abas-USA and Pickert & Partner GmbH recently announced a new partnership, which will integrate the Pickert RQM quality management system (QMS) with abas ERP.

In this scenario, data might be accurate at the plant level, but in aggregate this data has been inconsistent, unreliable, and not current.

The previous system was considered outdated and archaic because it did not allow Alpha Packaging to capture real-time data from machines, so the company had to evaluate data from the finished product instead of Read More

The Change of Guard at Plex Systems


Given that in mid-2012 Plex Systems, the first software company to build a full-fledged cloud-based manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, was sold by Apax Partners to Francisco Partners and Accel Partners, it was not too surprising to hear about the early 2013 appointment of technology industry veteran Jason Blessing as the company’s chief executive officer (CEO). Such

Plex Systems’ QMS is strong, particularly traceability capabilities, but its MES might not yet be at a best-of-breed level to be able to play in areas with complex MES requirements.

Two common issues are familiarity with the apps that are specific to each distributed control system (DCS) and amount of code in the DCS or equipment that relies on the legacy DCS naming conventions. The cost to map every possible local Read More
