Berlin, November 10, 2021 - PSI Polska Sp. z o.o. has been commissioned by K-FLEX POLSKA to implement the PSIasm (Advanced Planning and Monitoring) platform. This enables the optimized planning and control of the production processes at the expanded production plant in Wielenin-Kolonia in Poland.

K-FLEX POLSKA is a manufacturer of flexible thermal and acoustic insulation products and part of the international K-FLEX Group. After the latest expansion, the production plant in Wielenin-Kolonia covers an area of more than 50,000 square meters. Due to the dynamic growth, the existing systems could no longer meet the increasing demands for effective planning and control of production processes.

Therefore, K-FLEX decided to use the PSIasm platform. As part of this, the APS module supports the planning of orders and work processes based on the current status and actual production capacities. The complementary MES module ensures continuous monitoring of the production efficiency, e.g. of KPIs (Key Performance Indicator) such as OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) and OLE (Overall Labor Effectiveness).

"As we operate globally, we were looking for a solution that could also be used in all our plants. PSIasm offers functionalities that meet our current and future requirements. Plus, PSI also supports the roll-out of the system from the Polish plant to the other K-FLEX Group sites. With PSIasm, we can offer our customers even more benefits through more efficient production," emphasizes Bartłomiej Gröbner, Managing Directorat K-FLEX POLSKA.

Due to the chosen agile implementation method, which starts with the most important standard functions of PSIasm, project costs can be optimized and the system can be implemented comparably twice as fast.

The PSI Group develops its own software products for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy grids, energy trading, public transport) and industry (metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). The industry-specific products, which are built from standard components, are sold both directly and via the multi-cloud PSI App Store and can also be customized by customers and partners themselves. PSI was founded in 1969 and employs nearly 2,200 people worldwide.
