Heinzen Manufacturing International Case Study by Total ETO ERP

The Company: About Heinzen Manufacturing International

Located in Gilroy, California, Heinzen Manufacturing International (HMI) is a full-service engineering and fabrication company specializing in the design, production, and installation of food processing equipment. HMI draws upon a wide range of depth and experience, from custom-built fruit processing lines to complete heavy construction projects. For over 24 years, Heinzen Manufacturing has been satisfying customers with its commitment to customers, R&D, and the development process to ensure the equipment built for customers is easy to access, inspect, sanitize, maintain and operate cleanly and efficiently.

The Situation: Partial BOM Releases

As a custom design manufacturer, about 95% of Heinzen’s projects are engineered to order or modify designs. Most projects have a 6 to 12-week cycle and require the partial release of BOMs at different stages. Heinzen needed a solution that allowed for these partial BOM releases in order to keep projects moving. They also needed a system and vendor that understood their business process and who would provide exemplary customer service and work with HMI to grow their business.

Originally a Total ETO customer, as Heinzen was expanding management thought a larger enterprise resource processing (ERP) solution was the answer. However, after spending $500,000 on the new system, they realized it could not deal with multiple BOM releases and took far too long to release from the engineering module to Purchasing.
