Automation through HiFlow has increased our production capacity without the need to hire new employees

Optimizing Production Workflow

Granpak’s goal, according to president Mariusz Korczak, is to be more than just a manufacturer, but a partner and advisor to its customers. To this end, Granpak is dedicated to investing in new technology, and HiFlow, with its tech innovations, fits perfectly into this strategy. After implementing HiFlow, Granpak optimizes production scheduling with direct access to technological documentation on each job.
When a quote becomes a job, HiFlow’s job production workflow diagram is instantly created and allows planning and scheduling to see all parameters of the job. gathered in one place. It facilitates the verification of orders and helps to catch technological errors and mistakes in the job specifications.

HiFlow gathers important information for reporting on individual clients. Postproduction calculations are compared with actual execution, so it is possible to assess the profitability of clients. Additionally, Granpak’s management team can decide about changes in the estimate for future orders, or to determine the clients where profitability is highest.

The number of errors in our company has certainly decreased. By automating processes, defining the various work parameters in
the system, we have made significant progress in this respect.

Hiflow does the work of gathering deep data that is collected at the machine level, as well as inputs from the shop floor. This allows Granpak to analyze processes before and after production, at any time. Error and downtime reports indicate points where changes or improvements are needed. Management can analyze performance of machines, as well as individually assess operators.
