Capacity and quality limitations demanded a revamped supply chain
New product categories with new requirements on supply chain functionality
NorgesGruppen choose to implement the IMI Supply Chain suite with its modules for order and warehouse management as the core engine, and with a phased implementation approach.
Better delivery quality and lower cost per distributed unit
Lower inventory levels through rational coordination of supply and demand
Integrated and automated business processes with suppliers, customers and stores
Support for business expansion with new product categories and doubled transaction volumes since production start
Extreme stability and performance
We have seen a 10% improvement in efficiency since Factory MES was installed. We planned to achieve return on investment on this project in 12 months, but we will do so in only 9 months. One shift in particular, working with Factory MES, has delivered record output for six consecutive months.
