The first phase covered one year: 2005 / 2006. Two teams were created, one for the WMS, the other for the ERP.
As for timing, StockSystem and the ERP had two different schedules. At the beginning the idea was to carry out both the implementations at the same time, but StockSystem project was ready after only 6 months analysis, and the definition of the new platform structure on SG400®w4 was quite challenging.
«II led StockSystem’s team– says Sergio Capaldo – while for the ERP I was the general project supervisor. The project started with the detection of an internal figure with great warehouse processes knowledge, ease in providing information, ability in using PCs,decision-making ability and ability in encouraging participation. We had a hectic schedule during the month preceeding the go-live. Tests to check any single function were performed on an updated database. The go-live was on January, 14 - 2006, so we’re at full capacity since 3 years.The whole system continues to be enhanced with several innovative functionalities run on the field.»
