Hellenic Cables received the gold award at the Business IT Excellence (BITE) Awards 2020. Specifically, Hellenic Cables was distinguished in the first pillar, in the section “Specialized Sector Applications” in the category Processing / Industry with the project “Advanced Production Planning and Scheduling”. This project concerns the development of a system that programs all production orders as they are created at the ERP system (SAP) level, optimizing the final production planning. The programmer can simulate through the tools provided, multiple scenarios, to arrive at an optimal plan which will eventually be distributed to the production lines. The possibility of accessing the plan of the program, to all interested parties, at any time, through their computers, allows the immediate and detailed information required for the smooth execution of the production. All the above contribute, among other things, to the increase of the production volume, to the reduction of the delivery times, to the reduction of the scrap and the stocks of intermediate products but also to the facilitation of the factory operations. Boussias Communications organized the Business IT Excellence (BITE) Awards for the ninth consecutive year, under the auspices of SEPE. The awards ceremony took place on September 23, 2020, at House 124 (Chalandri).
