AGCO, a leading global manufacturer of agricultural equipment, has implemented Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA Apriso solution as part of a paperless manufacturing initiative, supporting their transition from a Push to a Pull based production strategy, achieving significant performance improvement at their Hesston site, their largest manufacturing facility in North America.

As validation of AGCO’s performance improvement, the manufacturer has subsequently been recognised by the Manufacturing Leadership Council as an award-winning leader in engineering and production technology leadership.

 Expanding upon improved throughput capacity achieved at their Fendt plant located near Munich, Germany, AGCO Hesston has implemented an Apriso Manufacturing Execution System (MES) across its fabrication, receiving, warehouse, and sub-and final-assembly areas.

Better visibility into material flows, combined with ready access to manufacturing intelligence, has ensured the right inventory is delivered to the right location at the right time, via a “Smart Pull” trigger.

Operational improvements as a consequence of the change in strategy have included a 40 percent reduction in inventory, a 400 percent improvement in Right First Time metrics and nearly a third improvement in terms of labour efficiency.

 “We did a value assessment early on that helped us to identify those key areas of opportunity where the Apriso product could make a significant positive impact by helping us transform our manufacturing operations from a ‘push’ to a ‘pull’ environment,” said Darin Schmidt, Advanced Project Manager, AGCO. “Our Apriso solution has opened new doors for continuous improvement, based on the intelligence that is now more readily available.”
