Asprova software schedules production of industrial gear (IG) wheels for Niebuhr Gears since 2020. This Danish company manufactures high-quality gear components for industrial machine builders in sectors such as construction machinery, automotive, and ship building, and is also the world’s largest yaw ring manufacturer for the Wind Turbine Generator Industry. Processes for IG manufacturing include sawing, turning, cutting, keying, heat treatment, grinding, and testing.
Prior to implementing Asprova, all scheduling was done manually and re-scheduling was a big issue causing excessive backlog. With Asprova, integrated with MS Dynamics NAV, Niebuhr Gears benefits from precise and optimal sequencing—realizing high process synchronization and eliminating unnecessary wait times and WIP.
