New ERP system operated as a driver for PLM at Metos
Management of product information took a step forward at Metos with combined Autodesk Vault - Sovelia solution
Our production is largely traditional sheet metal manufacturing, which is associated with the control electronics and the connection of the electricity to the entity, says Tero Kähärä, Product Design Manager at Metos Oy Ab
Metos Group manufactures and markets professional kitchen equipment from the brands Metos, Hackman and Wexiödisk. Metos offers comprehensive kitchen solutions, from start to finish. The planning starts from the recipes and kitchen design, after sales take care of maintenance and spare parts.
In the past, the designer made drawings of the parts for production and DXF files for cutting. Now the drawings produced by the designers are created into the necessary file formats automatically. This reduces the risk of errors significantly. When parts are added to the assembly within Inventor, a bill of material is created to Sovelia automatically. The drawings made in the design phase are managed in Autodesk Vault and after the design is completed the product is approved for production in Sovelia. This is to ensure that the BOM’s and items are transferred to the ERP in a controlled way.
