Advancement of production control

Gestamp commissioned agiplan with reducing stocks whilst maintaining the current delivery capacity. By means of a new management system, SAP scheduling profiles and profile sequences, the inventory could be reduced by 34%.

  • Advancement of scheduling and production control at the Bielefeld plant
  • Process analysis and optimisation
  • Development of a new management system
  • Creation of new SAP scheduling profiles and profile sequences

Optimisation options are implemented directly

Gestamp develops and manufactures high-quality body and chassis components for automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers in various locations.

agiplan was awarded the contract for the project "Dispo 2.0". The aim of the project was to advance scheduling and production control at the Bielefeld plant in such a way that stocks could be reduced significantly without negatively impacting on customer deliveries.

First, the existing processes were analysed, SAP settings reviewed and initial optimisation potentials implemented directly. Then the new management system was developed.

Holistic approach ensures sustainability

New SAP scheduling profiles and profile sequences now ensure that both individual items and all components of a BOM can be optimally managed. "It was important for us to identify the causes and not just focus on the symptoms to ensure the project's success in the long term by taking a holistic approach to the value stream," says project manager Peter Röttchen.

Dirk Menzefricke, Gestamp's head of logistics, draws a positive conclusion: "My expectations of the project have been met in full. The reorganisation of our scheduling system advanced our business significantly."
