Case Study Geberit - Jona

Economical quality for all

By implementing a server licence for their m&h measuring software, Geberit has standardised the software of three plants in two countries. This has made the same functions available to all the people involved. The objective was to harmonise manufacturing equipment throughout all plants, make better use of licences within the group and reduce upkeep and maintenance expenses.

Geberit is the European market leader in sanitary technology and widely known for its cisterns and actuator plates. The company headquarters is situated in Rapperswil-Jona on Lake Zurich, where the majority of product development also takes place. Production is made in 15 specialised plants in Europe, Asia and North America. The three most important production facilities have their own tool making departments and have acted independently on work and investment so far.

Striving for a consistent IT infrastructure within the group, the usual dilemma of compability between a variety of systems and versions of software was experienced. It was also noted that the mould making plants in Jona, Langenfeld/Germany and in Pfullendorf were using touch probes and 3D Form Inspect software from m&h. All locations used different modules and software versions and all had their own software maintenance contract.

At Geberit, m&h’s highly praised software and hardware are in day-today use and vital for enhanced quality with smooth running production. Software has now been brought to the same level on all sites. “The objective was to harmonise the software environment in all business units,” says Jürg Huber, the manager of all CAX services at Geberit. “Now we have concluded a uniform, centralised contract with m&h with the facilities working with local clients, but getting the licence from a central server in Rapperswil-Jona.” The new licence system does not cause any time delay...
