TietoEnator implements quality management system to UPM Rauma mill


9 January 2006, TietoEnator has implemented a new quality management system to UPM Rauma Mill. The delivery is based on TietoEnator Integrated Paper Solution (TIPS) covering production process information and quality management.

The old quality system was renewed with a new, product-based system using up-to-date technology and functionality. The new system works with the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and is also connected to UPM’s sales systems. It enables improved mill operations in terms of system usability and data reliability throughout the mill.

By implementing TIPS products, UPM Rauma can exploit the benefits of system harmonisation such as reduced maintenance costs and unified mill management processes. In 2002, TietoEnator was chosen as a corporate partner for UPM in the MES area.

Pertti Asunmaa, Vice President and General Manager of UPM Rauma Mill, is very pleased with the results of the project. “I feel that this was one of the best IT projects at Rauma Mill. The project management was excellent in terms of timing, technical implementation and usability ”, says Pertti Asunmaa.

“The new quality management system was put in use in multiple phases. We started to collect process information in the summer and wanted to make this data available as soon as possible. By the time of the actual start-up, all we needed to do was verify that everything works as it should work”, explains Antti Pitkänen, Project Manager from TietoEnator Pulp and Paper Mill Solutions.
