History

2005 thd. The Company "Rightstep" Was Founded. The core of Rightstep was made up of managers of manufacturing and IT companies, who by that time had many years of experience in managing operational divisions of companies, experience in implementing dozens of production facilities, and deep knowledge of the world's leading ERP and SCM systems. Key employees have been working together since the late 90s.

From the very beginning, the company positioned itself as a team with the highest level of expertise in the areas of complex software development and production and supply chain management. Rightstep was built, and still retains this structure, on the model of Western leading industry consulting companies: the company's managers (managing partners) are the most competent professionals involved in projects; some administrative functions (offices, their technical support, etc.) are provided by third-party companies (outsourcing); management is built on the project principle.

 

2008. Rightstep is changing its development strategy, having decided to stop using "traditional heavy ERP" such as SAP, Infor ERP Ln (BaaN), Infor ERP SyteLine. Many years of Russian distribution experience and isolated cases of their effective use directly in production clearly showed the inefficiency of such tools for quickly solving the problems of our customers.

Together with the German company SCM Solutions GmbH, the SCMo system developed on an advanced platform for that time is being introduced to the Russian market Microsoft.NET designed primarily for planning and monitoring local and distributed productions.

 

2010 year. The SCMo system is being developed jointly by Rightstep and SCMo Solutions GmbH in the areas of inventory management and accounting, production and supply management.

 

* 2012. Together with the French consulting company in the field of production organization IRIS Partenaries SA, Rightstep develops SCMo, adding functionality to support Lean and TOC management concepts, plus its own author's developments, including algorithms of the updated Rodov System (Novocherkassk system). The name of the system changes to Lean ERP SCMo.

 

2013 Rightstep acquires international intellectual property rights to SCMo, including all source codes and development tools, and patents it in the Russian Federation under the names "SPM-Production and Supply Planning and Monitoring System" and "Lean ERP SCMo".

 
Further development and development of the system is fully carried out by Rightstep experts, taking into account both their own experience and the best international management practices, including with the involvement of foreign consultants.

 

2015 year. A new version of the system, 2.5 (Microsoft platform), is being released, fully "equipped" with basic and advanced functions of ERP and SCM systems for production and supply management. The system has also added functionality that takes into account the peculiarities of the Russian industrial model.

 

2017 year. Time passes and the world changes. Due to the rapid development of global information technologies, the emergence of new planning algorithms and management methods, recently the advanced technological and methodological platform of SPM versions 2xx has become hopelessly outdated.

 

* After summarizing 10+ years of experience, analyzing the latest modern IT technologies and management methods, and their prospects — a decision is made to create a completely new version of the JMP. Open source software (Java development language, PosgreSQL DBMS) was chosen as the technology platform.

 

2018 year. A fundamentally new version of SPM 3.x is being released on an updated technology platform, with a new system architecture, ergonomics, and improved functionality, including support for Industry 4.0. The solution is registered in the Register of Domestic Software under No. 2619.

 

2019 year. Based on the analysis of many implemented projects and current developments, Rightstep creates a special configuration of the Start SPM.

 

SPM Start contains the main functionality required for small plants, as well as a comprehensive training course and methodological approaches aimed at quickly setting up and launching an integrated control system (closed loop).

 

2019-2020 years. In the course of the project implementation, an enterprise with a distributed structure and developed cooperation has created a SPM-CPU solution for centralized planning, management and monitoring of production and supply chains.

 

2021-2022 years. We continue to implement projects and develop the line of SPM solutions, focusing on the needs of customers. These are: long-cycle product assembly management; work distribution and shift-daily tasks for short-cycle DSE batches; mobile interface; additional functions and analytics for inventory accounting, production progress, on-line monitoring; improved navigation and ergonomics, and much more.

 

The goal set at the very beginning of the company's work – to make every manufacturing business we work with as efficient as possible — remains unchanged. Our solutions continue to work well to ensure fast order fulfillment across businesses of all sizes, structures, and ownership forms. With the target function of production and delivery: "just in time", "just in quantity", with minimal production costs and high productivity.

Partners

It is impossible to remain at the" cutting edge "of scientific thought and practical methods," stewing in the "own juice" of only your projects and only with your own, albeit high-class team. We are constantly developing our methods, techniques and systems, borrowing all the good new things that can be taken from our Western and Russian partners and willingly sharing with them the best unique solutions that we put in our enterprises.
