You want to control the whole production stage in real time? You want to optimise occupancy in systems and the need for personnel? You want to have more reliable deadlines and well-balanced warehouses? You want to quickly assess the validity of the new production process?
Here is how Information Technology by GP Progetti helps industrial companies, by making smart systems that improve their production capacity.
Most issues considered by production managers are problems many have been aware of for years. The goal of industrial companies is to improve production capacity without affecting costs, ensuring deadlines are met and manufacturing and technical constraints are complied with.
This immediately seems like a rather complex issue, especially when the number of variables increases and the available time to find a solution quickly becomes non-negotiable.
Logistics and industrial processes require the use of high performance production optimisation procedures, and, therefore, quick and flexible algorithms are needed. Traditional techniques are no longer working due to the vast number of non-optimal solutions available. As a result, one needs to resort to the high-tech optimisation techniques designed by GP Progetti, which not only enhance the production process and reduce costs, but also enable you to assess costs and risks associated with alternative scenarios.
Optimisation of processes and production
The latest-generation software tools specialise in scheduling and real-time simulations of production. They are used to optimise, manage and simulate the entire production management stage and quickly improve performance.
They are integrated in the manufacturing process as automatic planners and support the decisions of the production manager.
Namely, they are used to increase production, managing routine, unscheduled or unforeseen events in real time, as in the case of new orders, downtime, unscheduled maintenance, failures, sick leave and other forms of leave, holidays, etc., as well as simulating different production scenarios to design sound and efficient production plans.
Is it possible to optimise the resources available?
MOST DEFINITELY, all thanks to the solutions by GP Progetti
An optimisation system identifies the best production process for a set of orders, taking into account the limitations of production (systems, personnel, materials, equipment) and the deadlines for delivery to the end customer.
Production management software automatically minimises the times for setting up the equipment, tooling and cleaning, thereby reducing “idle time” and increasing the production capacity of the machinery.
Optimal use of new technologies, open information systems and user-friendly graphical interfaces mean you can manage the information of different departments and sources in an integrated manner. The result is better organisation of the resources available as well as lower costs and faster production.

The software programs designed by GP Progetti deliver guaranteed results to streamline production in various sectors.
“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.
