“Meopta’s production is characteristic with wide product range and enormous number of minor orders with high complexity of most of the products. The issue of planning of so complicated discrete production has been a point intensely addressed by us for several years. Although we have achieved significant progress in this area enabled by an upgrade of the existing ERP system, we arrived at a conclusion that we are barred by limitations of mainly technological nature (MRPII concept) as well as organizational and process nature. Since today’s age calls for progressive approach to the art of production management and planning we decided to implement a project which would move us far ahead of our competitors. The project will be implemented with a partner which deals with the planning and scheduling as its principal specialization and can boast with provable achievements clearly showing its capability to help us to overcome all limitations. It is LOGIS that is deemed by us to be such a partner. Its offer contains all attributes demanded by us.
