Gebrüder Dorfner GmbH & Co. KG: Optimisation through inter-company production planning

2 min read Jun 08, 2018

BE-terna helped the Dorfner Group successfully implement an international ERP project based on Microsoft Dynamics AX. Due to the increasing international status of the corporate group, Dorfner commissioned  in autumn 2014 BE-terna with the replacement of its existing ERP system with Microsoft Dynamics AX. At the start of 2016, all subsidiaries of the Dorfner Group in Germany, Austria, Poland, Spain, and Dubai successfully went live with Dynamics AX for 170 users.

Optimisation through inter-company production planning

Dynamics AX has enabled more transparency in all processes across the entire group, e.g. using the inter-company production planning feature. All production steps are now steered, managed, and monitored more efficiently with Dynamics AX. 

The coordination effort between the locations has reduced considerably – we can now react to mistakes more quickly and initiate countermeasures ahead of time.
