PT. Suryakemasindo Sejati implements SunFish ERP in order to transform the performance of their core operational processes through automation and integration
January 2008, Jakarta ? DataOn announces that PT. Suryakemasindo Sejati ('Suryakemasindo') is implementating SunFish ERP in order to renew the structure of their business operation through automation and thus make it more transparent and efficient. Engaged in rotogravure printing and flexible packaging since 1993, this step was necessary as the industry has become increasingly competitive over the last years. Still manually keeping track of their raw materials, production and finances, Suryakemasindo felt the need to change the way in which the company manages its multi-staged, networked processes.
The re-organization of the existing planning and control of the entire supply chain management process required a thorough visualization of all workflows integrated in the production process. For efficient planning, all resources and capacities have to be transparent at all times in order to react quickly to the changes or delays that typify the modern production environment. Besides transparency for each cost center, an intact and coherent process flow is the basis for efficient control of the entire process. It must be ensured that stock levels are ideally dimensioned in order to prevent unnecessary capital lock ups.
Having these requirements in mind Suryakemasindo went searching for a cutting edge technology to optimize their enterprise resource planning and production management. Following the recommendation of another customer, the company approached DataOn for an introduction and demonstration of its SunFish ERP solution. The company became convinced that SunFish ERP is the right choice to successfully implement such a far-reaching structural change mainly because of:
» The functional scope the solution provide;
» DataOn?s knowledge and implementation experience;
» The high level of support and consulting from DataOn?s staff to explain software customizations
specific to Suryakemasindo?s business needs already during the review phase.
SunFish ERP will provide Suryakemasindo with global access to information on inventory, sales and purchase orders, distribution, resources used and costs incurred in each production process, and finances simplifying the cooperation and information exchange between all integrated divisions. The solution delivers critical figures, necessary reports and analysis precisely timed, thereby assisting the management in its overall decision-making and resource and capacity planning.
The application will modernize the Suryakemasindo?s printing and packaging operations and support the company in realizing the benefits that are currently most important to them, which are:
» To correctly track the profit and/or loss for each item in production;
» To accurately schedule production and ensure proper capacity planning for each machine in
each production process section;
» To view stock levels real-time and automate re-stocking orders for low stock items;
» For their salespeople to give reliable information to customers regarding the duration of order
» To accurately track the costs of each item every time an item goes into a warehouse;
» To have complete reporting for all stages in the process: production, inventory, sales,
purchases and finances without spending the time previously required to gather all data.
Moreover, SunFish ERP will allow Suryakemasindo to constantly improve its process performance while reducing operational costs, to anticipate and respond to any changes in market conditions or customer behavior through real-time visibility into the statuses along the entire supply chain ? including sales and purchase orders, inventory, resource plans, deliveries, and schedule information. Thus, action regarding sourcing and delivering, increasing or decreasing order quantities or safety stock levels, and redirecting critical inventory can be initiated more dynamically and effectively, taking greater control over costs and enhancing mid and long-term business planning.
