Client feedback

S23M Managing Partner Jorn Bettin introduced MODA + MODE techniques in combination with LANSA CASE tools in the manufacturing sector in Europe.

We produce over 300,000 tonnes of ready-mix a year in Germany. With that volume, even a low error percentage still means a lot of mistakes. Now we have almost zero errors. We have eliminated almost all errors by moving data entry to the warehouse floor and scanning the goods. The barcode tags provide better tracing of the pallets and better shipping accuracy. Our inventory system is now real-time and up-to-date.

REHAU developed ALN, a LANSA ERP system, deployed on 21 iSeries machines in 23 languages and used by staff at 170 locations worldwide. To give some indication of the system's size, ALN contains 1,500 files [database tables], 18,000 fields and 9,500 programs. The team that develops and maintains the system consists of six LANSA developers and one trainee. Those numbers should give you an indication of the productivity of our team and LANSA.
