Management of incoming and outgoing flows from our workshops.
The supply chain corresponds to the management of the incoming and outgoing streams from our workshops.
This division is split into three parts: precious metal supply/scheduling and shipping.
This entity is supervised by our manager, whose mission is to organise, plan and monitor production in order to achieve predefined objectives. A large part of their work is also dedicated to supporting the teams and continuously improving the monitoring of production processes.
Enterprise Resource Planning
ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a computerised production and logistics management tool essential to the smooth running of our operations. In short, this software package allows us to supervise all the operational processes of our workshops while incorporating several managerial functions.
After many years of studying and testing its effectiveness, our team is now able to transpose each of our actions into the computer system.
Traceability and transparency
Making information accessible
At Ateliers Pichard-Balme we want to use electronic data processing for each of our actions in order to ensure traceability and transparency. We have good knowledge of our flows. This allows us to improve interactions between the various workshops and to promote team coordination. For example, when a new employee arrives at our workshops, they have access to our database. They can therefore quickly analyse each of the operations in progress. The advantage of access to the ERP is that it clarifies the current situation in the workshops in order to facilitate relevant decision-making.
