Chemical manufacturers face increasing pressures from both environmental and government agencies to conform to strict regulations. So it is only natural that this sector requires special ERP solutions specifically developed to meet industry requirements.

In addition to regulatory requirements, the usual increased customer focus and the need to keep pace with ever changing markets means chemical manufacturers need adaptable, robust internal processes from sales to manufacturing and across the entire supply chain. Every day, a company is required to deliver quality and ensure environmental protection and safety, whilst not neglecting to develop the right products, new business processes and intensive marketing.

These often conflicting success criteria are fulfilled by an ERP solution which maps all the chemical industry's business processes.

Microsoft Dynamics + ProLife for the Chemicals Industry

  • Optimisation potentials in a supporting business area

    Production includes many areas beginning with research and development and production of sample loads, carried over to recipes and manufacturing instructions up to graphic production planning and KANBAN. This allows process optimisation and IT control to a particularly important, but also especially challenging task.

    An example from a chemical supplier

    Thus, for example, we have improved the production process at one of our customers in the following areas and thus significantly improved its operative performance: Due to the introduction of the production instructions, bills of materials and work plans are processed and released at a new central position. The attached workflow clearly automates the release process and reduces the processing time. Moreover, rolling production planning was introduced, which also considers historical values and forecasts from customers. Bottlenecks are quickly discovered, set-up and down times reduced and lead time increased due to the graphical representation. Coupled with the creation of customer-specific product labels including symbols for hazardous materials and instruction texts, manual work steps are reduced to a minimum.

    We have implemented the following improvements for our customers with our solutions:
    • Extended workbench and outsourcing, embedded in the production planning process and logistics
    • Flexible batch management for batch split or mixed batches with complete traceability (forward: from Kundenauftrag->Produktion->Rohstoffe - Customer Order -> Production -> Raw Materials - and backward: Rohstofflieferung->Produktion->Kundenaufträge - Raw Material Supply -> Production -> Customer Orders)
    • Pre and post calculation
    • Concentration-dependent ingredients / reagents reduce the manual expense of production planning and raw material procurement enormously; increase in product quality.
    • Subject to data changes due to further development of product and production.

    Our customers rate the solutions from the company YAVEON for one of the most important business areas (production) of their companies and are thus optimally placed for increasing competition and increased cost pressure, and remain competitive, thanks to cost reduction and process acceleration.

  • Quality is our fundamental principle

    Hardly anything influences customer relations more than quality. we therefore look particularly closely at this area and support our customers with a solution that corresponds to the requirements of our customers and their customers, and satisfies all guidelines with respect to compliance. Traditional tests are included in the overall value creation chain, e.g., incoming goods inspection of raw materials, in-process test in the manufacturing order or stability test of new products as well as store articles.

    In this regard, we pursue a clear objective: Quality must be safe and stable and processes transparent. This is what our customers particularly value, especially in times when regulatory requirements increase continuously - the processes must remain manageable.

    Our solution includes the following functionalities for quality assurance in the chemicals industry:

    • Incoming goods inspection of raw materials, first deliveries and sample batches with skip batch procedure
    • In-process control of the production for each manufacturing order or process step
    • Re-Testing of MHD extensions / extension of the durability
    • Batch release via graphical workflows (multi-level) and 4-eye principle
    • Drawing up analysis certificates
    • Product specifications of customers and suppliers including individual quality codes
    • Revision-proof administration of all documents (automatically generated within the process or present externally; scan)
    • Inspection tool administration and periodic testing (e.g., calibration)
    • Qualification check of employees for different test methods or test equipment
    • Extensive CAPA Management for generating, processing or delegating requests and documentation including integration of other documents
    • Process and quality management for secure administration of documents (SOP, manufacturing instructions, test specifications, etc.) of versions and process-related provision of documents for employees on a day-to-day basis
    • Connection to Labour Information Systems (LIMS)
    • Evaluations and codes for the quality sector

    We live quality – we satisfy the quality requirements of our customers internally as well and thus consider ourselves to be at eye-level with our customers of the chemicals industry. Due to our skills in the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries, we are audited and have to publish our product development processes transparently; for this reason we can advise our customers in the quality sector from our personal experiences.

  • We cannot eliminate your administrative effort. But we can reduce it.

    According to market studies, employees use more than 12% of their work time in looking for and managing documents, on average. This means that almost every eighth work minute can only be used administratively and non-productively, and this generally depends on the system. Also, and especially in the area of document management, we thus see an especially large potential for improving work processes on the basis of suitable IT (thus solutions for administering, storing, searching, versioning or sending documents).

    A concrete example: simple and revision-proof storage

    And here is a concrete example of how such an improvement can look: For example, we integrate page lists for storing documents not only in ERP systems, but also in Microsoft Outlook. Your employees can then find the corresponding customers over the structure tree and simply store an e-mail including an attachment by drag 'n' drop in a revision-proof manner. File structures ensure a clean document archive (e.g., offer map, order map, lot map). Along with the comfortable search, your employees can quickly access available documents, where mostly fragments of a lot number often suffice to be able to find files or even e-mail contents.

    Business processes: Automation of the document dispatch

    Our solution offer is complemented with respect to your business processes. Our solutions are also able to automate the dispatch of documents, besides the real-time print of a product specification or a work instruction / SOP in connection with a production order. Thus, your customers always receive current product specifications sent to them at regular intervals, upon the first order of a product, each change in product specifications and at least once a year.

    We call it: up-to-date document management, simple, transparent, automated. It ensures that the administrative effort, although not eliminated, can be significantly reduced.

Our customers know about this circumstance and have accordingly been successfully advised by our experts.

    Optimisations in the Storage & Logistics area often originate .from fields of topics, which firstly have little to do with IT, rather can be assigned much more easily to the area of process advice. Optimising the store structure, integral consideration of the value creation chain or analysis of error points are explained as a result of the process advice of its conversion in the IT consideration via modern business IT.

    Our solution includes:

    • Mobile working in the store and in all the work sites, online and offline.
