Lima Corporate, managing the production growth with the APS

Production planning in the medical sector

The Company

LimaCorporate is a global company that manufactures medical devices that offer reconstructive orthopedic and fixation solutions to surgeons who face the challenge of improving the quality of life of their patients.

Based in Italy, Lima is committed to developing innovative products and procedures to enable the individual patient. The Lima product range includes primary revision systems for joints and complete solutions for the ends including fixation.

Orthopedic solutions are based on innovative methods and technologies, such as 3D printing, and are sold globally thanks to the presence in over 40 markets.

 

The Challenge

Before the implementation of CyberPlan we did not have an APS, we had a very rough MRP that supported the management and that did not meet our needs.

In those years the company was starting to grow and so were the needs to structure the processes more, to the point that it had become extremely important to have a tool that simplified the planning of production and that made it using precise and structured data. Thus, in Lima, we realized that it would have been almost impossible to go on without.

From there we started looking for an Advanced Planning and Scheduling software and a selection was launched during which an internal team of 5 people carefully selected and evaluated the various proposals, making use of, for example, practical use in companies. Following this process, the software selected by the team was CyberPlan.

 

The solution

We use CyberPlan for the explosion of needs and therefore for both the generation of purchase and production proposals as well as for the planning of warehouse payment dates. These proposals are forwarded to the purchasing office that transforms the purchase request into a purchase order making sure that the materials arrive within the required time frame. The production proposals are transformed into an internal production order. CyberPlan provides the theoretical payment dates of both production and theoretical orders, ie not yet issued.

 

Results

CyberPlan helped us manage business growth, without this tool it would have been impossible to achieve these results. I wonder how it was possible to work before without the CyberPlan APS. In the last few years we have focused on performance improvement objectives through the optimization and reduction of warehouses and the reduction of the lead time. Surely CyberPlan was one of the tools that helped to achieve these results.

 

Endorsement

CyberPlan helped us manage the business growth, without this tool it would have been impossible to achieve these results. I wonder how it was possible to work before without the CyberPlan APS.
