With ROB-EX it is easier to re-plan and refine plans in detail “It has become more transparent and we now have an overview of production since we got ROB-EX four years ago,” say the two planners from Vikan, Jacob Nørgaard and René Kälberg, “we are much more in control of the plan, and it is easier to refine it down to the smallest detail.” Vikan manufactures brushes and brooms, as well as equipment for the hygiene industry. The production consists of 10 punching machines and manual production, and has three shifts with 60 employees. Every year, Vikan runs 10 million units through production, and in 2017, the company had 5,000-6,000 production orders. “Some of what we were able to resolve by implementing ROB-EX, was producing the orders in the correct sequence. We have put orders into groups, so we don’t have to make changes all the time. We have AX 2012, and here we cannot see priorities – but now that we have ROB-EX, we can,” says Jacob Nørgaard. René Kälberg adds: “We had some corrections made in connection with the groups we needed. Now we can carry out colour management of the groups and combine them – this makes it very transparent.” “We are participating in the ROB-EX User Day every year to find inspiration and good ideas from the presentations and user cases – and to meet other planners. It is important to be involved so that we can continue to our development. This is also why we participate in the ROB-EX user network,” conclude the two planners.
