GP Progetti is continuously evolving in the field of tools for industrial management. The proposed software packages are designed to improve the productive efficiency of companies and are able to meet the needs of different sectors. GP Progetti’s solutions are able to follow the analysis phases, customer and supplier order inventory coverage, supply and more. The centralized management of production flows is the basis of a process that offers quality products or services: this is why it should involve all professionals whose priority is the streamlining of production phases, the limitation of various wastes and the general improvement of all planning stages. Thanks to the workflow management systems it is useful for keeping track of workload, all documents and all data; a correct methodology for implementing the tools for industrial management can be summarized in five main steps:
- Identify the process to be analyzed
- Define input and output exchanged between the protagonists of the process
- Define the activities and procedures that control the progress
- Define expectations
- Define the responsibilities of the process
The production scheduler: planning methods
Thanks to the production scheduler it is possible to manage all company resources whether they are workbenches, operators or external resources. GP Progetti has created ten scheduling software packages and three data collection modules: they are completely customizable data collection and production monitoring programs that become a real monitor for real time planning supervision.

“The development of solutions addressing a variety of client needs has resulted in a wealth of skills and expertise acquired on the field and available to be invested with the aim of optimising your company’s production”
For a company supplying thermal treatments, significant advantages may be had by introducing the eNX suite. A client recently contacted GP Progetti to request software designed to manage thermal treatments that was able to oversee furnace charge planning and to survey produced charges, with detailed data on processed pieces. GP Progetti consultants suggested the installation of eSphere + eFlexiMES, two software programs capable of planning production hence optimising the work process.
GP Progetti provides flexible solutions for advanced production management
How do eSphere and eFlexiMES streamline production management?
Below are the advantages achieved by the client company after installing the software recommended by GP Progetti.
- Real time production control (“I know what is happening in the department from the office desk”);
- Finite capacity planning of furnace charges;
- Control of production in real time;
- Production progress directly on the charge order;
- Filing production progress sheets, i.e. field data such as: quantities, times, downtimes and waste;
- Search and display of field data.
Thanks to the technological implementation, Gp Progetti’s client has eliminated the risk of losing precious data during processing, thus allowing the company to optimise management by controlling production in real time.
