PSI awarded major contract by Altonaer-Technologie-Holding GmbH

ERP system PSIpenta controls the production processes of three Group companies

Berlin, 22 February 2017 – PSI Automotive & Industry GmbH, a subsidiary of PSI, has been contracted by ATH Altonaer-Technologie-Holding GmbH, Hamburg, to implement the new version 9 of the ERP system PSIpenta for ATH and the Group companies KROENERT, ZAE-AntriebsSysteme and DRYTEC. PSIpenta replaces the old system currently in place.

In addition to PSIpenta/Multisite, a central purchasing department and service, the scope of supply also includes numerous other modules, manufacturing execution system (MES) components, a control centre and the project management extension module PSIprofessional, as well as data warehousing/business intelligence (DWH/BI) and finance.

Following a highly competitive selection process, Altonaer-Technologie-Holding chose the ERP system PSIpenta. Ultimately, it all came down to an in-depth understanding of the typical production requirements of a systems manufacturer and serial producer. In future, these will be optimally combined in a Multisite solution spanning Altonaer-Technologie-Holding’s production facilities to allow the three companies to cooperate more effectively in business and logistics.

PSI was able to impress ATH from the beginning of the selection process by offering a preview of its latest technological advancement: PSIpenta version 9. Due to the PSI Java-based framework, PSIpenta users can configure and combine interfaces with the new and intuitive PSI Click Design. The aim of the new ERP system launch is to increase production process transparency and create shared value for affiliated companies.

Leading Swedish aluminium company Gränges decides for PSI

PSImetals as integrative MES solution for all production processes

Berlin, 3 February 2017 – PSI received an order from Gränges AB in Sweden to implement PSImetals as a production management solution to harmonise their production processes worldwide. Gränges, a global leading aluminium company focused on rolled products for the heat exchanger industry, aims to establish globally integrated production processes based on one common platform.

Today Gränges operates different MES systems in their sites in Sweden, China and in the U.S. which are developed and maintained in-house. To standardise business processes and to reduce administration and maintenance efforts Gränges implements PSImetals as integrative production management solution from Planning to Execution.

First part of the solution will be installed at the finishing area at the Finspång site in Sweden but finally PSImetals will cover all processes of aluminium production: melting and casting, cladding, hot and cold rolling as well as annealing and slitting. The integrated solution comprises the modules Order Dressing, Order and Line Scheduling, Order Combination, as well as Production and Quality Execution. To guarantee seamless integration of all business relevant IT systems, PSImetals will be fully integrated in the ERP system and the automation systems on shop floor. The overall solution for Finspång is expected to be implemented by the end of 2018.


PSI Logistics and Center Connected Industry Realise IoT Applications

PSI software controls research structure at the RWTH Aachen campus

Berlin, 30 January 2017 – PSI Logistics GmbH, a member of the Smart Logistics Cluster at the RWTH Aachen Campus, is cooperating with the Center Connected Industry with the implementation of a demonstrator for applications for the Internet of Things (IoT). The solution will be presented in February at the 15th Hamburg Logistics Conference.

The goal of the cooperation with the cross-sector Community within the Center Connected Industry is “to bring Industry 4.0 to life in logistics”, explains Dr. Giovanni Prestifilippo, Managing Director of PSI Logistics. In the “Smart Parcel” project at the Center, PSI software is supporting a showcase for applications of the Internet of Things under live conditions in the associated “Demonstration Factory”. To accomplish this, modules of the PSItms transport management system communicate IoT beacons. A prototype live system will be presented on the 15th and 16th of February in the framework of the Hamburg Logistics Conference with the focus on bringing Industry 4.0 to life. The data flow starts with decentralised sensor elements that forward the real-time data of transportation goods and means to the PSItms application. The relevant information is provided directly at the location of the action by mobile apps, so as to optimise transportation processes and intra-logistical material flows.
