New ERP platform integrated with the production plant, for Packstyle

Design and development of an ERP platform to manage manufacturing, specifically for the packaging industry

Correct and efficient production management is essential for a company that wants to maintain high production standards and be competitive on the market. Smart data collection and processing tools, specialized know-how, process organization technologies are therefore essential to increase productivity and efficiency. This is why Packstyle, a young Italian company, part of the Cimpress plc group, dealing with the production of food packaging, has chosen Omnys to develop a vertical ERP platform for the management of its production plant.

Packstyle, the first Digital Pouch Factory in Europe that offers the possibility to customize your packaging, choosing between flat pouches and stand-up doypack pouches for food, with different sizes and finishes, and completely customizable, needed to effectively and efficiently automate its production chain consisting of several phases, for very different orders (often managed at the same time).

Omnys has therefore designed and developer an extremely modular ERP platform, based on AWS (using Lambda Function for the elaboration of some SQS processes), able to control this complex production chain: from the order and print file incoming to the finished product delivery (going through editing the print file, laminating, cutting, etc.). An architecture designed and developed accorind to the customer's needs, such as the possibility to trace the materials used to make the packaging.

Packstyle actually needs to track the raw materials with which the food bags are made. Omnys has therefore created a section within the platform in which the end-customer can track the batches and materials used in production (reels, ink, etc.), allowing, given a certain order, to immediately trace all the raw materials used.

Moreover, in the sight of Industry 4.0 paradigm, Omnys is already developing, within the platform, a component that will allow, in the future, to connect the machinery involved in the several phases of the supply chain with the ERP platform, further automating production and making manufacturing processes even more efficient.
