Kim's Chocolates (KC)

Kim's Chocolates, founded in 1987 with headquarters in Tienen, is a world-renowned manufacturer of Belgian chocolate. Both under its own brand (Cachet and KC Chocolatier) and for private labels, the finest chocolate and the most delicious pralines are prepared with finesse. Export to Canada and the United States form an important part of the turnover.

Due to its strong growth, in recent years Kim's has made significant investments to significantly expand production and logistics capacity. Strong digitization also plays an important role in the company's long-term strategy. An important part of this is the implementation of an integrated MOMS (Manufacturing Operations Management System) solution to manage all operations.
 

MOMS with Agidens

Under the guidance of the Agidens business analysts, a thorough analysis of the existing processes  was carried out at Kim's. Together with the operational managers of Kim's Chocolates a plan was made to digitize the production process.

All facets of the company's production process were scrutinized: thorough scheduling, automatic quality checks, digital work instructions, optimizing logistic flows, registration of process parameters  and the connections with PLCs, scanners, printers, checkweighers and packaging lines to be able to organize dynamic labelling. Agidens will implement the MOMS solution with MEScontrol.net in order to optimally meet all these requirements.
 

An integrated solution

For a thorough integration a link with the ERP system is necessary for order processing, invoicing, inventory management and other administrative tasks. In this way, Kim's Chocolates will gain insight into all operations with full real-time traceability and dynamic operational dashboards.
 

The progress of the project

The project will be implemented in 2 phases over 2 years, with the ultimate goal of sustainable, paperless operations for the more than 160 employees.
