Why Price Should Not Be the Final Factor When Purchasing ERP Software

IQFeature of the Week -- Manufacturing Intelligence
Did you know that...IQMS provides real time shop floor production performance data in easy to read dashboards?
IQMS EnterpriseIQ Manufacturing Intelligence interface provides real time manufacturing data and statistics directly from machines and machine level PLCs to increase plant floor visibility and productivity. Critical parameters such as machine utilization, OEE, part counts, production time, downtime, rejects, scrap and more are graphically displayed in charts and graphs to visually monitor enterprise or specific work center performance.
Users define which performance and measurement parameters to capture and analyze for each item or tooling configuration thus providing flexibility to gather unique, job specific statistics.
