Leadership

Quantum gives you real-time production visibility and performance analytics. Get true production costs, compare work center performance to prior periods and calculate your exact margins. Know in advance when an order may not ship on-time and why. CIMx has a deep background in discrete manufacturing and regulated industries, having delivered Production Planning and Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) tools to customers since 1996.

With Quantum, you can plan, predict and problem-solve without a pause in production.  

Real-time Analytics

Quantum Analytics delivers data on your entire production process from order and part cost analysis to labor efficiencies across orders, processes and work centers. Raw data becomes actionable intelligence viewed on the floor or from your desk.

Rapid ROI

Quantum customers typically see a Return on Investment (ROI) in their first 6 months of usage; these are hard cost savings. Quantum increases production rates, cuts reporting times and eliminates machine and personnel downtime. Your production is on-time, more accurate and more efficient.

Smart Manufacturing

Quantum gives you instant access to production rates and returns. Make data-driven decisions and gain the tools to view & correct production issues as they occur. You get complete Production Control by adding the manufacturing visibility your ERP lacks.

Quality Control

Quantum Production Control™ gives you complete control of operations, including orders, operators, schedules and machines. Reports are available on-demand throughout production, so you have accurate information for daily or weekly production meetings. Close the Quality Control feedback loop with automatic tolerance checks and built-in rework paths. Compare current production rates with prior periods, so you can report advances to your management and ask for resources where you need them with the data to back it up. 

Eliminate Scrap

Operators build what you tell them to; missing information in paper build books or in aging ERP instructions eliminate profit and cause scrap. Control the information to your operators and get rid of costly errors.

Quality Alerts

Quantum Quality Control™ collects data throughout production and automatically directs non-conforming work. Non-conformance Management increases the speed of rework and preserves order delivery dates with programmable alerts.

Finite Scheduling

Quantum Finite Scheduling manages current orders, planned work and problem workflows to remove the uncertainty, cost and issues associated with production. Build to specification and schedule every time.

Engine Manufacturer

Case Study

The Problem

This military equipment manufacturer was opening a new plant and struggled to meet the demands of the complex and heavily regulated production process. They sought a solution to: create, distribute and manage digital work instructions, collect the precision machining data necessary on complex parts, and create accurate/complete audit records. Their scheduling was more guesswork than science. They knew their paper-based processes resulted in errors and production wait times. However, without clarity or visibility into the production process, the manufacturer couldn’t determine a solution.

Defense Manufacturing

The Solution

CIMx suggested implementing a digital manufacturing system for the new plant. The system could manage the detailed work instructions required for manufacturing, and offered the easiest path to the comprehensive and auditable production records necessary for regulatory compliance. CIMx installed and configured the software, while moving the required data and records into the system. Simultaneously, users were trained in the solution. With the system in place, the software automated almost all of the data collection necessary for the audit records, including precision machining data. With no IT resources on site at the opening, CIMx configured the solution to be supported by remote IT resources.

By partnering with CIMx through the use of their software applications and their friendly, responsive, and competent staff of employees, we have no doubt that we will have nothing less than total success.

Manufacturing Executive

The Result

The new location opened on time. The manufacturing software was configured, installed and loaded in less than 5 weeks. With the rapid training and intuitive solution, the entire plant was operational and running at the opening. The software delivered comprehensive support for manufacturing and managed planning and operations at the opening. The solution provides the complete audit records necessary for regulatory compliance.
