Transforming Production Oversight at Alutech

Executive Summary

Alutech, a leading steel manufacturing company, faced significant challenges in real-time production monitoring and inventory management. They required a solution that provided real-time data on production levels to ensure optimal stock management. Our integrated solution enabled real-time data transfer from factory machines, providing actionable insights via mobile and web applications. This resulted in streamlined operations, improved inventory accuracy, and enhanced decision-making capabilities.


Alutech is a prominent player in the steel manufacturing industry, known for its high-quality products and innovative production techniques. With two large factories housing 49 machines each, the company has a substantial production capacity. However, maintaining accurate real-time data on production levels across multiple machines and locations posed a significant challenge. This case study explores how our integrated solution helped Alutech overcome these hurdles and achieve operational excellence.

The Problem

Despite its strong market presence, Alutech grappled with several critical challenges:

  1. Lack of Real-Time Monitoring: The company struggled to monitor real-time production data, making it difficult for sales personnel to know current stock levels.
  2. Inefficient Inventory Management: Without up-to-date information, managing inventory and ensuring product availability for sale was cumbersome and prone to errors.
  3. Operational Downtime: Identifying machine failures and maintenance needs was reactive rather than proactive, leading to unexpected downtimes and production losses.

These issues collectively hindered Alutech’s ability to operate efficiently and meet customer demand promptly.

The Solution

To address these challenges, we developed an integrated solution tailored to Alutech’s specific needs. Key features of our solution included:

  1. Real-Time Data Integration: Each machine in the factories was equipped with sensors to transfer data to a central system that reads and interprets the data from the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) system.
  2. Mobile and Web Applications: We developed a mobile app and a web-based application that allowed the operations manager and sales personnel to monitor production levels in real-time from anywhere.
  3. Machine Health Monitoring: The solution also provided real-time insights into the operational status of each machine, indicating whether they were functioning correctly or required maintenance intervention.
  4. User-Friendly Interface: Both applications featured intuitive interfaces, making it easy for users to access and interpret data quickly.

By implementing this comprehensive solution, Alutech could effectively monitor production levels and machine health, leading to improved operational efficiency.


The implementation of our solution yielded impressive results for Alutech:

  1. Enhanced Real-Time Monitoring: The production manager and sales personnel could now view real-time production data, enabling them to make informed decisions about inventory and sales.
  2. Improved Inventory Management: With accurate and up-to-date information, the company could ensure product availability, reducing instances of stockouts or overproduction.
  3. Reduced Downtime: Proactive machine health monitoring allowed for timely maintenance interventions, minimizing unexpected downtimes and maintaining consistent production levels.
  4. Increased Operational Efficiency: The overall efficiency of the production process improved, leading to better resource utilization and higher productivity.
