Paper Abstract

The organization of a company needs to refer to the production process and especially to the number of employees. Many enterprises which are growing, are primarily focused on the development of the technology and not on the development of the organization. This ends up in an increase of the turnover but in a reduced margin. For the development of the organization in growing companies there are two things necessary. The development of the staff to work systematically and coordinated in teams as well as the flow of the information and material between the teams.

ERP – systems are required to install the material and information flow especially in the work floor. Unfortunately many enterprises don’t use the ERP-systems to plan and control the material and information flow very detailed. In companies where the control of the material and information flow was installed, it could be demonstrated that the margin increased analog to it. The requirements to the development of the organization based on the increasing number of the employees are basically the same for most of the production processes like the production of metal sheet housings or the production of mirrors and lenses.
