Production Process

Everything happens automatically. Starting with the cutting of the panels directly from rolls of sheet steel, production moves swiftly through to finished components. The possibility of producing a flow of single parts, kits or batches depends on the specific orders.

Production is managed just-in-time and monitored step-by-step by our special MPS (Modula Production System) software, developed in-house.

This software has been created and implemented not just to manage and plan requirements linked to sales orders, but also to provide full control and overview of the progress of each order via an integrated barcode reader system and connected transport systems. MPS communicates with the Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) and Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) systems for the automatic scheduling of work requests, which are sent directly to outside suppliers and to internal production facilities to manage the entire production process.

This interconnection with production systems via robots and software allows us on the one hand to reduce costs and increase productivity, but on the other hand to maintain real-time control over the progress of each order. The designs for each of the components that go into our vertical warehouses are sent directly to the machines involved in the production process.

How we work

Workflow

It all starts with the client. After an initial overview, for each project we set up a dedicated team to analyse the logistical requirements and to advise on the best product and any available options.

Our global reach allows us to offer top-quality consultancy. Modula products are designed and created in-house by our own engineers. Production is completely automated and based on process verticalisation.

Installation is carried out on-site by a team of expert technicians located in various locations nationally and internationally.

Our work does not end there. We provide training, continuous telephone support and immediate technical assistance.

How we work

The Italian plant in Casalgrande is an authentic “automated in-line factory” designed to guarantee rapidity, flexibility and production capacity, from the raw materials delivered to the factory to production of the finished components. The possibility of producing a flow of single parts, kits or batches depends on the specific orders.

The software is implemented to integrate and control the warehouses and goods handling systems.

Interconnection with the production systems by means of robots and software makes it possible to reduce costs while simultaneously boosting productivity. In the production process, drawings of components for the vertical warehouses are transmitted directly to the machines involved in the process and the entire cycle is handled completely automatically.

At Modula, people are employed in organisation, after-sales, software, and client analysis: the production paradigm has changed; almost everything is performed by robots and people are focused on services.

How we work

“In our case, employment levels are rising year on year because human know-how is the focus of all our actions. Our workforce today is made up of a preponderance of highly skilled personnel, trained within the company.”

Franco Stefani, President of Modula
