Aerospace and Defense industry regulations consistently grow in number and complexity, putting pressure on the workforce and the bottom line. With increasing resource shortages, cost-cutting demands and product design changes, it’s difficult to be competitive. Quantum supports all aspects of the industry’s specialized, complex, discrete manufacturing needs from supply chain to production to historical archiving of complete, traceable part records.
Aerospace and Defense manufacturing is complex and exacting, with no room for error. Quantum supports every phase of Aerospace manufacturing. Work-in-Progress (WIP) dashboards provide far more visibility than typical andon boards or red-yellow-green charting. Analytics provide instant comparison to previous period performance. Real-time production workflows manage work in progress, planned work and rework paths automatically.
"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."
Close the production loop at a single location or across the entire enterprise while providing the foundation for Smart Manufacturing with Quantum MES.
For more than 20 years, CIMx has been a leading provider of innovative solutions for the Aerospace & Defense industries. Quantum Paperless Manufacturing has the solution you've been waiting for because Quantum was designed with the needs of the manufacturer at its core.
A government contracted manufacturer had a new plant opening in 5 weeks. There was an immediate need for distribution and management of work instructions. CIMx was also able to provide the ability to collect precision machining data on complex parts with support through a remote IT staff.
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.
“CIMx helped us create a world-class paperless facility”
An aerospace and defense manufacturer struggled to share work, planning and data across sites because they lacked a company standard. Each site had different workflow processes and used unique naming conventions. Attempts to collect data or run reports from multiple sites resulted in errors. Planning couldn’t be shared across sites resulting in duplicate work, errors and difficulty accessing production data.
Increased efficiency became a major cost savings at every plant; customer estimates place the savings at more than US$1M annually. These sustainable savings were a result of increased staff efficiency and the ability to accurately and quickly transfer work between plants.
An American engine manufacturer was bogged down with paper systems, wait times, errors and duplicate systems lengthening their schedules. CIMx provided a Paperless solution to eliminate wait times, duplicate systems and errors.
Integrating Quantum's sustainably saved months off of their schedules. Following the success of our partnership CIMx received an award as top supplier of the year and the customer project manager received a promotion.
With a single source of production information and control, duplicate systems and data entry were removed, eliminating another source of errors and delays. The software automated routine tasks, allowing operators to focus on value-added work.
Paperless Manufacturing reduces waste,
Quantum provides complete control and visibility of your current processes. Quantum is a single, integrated source of manufacturing data. Identify issues before they affect your bottom line.
Data Migration Engine gives you secure access to old production records. Compare, complete and even correct data you can’t access reliably today. Build current production goals with prior performance metrics.
