Finja Prefab's business concept is to be a complete precast frame contractor who are responsible for the entire process and supports the customer all the way from design to assembly. Therefore, the implementation of a digital planning tool is a natural part of their continued development. Finja Prefab is now working almost fully with the IMPACT digital planning tool that provides control of projects throughout the chain.
In their planning process, each project begins with the assembly department setting times for assembly, after which the production and design are planned as efficiently and optimally as possible. When you then get to the execution process, the different schedules are woven together in the planning tool, which contributes to the efficiency that can be optimized when then design, manufacturing, and assembly are to be performed.
The quality increases when you eliminate manual input sources of error. The system uses different colour codes for the elements in the 3D view; for every status through the process; to increase the visual overview. Through the colour codes, you can see which elements are ready in the stockyard, which are cast, and which are planned. For transportation, this means that with the help of colours you can see which elements are to be loaded together. The integration with their transport company also provides benefits as load planning is streamlined in both the short and long term. During transport planning, transports are called from the system and delivery notes are generated automatically.
With IMPACT Go, the mobile application that comes with the tool, you now have the control records digitally instead of in paper form. Any issues or rejections are reported with the app. Each element produced has a unique QR code so that with the help of this and the app you can track the status of the element with detailed real-time information and get better controls and improve the processes.
- “The digitisation of our working methods and the introduction of the IMPACT planning tool gives us project plans, controls, and deviation reports in the same program, results in large time savings. It also gives us structure and order it all our precast projects, both large and small.”, says Kaj Grönvall, CEO of Finja Prefab.
