  • ASU (Automatic Specifications Use)

For a true APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) to ensure customer satisfaction and integration of the RI Plant Preference Program we developed ASU (Automatic Specifications Use).

ASU is an product data management (PDM) and product lifecycle management (PLM) system customized for the manufacturing of glass containers; using the Enterprise Resource Planning and widely accepted market specific software packages. Design specifications and product data are automatically collected, processed and distributed throughout the enterprise ensuring global accessibility between subsidiaries using increasingly standardized processes and procedures.

Benefits in processes

  • Higher speed and precision to elaborate product and raw material Design Drawings and 3D-Models.
  • Higher speed and precision to distribute product data to all areas of the enterprise.
  • Broader coverage, higher speed and precision to evaluate assemblies between components at design stage.
  • Higher speed and precision to elaborate manufacturing routes and production schedule.
  • Higher speed and precision to elaborate CNC, CMM, Digital Probing programs.
  • Purchasing as per MRP (Materials Requirement Planning).
  • Higher speed and precision to elaborate documents. i.e. Setup Sheets, CDP (Control During Process) forms, CTQ (Critical To Quality) forms, SPC (Statistical Process Control) forms.
  • Distribution of Design Drawings and Quality Certificates to customers.
  • Product Lifecycle Database as a valuable commodity.
