Solution

The Challenge

As a global mining company, we need to design and produce mining equipment to process, convert, and refine raw materials. How to control the production progress of various manufacturers around the world is a great challenge.

  • We have to control the BOM structure to ensure the latest version is released in time for every manufacturer.
  • We have to track and monitor critical components and long-time equipment during the whole project.
  • We needed a rapid reporting system, so project information can be shared with the people who need it, without it was challenging to share information efficiently.

The Solution

JUSTPRO helps Anglo American to implement JUST-EPM solution (Engineering Project Management) to handle their MCC project.

The GA drawing was be converted to BOM by our JUST-EPM system. According to the requirements, JUSTPRO and Anglo American designed illustrations and created the 3D models to help manufacturers easily understand what they should do. Base on the ECC function, it’s enabled us to control and update the last BOM version to the manufacturer as efficiently as possible.

JUSTPRO’s tailored barcode solution was used to manage and track daily inventory operations and send a purchase order to the supplier. Inventory transactions were be recorded precisely where they happen. And all the deals were integrated into JUST-EPM systems for query in time.

During the production, our team provides the onsite inspection. All the issues will record into our tracking system and generated the standard operation procedure for correction and adjustment. The third-party report or document can be integrated into our tracking system. After inspection, the customized reports can be generated automatically.

And all the production information was uploaded to JUST-EPM system. Customers can track their project process performance via the EPM website. With the JUST-EPM website, users can share project timeline, raw-material availabilities, ‘FAT reports’ and shipping information with stakeholders whenever and wherever.
