brixxbox Use Case: Enterprise

The Brixxbox use cases are generally divided into three areas, depending on the requirement level.

clear customer specification for our partner GEBRA-IT GmbH:

Increased productivity and more efficient picking process

 

ERP systems, when used correctly, can help make business processes leaner and more efficient.
The Central Meat Processing Plant at NATO Airbase in Ramstein processes and ships meat products to more than 270 buying centers in the Europe-Arabia-Africa economic region to supply U.S. soldiers, embassy and consulate staff and their families. It belongs to the Defense Commissary Agency and is therefore part of the U.S. government. Accordingly, the requirements were high when the search for a suitable ERP solution began in 2017.

The Brixxbox Solutions Partner GEBRA-IT GmbH offered an individual all-round concept and used the toolbox brixxbox to map the comprehensive requirements of the meat plant.

What needed to be solved?

Requirements for the ERP system

In addition to the complete coverage of all company processes without unnecessary additional programming, it was particularly important to the decision-makers that the new solution be easy and flexible to adapt in order to be optimally prepared for the future challenges in times of digitalization and Industry 4.0.

A particular challenge was also the bi-directional integration of the fully automatic BIZERBA weighing and labeling machines for price labeling and the connection to the BIZERBA industrial scales.

So the company was looking for a software solution that, on the one hand, was capable of meeting the complex requirements of the meat plant and, on the other hand, was easy to use in the application itself.

First successes at the meat plant

More efficient operations, high employee acceptance

 

The brixxbox solution has now been in use since May 2019. The brixxbox is based on the principle of "configuring instead of programming" and, thanks to a unique building block system, is able to completely map company processes "brick by brick" without unnecessary additional programming. Only the building blocks that are really needed are used. "Functional corpses" are thus a thing of the past. User acceptance is also an important key factor for the success of the brixxbox: Users can actively contribute their wishes and requirements during the configuration phase. The employees in the meat plant enjoy working with the system because it adapts to their requirements - not the other way around. Positive side effect: the processes now run much more efficiently.

 

The results in detail

  • Management accesses evaluations directly, where previously documents had to be processed, checked and distributed by mail/printout.
  • Insular systems, especially manually maintained Excel lists were integrated into the system.
  • High acceptance through active involvement of operators in the detailed development by including wishes / ideas
  • Integration of department managers and foremen in the use of the system
  • Substitution arrangements easier as system is almost self-explanatory after short introduction
  • Picking process much more performant and efficient than before
