Pyroll Contract Converting provides carton board, paper sheeting and rewindling services, and handles over 500 000 tons of paper and paperboard annually. Etteplan MORE has taken a grip on the maintenance and further development of the manufacturing execution system (MES) in Finland and Poland. Pyroll has used the system for a long time, and it’s a critical factory system that needs to function 24/7.
Maintenance and further development include for example carrying out change requests made by customers and partners. The electronic mail of the system integrates in the partners’ SAP and factory systems and takes care of the two-way transfer of the order information.
The system is used in each of the phases of Pyroll’s converting process, from the production and logistics planning and different stages of production to the inventory control.
Pyroll’s Project Manager Petri Kuitunen tells about the cooperation:
“The functionality of the manufacturing execution system plays a significant role to us. Any problems with the systems always lead to the disruption of production, which in the worst case delays the deliveries to customers. At this point a capable and sufficiently fast system support enables the restarting of the production with the smallest losses possible in. Etteplan MORE has overcome this challenge very well and there haven’t been any longer disruptions due to the manufacturing execution system. Various changes and development ideas from the partners have been carried out quickly in a way that has satisfied the constantly growing demands."
"In the development Etteplan MORE has given ready for use solutions to our wishes and needs for change. In this way it has been possible to continuously develop the system to be more user-friendly and it has helped to make our internal operations more effective.”
In the foreseeable future we will concentrate on the development of the system as a whole by making a good use of Etteplan MORE’s know-how on service design. Etteplan MORE is in charge of developing the current manufacturing execution system according to the one-stop-shop principle.
