IQMS Addresses Manufacturing Compliance and Capacity Challenges at NPE 2015
IQMS will demonstrate ERP and MES solutions for modern manufacturing issues, such as growing capacity and regulatory compliance, at booth W4489 during #NPE2015
PASO ROBLES, CALIF. – March 23, 2015 – IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software and MES developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, today announced that it will be showcasing new software features at NPE 2015 designed to resolve two modern manufacturing challenges: The desire to grow capacity without increasing resources and the need to adhere to strict industry compliance and regulations.
According to the U.S. Federal Reserve, plastic and rubber manufacturing capacity utilization is up nearly 10 percent since NPE 2012. To keep up with demand, manufacturers are seeking ways to increase capacity without adding floor space, equipment or personnel. Using automation, such as IQMS' native planning, scheduling and process monitoring modules, manufacturers can add capacity using their existing plant and equipment. Additionally, IQMS' real-time automation functions instantaneously collect production data and automatically relay it to the ERP solution for tracking and analysis, allowing manufacturers to adapt production schedules to real output in real time.
Compliance and Regulations:
2014 was the worst year on record for automotive recalls, more than double the previous year. The medical industry did not fare much better, with the largest single-day recall of medical devices ever recorded occurring in September. Compliance, risk management and quality control are challenges that manufacturers cannot avoid. But with IQMS' end-to-end lot and serial traceability and embedded quality management suite (complete with electronic signatures, audit tools and secure document control), manufacturers can find relief from the changing regulatory environment.
"There is a reason that five out of the six 2014 Plastics News award winners were IQMS customers," said Steve Bieszczat, Chief Marketing Officer at IQMS. "We offer the modern manufacturing-specific tools and features that they need to be successful. Too many manufacturers are struggling with limiting software options, such as Excel spreadsheets, legacy ERP or general purpose, bolted together packages. It is amazing how the right tools, specifically designed for manufacturing, can facilitate business growth."
