MES and digitalization from start
Millcon is a company that offers conversion of paper and cardboard. Millcon has had a strong expansion in recent years and also sees a bright future. Millcon have survived a long time without a more extensive system support in production but with larger production targets was recognised a need for a system of traceability and monitoring. ÅF has therefore helped Millcon with process knowledge from industry and the adaptation of the ÅF MES platform.
The project was started in mid-2017 and we planned for a short and intense adaptation of ÅF MES platform against Millcons needs. The project was expanded with some functionality for example integrating printers and warehouse processes to further automate the process.
The system was adapted to the needs of Millcons and they got a short take-off to basic platform and important functionality to streamline business processes with example functions for inventory and shipping information.
