ULTIMATE DEMANDS, ULTIMATE SYSTEMS
Fronius International stands for passion for new technologies, intensive research and revolutionary solutions. The company was set up in 1945 as a small-scale business for welding power sources and battery chargers, and today it is constantly raising the bar with unique products for monitoring and controlling the power for welding technology, photovoltaics and battery charging technology. This global leader in innovation and technology is represented on four continents with 3,800 employees in 28 subsidiaries. Innovation is part of the corporate culture at Fronius and the engine of the company’s success. The aim is to continue to develop revolutionary technologies and exceptional products in the Welding Technology, Photovoltaics and Battery-charging Technology Business Units. In terms of workforce management, the company relies on ATOSS at its central production and logistics facility in Sattledt in Upper Austria.
Battery-charging systems, welding systems and solar inverters of the highest quality are manufactured here. To enable it to align its production with the market and the competitive situation, Fronius relies on efficient processes, maximum flexibility and dynamic shift planning. Shift models are determined on the basis of information from the production planning system, and rule-based duty plans generated at the touch of a button. As well as the necessary qualifications, these plans also incorporate individual requests and requirements of currently around 500 production employees, approx. 800 additional employees are soon to follow. Fronius works systematically and consequently to optimize its shift models and planning processes. After all, the pace of the markets is demanding a high degree of automation and flexibility along the entire value chain. Production management is convinced that personnel processes deserve the same treatment. This innovative company sees substantial long-term optimization potential – also at other production plants. For example, the introduction of the ATOSS solution for around 500 employees in the Czech Republic is currently being discussed.
