BCA GROUP POWERS COMPLEX MANUFACTURING WITH SYSPRO
K3 Business Technology Group (K3) customer BCA Group manufactures a wide range of electrical power systems for major caravan manufacturers. These include systems for Bailey Caravans, Lunar, Coachman, Elddis and Adria. This is a dynamic build-to-order industry, with caravan manufacturers regularly bringing new models to the market and updating and expanding existing product lines. The company uses an integrated SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to help simplify its complex manufacturing processes.
With SYSPRO’s real-time reporting, Wim Batist, owner and MD of BCA Group, gets a live, accurate view of the business. He can instantly see the value of jobs and profit margins, forward booked orders, component stock levels and so on, giving him the ability to react quickly to current and future demands. This also helps dealing with short turnaround times for orders and ensuring the company has adequate raw materials for completing work to schedule.
“We have to maintain this level of investment because of the ever-changing nature of the business. Our customers release new caravans regularly and existing models are being redesigned continually to meet the needs of discerning caravanners”
An evolving contract electronics manufacturer has reduced the time it takes to create Bills Of Materials from 10 days to just one as part of a major transformation of its business model, made possible by its investment in an advanced SYSPRO.
