08/20/2020. – during 6 months of project implementation, we realized all 10 activities planned in this 6 month period. In addition to project visibility activities (publications in digital and print media, poster and labels), we purchased computers with all components and operating system for storage and control, server memory, innovative 3D modeling program SolidWorks Premium 2020 and document management program SolidWorks PDM Professional CAD Editor 2020.
11/22/2020. – after 9 months of project implementation, we have realized 11 activities out of a total of 16 planned activities. In the third quarter, we acquired and implemented SolidWorks Professional 2020, a 3D modeling program that includes a database of standard mechanical parts and assemblies. This activity also included a program of testing and training employees in the process of upgrading the 3D modeling program, and ultimately provided us with quality construction and design of products, tools and machines.
02/22/2021. – after 12 months of project implementation, we have realized 13 activities out of a total of 16 planned activities. In the fourth quarter, we acquired and implemented the WMS information subsystem with a bar code that uses smart devices and bar code readers to automate the receipt, storage, manipulation, reservation and shipment of warehousing items, inventory, traceability of production processes and analysis of activities and reporting.
We also procured and implemented for the warehouse a program for the production of labels for marking products, raw materials, consumables, tools and spare parts and tool steels. By implementing this program, the company has enabled the digital transformation of the entire labeling process, from design to label printing. The consequence of the implementation is more fluid and agile operations that enable the company to respond more quickly to changes in market conditions and customer demands.
The project was co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development fund.
