user, which renewals are pending.

As indicated earlier, we feared that our employees would not accept the new system. We counteracted this by initially introducing and checking the ERP solution only for individual key users of the specialist departments. This allowed us to ensure that all processes were reproduced in real-time. Ultimately, the benefits of the new software have convinced all employees. The scalability of Dynamics NAV always gives us the advantage of rethinking and adapting processes. All in all, with the use of Dynamics NAV, we have caught up with our innovation backlog and taken a new path. Dynamics NAV supports our daily work along our core and support processes.

Above all, the production planning and control including the production data collection has been extensively optimized. In addition, we now benefit in everyday life from a consistent inventory management and better cost calculation. In addition, a formal description language was developed for the maintenance of the master data in order to establish a standard for the description of articles, for example.”

Enhancements

  1. away from the innovation backlog
  2. merging of all processes
  3. production planning and control
  4. connection of the production data acquisition
  5. continuous warehouse management

What does the head of IT

Lars Lindemann say?

“Without Dynamics NAV and anaptis as partner, we would not have been able to meet the increased demands of our customers and the market. In our industry, the dynamics of manufacturing processes need to be transparent, so we can always get a clear overview of the output.”
