Jäger implements the GUS-OS Suite
Cologne/Haag, 14th of February 2019
Cheese made from 1.5 million litres of milk a day
Milchwerk Jäger GmbH has opted for the GUS-OS Suite. With the integrated ERP solution from the GUS Group, Germany’s oldest private dairy wants to map its cheese production digitally and further automate it in order to accelerate processes and make them transparent throughout. The GUS-OS Suite replaces several, partly self-developed solutions.
Focus on freshness
The new ERP solution, which is specialized in the process industry, contributes above all to the effective and efficient processing of the fixed quantity of milk delivered every day. Jäger emphasizes the freshness of their products, so that the focus is on fast production and processing of around 1.5 million litres of raw milk delivered daily by around 1,200 suppliers. As a result, Jäger wants to avoid time-consuming interim storage of the raw milk and the cheese made from it and therefore does not provide any extensive storage capacities.
The GUS-OS Suite supports this rapid and efficient production by displaying the following information transparently and in real time: current stocks, production capacity utilization, number and quantity of semi-finished products as a basis for various end products, the existing quantity of packaging in different forms, the number of customer orders currently being processed as well as those still open, and batch tracking. With the help of these key figures, Jäger is able to avoid under-, double- or overproduction.
Milchwerk Jäger initially introduces the ERP core system for 70 simultaneous users and a further ten users logged in via mobile devices. In addition, the dairy will implement the GUS-OS modules Product Pass (process control in the sense of Product Lifecycle Management), Report (reporting), KPI (Key Performance Indicators), Planning (sales, material and capacity requirements planning), MES (Manufacturing Execution System) as well as the GUS-OS Digital Hub for the digital connection of suppliers and partners. In addition, the GUS-OS Suite integrates the existing process control system and high rack at Jäger.
Between two medium-sized companies
Walter Baier, Commercial Manager, Milchwerk Jäger GmbH: “For us, the GUS Group is a partner at eye level, that is to say, we communicate from medium-sized company to medium-sized company. At the same time, the GUS Group is large enough that we can be sure to have an independent solution partner in it in the future as well. Its specialists are also in a position to implement our individual requirements.”
“The food and especially the dairy industry is a strategically important market segment for us”, says Jörg Paul Zimmer, Managing Director of GUS Deutschland GmbH. “We are therefore delighted to have won Milchwerk Jäger as a supplier in this market. The award on the part of Jäger also confirms our approach of being regionally present and having short distances to our customers.
