High Duty PlasticsMORE MX enabled High Duty Plastics to fully optimise their manufacturing operations.
High Duty Plastics has reduced its planning and dispatch times by more than a third. Integrating MORE MX – manufacturing, scheduling, and capacity planning software with MYOB Exo streamlined and automated their manufacturing workflows.
Who are High Duty Plastics?
High Duty Plastics (HDP) is a long-established Kiwi-owned company with a reputation for designing, developing, producing, and delivering progressive and innovative solutions. Their work ranges from one-off projects to high-volume production. HDP has one of the most advanced workshops in the country with a raft of modern equipment, including CNC lathes, CNC machining centres, CNC routers, 3-D printers, robotic welders, and laser cutting/engraving machines. They service many industries, including transport, forestry, dairy, and hydropower. High Duty Plastics is a family-owned business that strives for customer satisfaction and short lead times.
What catalysed the switch to MORE MX?
High Duty Plastics had previously struggled with maintaining a comprehensive view of their data, meaning they were left spending more time tracking down answers and less time taking action. They needed software that could store all the information in an accessible, user-friendly format and provide the customisation that the production company needed.
What changes followed the decision?
High Duty Plastics now uses MORE MX integrated with MYOB Exo to plan all production in one central place. With every organisation member going to one place for their information, they immediately saw efficiency improvements, from the start of the order to dispatch. The central system, MORE MX, has provided accurate forecasts and job times, letting them get ahead and plan for the future.
How are they now?
High Duty Plastics has reaped the benefits of integrating MORE MX. They no longer struggle with their previous system’s uncertainty and lack of visibility. It has provided a central storage system for all the information any team member in the organisation might need for any job on the floor. Improvements in planning and dispatching processes have alleviated time-consuming manual tasks. Benefits are not only seen by team members but in measurable results. MORE MX has led to a 35-40% time-saving increase from order to dispatch. As a result of the MORE MX integration with MYOB Exo Business, High Duty Plastics can provide their services to more customers increasing their revenue potential.
