(Process Manager: Production Progress Manager)

This process is carried out completely manually by the production planning staff. Every end of the day, all production notes regarding the working day are manually collected and checked, and then (manually) inserted into the CBIS. It is interesting to notice that there are a number of terminals installed in key positions of a production line, but they are neither connected to the company network nor even used by LSB staff.

The choice of manually managing this process is quite unusual for a company of this size. Besides the evident inefficiency due to the time spent by workers, another consequence is the late update of information regarding the inventory of semi-manufactured products. Thus, the person in charge of managing this stock can not access real time availability of components, but only inventory information regarding the day before.
