Composite Manufacturers rely on quick intervention to save valuable resources. When controlled materials, such as carbon, make manufacturing more art than science, rapid action is required to avoid costly mistakes. Control of operations is not enough; complete visibility and change management are required.
Engineering control only gets you half-way there. Quantum provides the ability to control the process from original engineering through real-time shop floor work. Insert new work flows into manufacturing processes more rapidly with single-touch access to proven rework patterns. Identify and solve every composite material and part problem with Quantum.
"We were able to switch our ERP from Baan to SAP and not a single part of the CIMx to ERP linkage broke in the transaction"
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 manufacturers. Quantum Paperless Manufacturing has the solutions the Carbon Composites industry has been waiting for because Quantum was designed with the needs of the manufacturer at its core.
A precision manufacturer struggled to support manufacturing operations with a legacy ERP system. The complex manufacturing process required multimedia work instructions which weren’t supported by the ERP.
Frequent downtime and instability in the enterprise software caused errors and production delays. CIMx was contacted to provide a solution to the gaps and problems between the needs of production and the limitations in the ERP.
The solution implemented by CIMx managed and secured production information through the move to a new ERP with no production downtime or changes needed in the manufacturing software. The system continued to support manufacturing during the volatile installation of a new ERP to replace the legacy ERP.
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.
