PHC highlights JPM Industry as a successful case


Adaptability and innovative spirit

Nowadays, the reality of a factory is different from what it was a few years ago. For José Ribeiro, JPM Chief Information Officer, “a modern factory is very different from what it was 15 years ago, i would even say that they are very different since five years ago.” The development of technology has forced the company, over the years, to perceive the evolution of the machines themselves, to be increasingly demanding with resources. Unlike the factories of the past, where machines were manual and just needed to be turned on and off, nowadays the automation component is high, followed in detail by a vast engineering team that incorporates and integrates all the needs of the market: “In industry 4.0, automation and processes are interconnected, which makes our work challenging on the one hand and, on the other, gives us confidence, because we are managing to keep up with the market. We work with the PLC programming and other high-tech equipment, and that fact compels us to follow market trends.”

Process optimization and management control

JPM Industry implemented the Enterprise range in 2006, an application that makes it possible to analyze and streamline information. An option that brought evident added value: “The information from the different areas of the company is concentrated in one place, which greatly facilitates decision making.” In addition, as a flexible and customized solution, PHC CS allowed to adapt the software to the reality of the factory. In 2015, JPM Industry took another technological leap in its strategy and, after a careful market consultation, chose to implement the Manufactor module. Thus was completed the full computerization of the company, including workers’ benches. Here, the operations of the manufacturing works begin and end, in addition to being able to edit the times and quantities. Of the approximately 140 employees, the universe of people who have contact with the software is greater than 100: “It takes time for the processes to be optimized and people can adapt to them. It is essential to ensure the continuous update and maintenance of the entire application by PHC.” Five years after the implementation of Manufactor, the path traced requires time and dedication. For José Ribeiro, this software “allows the employee to have access to more information in less time. This means that is better prepared for the usual performance of tasks.” Flexible and integrated management, based on automated and optimized processes.
