Global Manufacturer Enables Seamless Information Flow Between Manufacturing And Planning Systems
The client is the world's largest manufacturer of single oxide crystals and a leading producer of selected optical components based on crystals. Imperatives of growth and competitive differentiation were driving the client to increase process yield, improve quality assurance, monitor work-inprogress, and ensure effective asset utilization. Hence, monitoring the process yield was high on the priority list of the company. Patni conducted a business process study and systems audit at the client location. Origin of business pains was attributed mainly to inefficiencies in processes pertaining to inventory tracking and quality management. To address these issues, Patni suggested the implementation of Product Configurator along with Baan IV modules pertaining to Lot Control and Quality Management.
