MES in the production lines of the prefabricated housing industry can also be culturally surprising. At least that’s what Devaki Joshi – a new granIT employee from India – thinks.
Cultural diversity and the associated professional enrichment has long been granIT’s corporate philosophy and needs no special introduction. So: Let’s introduce Devaki Joshi – a programmer from India and new member of the granIT team.
Actually, too few Indian talents find their way to Germany, although they are urgently needed in the IT industry. One (albeit small) example of this is the number of months it took for granIT to fill a long-vacant programming position with a qualified employee like Devaki Joshi.
At the prefabricated house producer Bien-Zenker, the carpentry shop was rebuilt and modernised. The decisive role that MES can play in such a diversified production line and the benefits that result from it for the entire production process are explained by the Head of Strategic Development, Markus Farnung.
Bien-Zenker GmbH, based in Schlüchtern, Hesse, produces and sells prefabricated houses. The company was founded as early as 1906 and is thus one of the most traditional prefabricated house manufacturers in Germany.
The holding company distributes the two product groups “Bien-Zenker Das Haus” (turnkey houses in the medium to upper price segment) and, for rather younger target groups, “Living House” (prefabricated houses).
In 2022, Bien-Zenker GmbH produced around 990 houses in three-shift operation – in the current year 2023, the company aims to break the 990 mark.
The time factor and effort involved in loading are often misjudged. All parts must be present at the right time in the right place in the right unloading sequence – often there is literally a snag “at the wrong end” and a small mistake during loading can lead to considerable problems at the destination.
