With 90 branches around the world, the Swedish company Systemair is one of the global market leaders in ventilation and air conditioning technology. After successfully implementing Infor M3 as its business software, the company also wanted a specialized solution for monitoring all production processes and to ensure optimal reporting. BE-terna was brought on board as a partner for the project, and the decision was made to create a smart app using H5 SDK. 

Big dreams, smart app

From the start of the project it was clear that the requirements that Systemair had to production process monitoring and reporting, would not be solvable with out-of-the-box configurations and adjustments. Systemair has 90 locations in 54 countries, featuring various languages and specific process steps that all needs to be synchronized and retrievable in M3. This presented the team with complex challenges that needed to be handled. As a consequence, the application went through many stages of evaluation and adjustments before it was implemented at the Boxberg-Windischbuch as a pilot project. 

Jürgen Hernadi, CIO at Systemair, comments on the genesis of the idea of such an application and its first successful implementations:

With the assistance of BE-terna, a dream was transformed into reality. When the idea for the application was conceived one night, the complexity of the project was evident from the outset. Our requirements were highly specific and could not be satisfied by a standard application. However, thanks to the ease of language customization, the 40-page requirements catalogue was transformed into production monitoring software that can be implemented across any of our global sites. 

Perfect interaction between the Application and Infor M3 

The application is built on platform called H5 SDK. This utilizes HTML5 and is an open-source collection of design assets and components that lets you align the user interface with that of H5. In addition to this, the following client-specific requests, among others, were considered during the development of the app: 
  • Expansion of language options for more than 20 production sites
  • Holistic documentation and reporting of the work steps in the production groups
  • Synchronization of the Smart App with Infor M3
  • Customizable process automation
  • Flexible, compatible interface for different end devices
  • Automated background processes for creating workflows
  • Reporting of complete departments as well as individual production groups
The application, which was initiated as a project for the German production site, is now being rolled out to other international production sites. 

Jürgen Hernadi further elaborates on the implementation of the production monitoring app: 

We are thoroughly satisfied with the application. The journey from the initial idea to the finished product was challenging. However, we are pleased that we decided to partner with BE-terna and that all of our ideas were successfully incorporated into the solution. It is perfectly suited to meet our production requirements.
