Alpha Packaging Implements InfinityQS ProFicient for Manufacturing Intelligence


Alpha Packaging, a manufacturer and decorator of bottles and jars for the nutritional, pharmaceutical, personal care, household and automotive chemical, and niche food and beverage markets, has selected InfinityQS ProFicient to automate data collection, take control of quality, and achieve visibility across its manufacturing operations. The company has deployed InfinityQS ProFicient at two plants

qms  offers a lot of QMS functionality. In general, the company’s strengths lie in the manufacturing operations management (MOM) subset of QMS functionality, as its enterprise quality hub, ProFicient, delivers real-time visibility from the shop floor, across the enterprise, and into the supply chain. The previous system was considered outdated and archaic because it did not allow Alpha Packaging to capture real-time data from machines, so the company had to evaluate data from the finished product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

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

As an example, abas has seen requirements for ISO9001:2008, ISO TS 16949:2002, QS 9000, VDA 6.1, VDA 6.4, FDA 21 CFR 11, EN 29001, 9342 EWG, Read More

In this scenario, data might be accurate at the plant level, but in aggregate this data has been inconsistent, unreliable, and not current. Needless to say, this approach isn’t ideal, as in today’s manufacturing world, executives need a real-time enterprise view of quality across plants, regions, and suppliers to manage brand quality, Read More

ProfitKey in 2014—the Manufacturing ERP Solution’s New Look and Status


Two years in the life of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software company can make a huge difference. That is particularly true in the case of ProfitKey International (PKI). Two years or so since our last in-person briefing at the company’s Salem, New Hampshire head office, the vendor seems to have shaken off two major issues that have long plagued it.

qms  (MES), quality management system (QMS), and multi-media document management capabilities (see screenshots below, click for larger images).   In addition to Epicor, Made2Manage, and Infor VISUAL, ProfitKey also competes with Global Shop Solutions, Shoptech E2, Exact JobBOSS, Jobscope , and ECi M1 . For North American discrete MTO and ETO manufacturing companies in single locations or multiple independent locations, ProfitKey seems to be a very good fit.

Will Adonix Provide A Warmer Home To CIMPRO? Part Two: Market Impact


Contrary to most peer vendors, which started their ERP applications in the manufacturing space, Adonix first established a strong presence and functionality in the distribution/logistics field.

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

qms  (MES) capabilities? 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. To be fair, it may not necessarily be a feature issue with MES. 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

SAP to Harness HANA and Mobility for the 4th Industrial Revolution


While some analysts may question the true revenue figure that can be attributed solely to SAP HANA (i.e., whether SAP is intentionally crediting HANA with revenues that might be attributable to other SAP offerings), the fact remains that businesses have currently only just scratched the surface of SAP HANA’s potential. For example, SAP recently announced that HANA would underpin new releases of

qms  and quality management system (QMS), and these capabilities are good enough and cheap (PC-based apps). If someone wanted massive corporate dataware, SAP HANA could be of some use. But most plant-level apps are not really that data crunching. They monitor min and max limits, and if the batch trends start to approach or exceed a limit, a message is sent. At a very large chemical plant, there might be 50 data feeds (one per equipment) every 30 seconds. Each data feed is an independent event, which does not Read More
