Croatian Software in One of Largest International Factories

Lauren Simmonds

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of July, 2019, the Saudi manufacturing plant for aluminium processing, Ma’aden, will apply the Croatian company 8Sigma’s innovative software solution, called “manufacturing execution system” to digitise aluminium production for the automotive industry, the Croatian software company, which is based in Zagreb, proudly said on Thursday.

After a competition/tender which involved several respected and reputable companies, Ma’aden’s management decided that the best in-class offer was precisely the one delivered by the Croatian company 8Sigma, whose experts developed their very own software solution and proved the level of their expertise by working on some of the most demanding projects in the field of the very complex metal industry, reads the statement.

As stated, co-operation with the Saudi Ma’aden Aluminum is part of the plan that includes a several million dollar investment and refers to the complete digitisation of production processes in a rolling mill where aluminium is processed for the automotive industry.

The cooperation agreement between the two companies was signed last week and refers to the first phase of introducing the 8Sigma’s MES solution at the factory facility in Ras Al Khair, which should be completed and commissioned in 2020.

“By implementing MES, both management and the factory’s employees will have a fast and accurate insight into all of the phases of the production processes in real time. MES will enable product tracking from the time the raw material enters the production process until the finished product is ready for delivery to the final customer.

Some of the most important benefits will be surely product quality growth, process optimisation, as well as tracking employee performance comparison and machine efficiency control, “said the statement.
