BRAVO software applied at commercial concrete production unit

Commercial concrete production enterprises must simultaneously meet production needs and meet…


In Vietnam, the process of “urbanization – industrialization” is developing strongly, whereby the infrastructure system serves this process. are also focused on developing by the government and businesses such as: Public transport systems, industrial parks and especially new urban areas.

To meet the needs of infrastructure construction With that growing infrastructure, construction investors depend a lot on subcontractors who are able to meet ancillary products that both ensure quality and ensure the implementation schedule according to the requirements of the project. strict time requirements of the project. One of the supporting industries that plays an important role in the projects is the PRODUCTION OF COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION (Fresh Concrete).

At these enterprises, has its own production characteristics (The production process is very different from other manufacturing industries) and at the same time, enterprises must also meet the needs of production and construction according to construction projects. Therefore, the application of strict and systematic management processes BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION SOFTWARE support leaders and departments handle the complex business cycles of this manufacturing industry.

Software BRAVO 8R2 (ERP-VN) upon application at units specializing in  COMMERCIAL CONCRETE (Fresh Concrete) which are customized according to the  very specific operations of enterprises in the industry. The system is built with the purpose of helping businesses solve problems of administration and operation of processes built on software according to the goal of “quality assurance and progress assurance” .

1. Software database organization
The common feature of commercial concrete production enterprises is that the area and scope of production and business are dispersed in many different locations and areas (offices, batching plants, …). Therefore, in addition to the needs of customers, when building solutions, BRAVO consults on solutions to organize and stream data for convenience in business operations, closely in management of development issues. Generate and synthesize all activities in the customer’s production and business organization system.

a. Organizational model for updating and exploiting system data

As mentioned, because the locations where the software is used are spread across geographical regions, BRAVO needs to build a data system that combines a synchronous data solution to ensure the timeliness of data  (for issues of inheritance, tracking and management of arising data) and data continuity  (to ensure continuity of sales and production in case of failure) connection, reducing the delay in transactions that need to be counted continuously such as sales, goods import,…).

Describe the option

At headquarters

  • Install 01 software BRAVO 8R2 (ERP – VN) including “running program” and “database” on the server (Server);
  • In departments, computers that are allowed to access the software (Client) will be declared (machine name, user ID) and installed “running programs” for users to update information. , data to the software;
  • Users will be managed and decentralized according to each user’s role in the relevant departments.

At factory and branches

  • Install software BRAVO 8R2 (ERP-VN) only “run program” (does not include “database” ) on the client computers of the departments, users participate in using the software to update and receive online data about the software on the server at the head office.
  • Users are decentralized and authorized to ensure independence and responsibility when updating data into the system.

(Recommendation: To ensure stability and data safety when operating the software, BRAVO recommends equipping a backup server, a backup server serving two main tasks: replacing The main server operates the system and backs up the software’s data.The main server and backup server integrate equivalent physical hard drives and are configured according to hard drive Raid solutions: Raid 0, Raid1, Raid 10).


b. Grouping user data classes at each use location

In addition to inheriting data arising in the system, each department has its own, independent and sometimes confidential operations with other departments. Therefore, for users’ convenience in operating and manipulating the software, BRAVO divides the user interface into layers (Layout). Specifically:

            Corporate Office

  • Layout of the Board of Directors
  • Layout of Sales Department
  • Shopping Room Layout
  • Layout of Accounting Department
  • Layout of Human Resources Department
Mixing Plant

  • Layout Commander
  • Layout Planning Room
  • Warehouse Layout
  • Layout Manage vehicle and equipment assets
  • Layout Weighing Station
