The first phase of implementation was completed almost entirely — 95%. Its implementation greatly facilitated the activities of production operators. In the shops of the automated accounting of manufactured products, determination of its actual weight. It has become possible to control, taking into account technological parameters. Leaders believe that the project will significantly improve the quality of products.
