It’s hard to make good decisions without good information. Having access to data, and the tools to quickly analyze that data, is essential. Without data, you are blind to how your business is performing and areas for improvement—all you have to go on is instinct.
A robust business intelligence (BI) system can provide new insights to help steer your distribution organization clear of obstacles that impede growth—and toward the opportunities that enable it. A monthly report just doesn’t cut it anymore. You need real-time information, and if you’re running legacy software, it’s probably slowing you down.
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.
