Digitalization: SAP Upgrade for In-House Maintenance Workshop in Ostroda, Poland
Despite the challenges 2020 presented to our workshop staff, the switch to a new ERP system went without interruption to daily work. The project team worked closely together (but apart), as this project was carried out 100% virtually, following an agile project management approach. The state-of-the-art SAP ERP system allows for feature parity. GRE's workshop staff has cleaned obsolete data and streamlined processes that support various departments. Most importantly, with this new platform, the GRE project team has laid the groundwork to further enhance and automate workshop processes, such as mobile solutions for stock, production settlement with scanners or planning and controlling of production.
