Broner Metals Solutions, worldwide specialist provider of integrated MES, supply chain and scheduling solutions for metals announces its MES and Scheduling modules have been put in production at the Teesside steel operations of Sahaviriya Steel Industries UK (SSI UK).
The new solution replaces SSI's original in-house developed system. Broner's MES and Caster Scheduling functionality is now fully integrated with SAP, providing improved scheduling and reporting mechanisms across the plant.
Broner has developed and implemented interfaces between their MES and scheduling solutions allowing SSI to receive production and quality information as the slabs are cast in real-time. This allows the planners at Teesside to re-route and re-schedule giving them greater control over their manufacturing orders and specifications.
The objective of the project was to deliver modern, scalable solutions that could be expended to meet future SSI UK and international requirements. Stephen Duncan, IT Development Manager of SSI said, "I am very pleased with the delivery of the project and I am looking forward to SSI achieving valuable business benefits from Broner's solution".
Broner's CEO David Mushin said, "We expect SSI Teesside to receive significant productivity and cost reduction benefits and I look forward to maintaining a strong, valued business relationship with them".
