The Shonan Unitec Corporation used to create a weekly planning document for every production process, based on customer orders and standard throughput times issued by the mainframe computer. The calculation for throughput times did not take machine load into account, however. Even with the planning experts' years of experience, there have been differences in opinion which lead to uncoordinated production process management.
With Asprova, processes are now managed as a whole. Production runs smoothly and efficiently in small-sized batches and there inventory stocks of all sorts have been greatly reduced. Accurate and realistic planning also helps distribute work evenly throughout working days. All of these and many more advantages have made the name 'Asprova' synonymous with production planning at Shonan Unitec Corporation.
