Two industry leaders work together to streamline operations across European production facilities

Kraków, Poland, June 6, 2024

The comprehensive manufacturing operations management (MOM) system deployment will cover key functional areas including supply chain management, production, quality, and inventory, ultimately standardizing and harmonizing manufacturing operations across Tokai COBEX’s European plants. The project aims to implement a manufacturing execution system (MES) and Warehouse Management System (WMS) to provide a single source of truth, enabling real-time control, effective management, and full traceability of production processes. The implementation starts by integrating with existing systems such as SAP, SCADA, and LIMS, with plans for future integration with maintenance systems.

Tokai COBEX’s thorough decision-making process, combined with Andea’s proven track record in MOM implementations, are set to drive successful rollouts. Andea’s unparalleled knowledge of DELMIA solutions, unmatched experience in working with global enterprises, and application of Agile methodologies will drive the project to meet Tokai COBEX’s specific operational and business objectives.

Andea’s proven track record and expertise in MOM implementations make them the perfect fit for our ambitious project to standardize and enhance our manufacturing processes. We have full confidence that this partnership will be a resounding success, bringing significant improvements in efficiency, traceability, and operational transparency across our production plants. We look forward to achieving great milestones together.
