Challenge:

When ASARCO approached DTS, the organization was experiencing problems with its ERP system, Mincom MIMS 4.1, specifically issues related to user-friendliness and training. Because of the complexity involved in creating warehouse requisitions using MIMS, many requisitions were being processed as purchase requisitions, causing unnecessary spending and increased overhead for processing purchase orders. These difficulties also resulted in non-catalogued spending and trouble in managing and measuring spending.

Solution:

ASARCO implemented eMESA as a friendly web-based front-end to MIMS for over 700 end users to facilitate and streamline business processes in the following areas:

Following implementation, ASARCO saw the percentage of Warehouse Requisitions increase, and purchase-requisitions decline. The company also saw an increase the number of Work Orders created, and an increased number of Work Orders planned and scheduled.
