Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) tools are critical for the design of highly complex, engineered parts. These systems provide critical simulations, predictive engineering and finite element analysis but PLM systems have a blind spot to the manufacturing shop floor.
Manufacturing Operations need operator-focused work views with tools, materials instructions, drawings, specifications and safety warnings. Production often requires multi-layer control in revision history and approvals, which PLM systems cannot provide. PLMs also lack the ability to deliver real-time order status and production conformance.
Manufacturers with large PLM installations often fight internally over the control between design and manufacturing engineering. In these cases, it is impossible to distribute or collect production information.
Quantum unlocks your PLM system’s potential, with direct access and control of the shop floor. CIMx's Data Migration Engine provides instant access to the information in your PLM without the need for expensive integrations.
"Our design team uses Teamcenter but they don’t know what manufacturing does or the requirements we have to collect production data on the shop floor. They throw the plans over the wall and we just write our data collections on the paper traveler."
Quantum Data Migration Engine has your solution.
Close the production loop at a single location or across the entire enterprise while providing the foundation for Smart Manufacturing with Quantum MES.
Quantum takes the frustration away from utilizing old files. Data Migration Engine EXTRACTS process planning, images, data and historical records from obsolete client/server systems, TRANSFORMS data into active objects, corrected data and consolidated information with guaranteed compliance and LOADS corrected objects into the proper processes, objects and activities.

Select an industry below and see how Quantum can make the difference.
A medical device manufacturer struggled to meet 21 CFR Part 11 regulations with paper-driven production processes. Mistakes in data collection and disparate manufacturing databases led to discrepancies and errors in production records. The error-prone paper-driven processes hindered production and led to costly quality escapes and repeated failed audits. With an upcoming serious audit fast approaching and the possibility of a partial shutdown, the manufacturer turned to CIMx early in January for a solution.
The customer achieved 100% improvement in compliance records, more than 30% reduction in quality escapes, and more than 10% increase in production volume.
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.
A manufacturing company purchased a supplier providing components to their products. Integration into their company manufacturing standards was essential for record standardization, visibility and control of production between sites. The production records required rigorous accuracy and completeness to provide traceability of all parts on all orders.
The compatible information, data and production records between sites increased efficiency across the organization. The paperless solution has eliminated quality escapes and integrated traceability records. Operation across the sites and systems is now seamless, contributing an estimated annual savings far exceeding the one-time cost of the solution.
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 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.
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.
