Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) June 27, 2011
Solarsoft Business Systems, a leading provider of enterprise software and IT services to manufacturers worldwide, announced today that Plastic Age Products, a Montreal-based custom injection molder, plans to reduce time-consuming manual production-data collection and boost business efficiencies by implementing both Solarsoft’s integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution and manufacturing execution system (MES) for the shop floor.
“Our legacy business system requires a lot of manual data entry and a duplication of efforts between departments,” says William Nahorniak, Marketing and Sales at Plastic Age Products. “There’s no integration or real-time visibility. When it comes to production planning, too many resources are needed to verify component requirements, resulting in downtime and avoidable expenses. Solarsoft’s integration of planning, accounting and inventory information will allow us to eliminate the associated errors and lost time. In addition, our production team and project leaders will have easy access to the monitoring of production progress, time to completion and shipping.”
Plastic Age Products’ 122,000-square-foot facility is one of the most modern plastic injection molding plants in North America, equipped with 28 injection molding machines (most equipped with five-axis robots) and a wide variety of auxiliary equipment. Solarsoft’s Mattec real-time manufacturing execution and production monitoring system will be used to help manage production cycles and shop floor efficiencies.
“Currently, our foreman manually logs downtime, cycle time and production data,” says Nahorniak. “Mattec will provide this data automatically, liberating our foremen to focus their efforts on productivity and quality improvements. Furthermore, Mattec can help us be proactive in identifying issues, allowing us to address them immediately. Solarsoft provides us with the right tools to help manage our business in a more efficient and effective manner to drive our company forward.”
