Tyneside Safety Glass Gets Clear View Of Operations With New ERP

Tyneside Safety Glass says it has seen major productivity and efficiency boosts across its three production sites, thanks to a Syspro ERP system, a £5 million investment in new machinery and lean manufacturing and Kaizen initiatives.

Syspro went live in August 2006 and in just over one year, the system has made huge differences – also including a 25% reduction in stock holding, according to Mike Matson, finance director at Tyneside Safety Glass.

“We now hold 25% less stock and we have less work in progress. We have also boosted efficiency levels across the board. The system delivers visibility between sales orders and manufacturing, and allows us to analyse costs comprehensively. This would not be possible without the real time management information that Syspro delivers.” he says.

Part of that is because each of the company’s sites is linked using a VPN (virtual private network), enabling real time data communications and accurate information throughout for the management team, he explains.

“We have seen the integration of the whole business across our three production sites, gained visibility of real time management information and have achieved significant efficiency and control improvements thanks to SYSPRO,” says Matson.

So far the company has implemented Bill of Materials, Inventory, Work in Progress, Purchasing, Sales Order, Financial and Payroll modules. The current phase involves implementing Shopfloor Data Capture, using barcode scanning to allow full traceability of products right back to raw materials.
