Viraj has recently commissioned a material tracking system across its plants, which is first of its kind in India. In addition to material tracking, this system also tracks production recording/quality confirmation /invoice generation and dispatch through the same system.
One of the key benefits of the MTS Viraj has seen is the production entries which are done through bar code scanners, not in SAP GUI, so manual entries are eliminated and thus the chances of wrong movement/allocation of material is eliminated. The system also offers better visibility of the inventories amongst all plants leading to better production planning. The quality confirmation is being done through MTS, which ensures that any rejection/rework is clearly identified and is not used anywhere across all plants in the production process.
Confusion between departments is eliminated, as all the details are available online on a real time basis and all departments can see the availability of their material and what stage of production it has reached.
