Case Study 4 - Production Tacking
Wolf Safety Lamp Company has been manufacturing ultimate safety lighting equipment since 1880s.
Having used Sage 200 ERP software for many years, Wolf wanted to make the most of their software and identified a need to start track shop floor production.
Peter O’Connell, Wolf’s Finance Director, talks about working with their Sage Partner, Paradise Computing, to turn a suite of problem solving ideas into a bespoke piece of software development, a web based application with an SQL Database, to record time logging activities against Sage 200 BOM operations.
During the production process, Wolf knows how many steps each item takes to construct and how long it takes for each component part to be assembled. The new touch screen software contains several neat features and utilises Wolf and Paradise’s combined smart ideas to take an assembler through each stage of the operation.
The development integrates with Sage 200 without changing Sage itself, meaning Wolf own the application outright, with the benefit of no ongoing license fee. Taking this into account, Peter is confident that the project will pay for itself in just two years – and bring benefits for many years thereafter.
