The manufacturing industry has entered a completely new technological realm that did not even exist five years ago. Three industrial revolutions forever changed manufacturing—and the world—and the fourth is now underway. Factories have had to adapt rapidly with the advent of advanced automation and robotics as well as software to manage processes and control. The onset of digital manufacturing accelerates the need for new approaches. While consumers typically embrace disruptive technology with enthusiasm, manufacturers inevitably approach new technology with caution, carefully evaluating how it can improve their businesses. Eventually, however, caution must be replaced with innovation to ensure survival. Those organizations that find themselves on the wrong side of the technology curve today will face increasing challenges to remain competitive as time marches forward.

There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices. This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide: • Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio • Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope • Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks • Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.

Like many manufacturers, your shop floor operations may be challenged with inefficient standard processes, unpredictable downtime, and difficulties with machinery maintenance. A manufacturing execution system (MES) can help make the most of your shop floor’s capabilities, with tools that can identify under-performing and high-performance machines, and then optimize asset utilization accordingly. Engineers can design, refine, and implement better work processes, and operations professionals can improve preventive maintenance and response times. The result is less downtime, less scrap, more productivity, and lower cost. With the real-time information of an MES, you can transform the shop floor into an important contributor that drives the strategic direction of your business, differentiates your brand, and positions your company as a market leader.

Illinois-based manufacturer Plano Molding sought to replace a paper-and-pencil data collection process with an automated manufacturing execution system (MES). They wanted a real-time look at production data. Many of their decisions were made based on observations and guesses rather than facts, and they needed deeper insights. To improve shop floor efficiency and anticipate and solve production issues before they occurred, Plano Molding implemented the Epicor Mattec MES system. The insights they gained into the shop floor are helping to drive bottom-line growth. Plano Molding has also seen significant scrap savings. Rather than focus on scrap percentage, the Mattec MES solution allows them to focus on higher-dollar-value products. This has led to the Plano Molding team saving $700,000 in scrap improvements. Read the success story to learn more about Plano Molding’s experience and consider how your business might benefit from a modern production system like Epicor Mattec MES.

Midsize Aerospace and Aviation manufacturers need to choose a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help. It drives better product development performance by managing product-related data, processes and projects. While smaller companies may be able to control, access and share product data with relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger manufacturers rely on full featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global Aerospace and Aviation companies.
