This Aerospace and Defense manufacturer regularly shared production work across plants but a lack of company standards meant the production information couldn’t follow the parts. Sites used different processes and naming conventions. Attempts to collect data or run reports from multiple sites resulted in failure, duplicate work, errors and difficulty accessing production data. Internal resources hadn’t been successful in establishing a sustainable company standard for manufacturing data, so they turned to CIMx Software for a solution.
CIMx tools support both corporate standards and site variability, allowing unique machines and processes across facilities without customization of the product. CIMx identified common standards and site-specific work for this customer. Configuration of the product across sites allowed standard production processes and special processes unique to local workflows. Connection to Oracle ERP and an internal Quality Management System (QMS) provided real-time data across all facilities, individual site reporting requirements and special site-specific operations in standard planning. This allowed sites to continue to use local rule sets and create local reports where necessary without compromising the company standard. Today, work flows consistently between plants with the corresponding digital and paper (where required) records. Plant savings were estimated at US $1M per plant per year.
Working with CIMx, we have been able to utilize their software to document the extensive methods of manufacturing products for the defense industry and maintain on file an "as-built" record for every part manufactured.
The customer now has control of the entire production supply chain, from initiation of the order to production completion. Increased efficiency drives significant cost savings at every plant; customer estimates place the savings at more than US $1M annually at each site as a result of increased staff efficiency and the ability to accurately and quickly transfer work between plants. CIMx Software’s strategy to connect plants delivered uninterrupted operations, even during new software application releases and customer configuration changes.

I can't emphasize enough that CIMx's background in process planning really got us over the hump. We were actually going to go the route of having a system custom-developed for us...
