Choosing Aquiweb MES software

As part of its policy of digitalizing its workshops, Ferco was looking for a way:

  • Monitor workshop productivity in real time De suivre la productivité de son atelier en temps réel
  • De dématérialiser les postes de travail
  • D’optimiser les ressources de production
  • De diminuer les arrêts de production et les temps de saisie
  • D’améliorer la qualité produite

In this context, the group specializing in fittings called on Astrée Software to integrate its MES software Aquiweb into the Reding workshop. The Aquiordo and Aquiqual modules, as well as the Aquiweb-Plantdata application, were commissioned at the Moselle site.


Ferco was present at Astrée MES day 2022. Its production manager, Stéphane Pich, took the opportunity to share his experience in implementing Aquiweb.

« Thanks to Aquiweb, our productivity has increased by 10 points. We’ve also saved time for operators. »
