The company’s flagship product, Solumina streamlines and integrates Manufacturing Execution System and Manufacturing Operations Management (MES/MOM), Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) and Enterprise Quality Management System (EQMS) for operations and Supplier Quality Management.
The software delivers agile real-time business processes across enterprises that allow organizations to deliver faster manufacturing productivity by giving operators and supervisors visibility from the entire workforce. With the addition of MES, the company is able to cover a wide range of manufacturing support functions, which helps to get better real time visibility. “Solumina is purpose-built to provide aerospace compound manufacturers with the solutions, technologies, and tools to stay profitable,” adds Ladeira.
“Solumina delivers work instructions digitally and ensures that every operator on the personnel is abiding by the same set of instructions, further driving up accuracy and driving down errors,” says Ladeira. The software integrates with existing PLM and ERP to help manufacturers innovate faster by giving the proper input and reducing labor, so that it makes miscellaneous work simple. iBASEt provides the services required to ensure a smooth implementation and transition to Solumina.
The implementation methodology includes analyzing existing systems, recommending re-engineering of processes by implementing product to interface with key enterprise systems, and provide employee training. “We have a proven track record of delivering global implementations across multiple tiers of the supply chain,” says Ladeira.
iBASEt integrates complex manufacturing strategies which improves the company’s overall performance. Companies with complex manufacturing operations have standardized to improve supply chain visibility and performance. The company’s team of experts understands businesses, regulatory requirements, and prior system constraints behind current business practices, which enhances the implementation of an MES system.
For example, a company called General Dynamics AIS used Solumina to reduce workforce paperwork and top down visibility into quality. The company exemplifies Progressive Manufacturing and used the Solumina MES software suite as its core technology to modernize production operations and achieved a completely paperless shop floor. Dynamic AIS was able to provide direct benefit to their customers by providing quality and manufacturing data to support continuous improvement efforts. “We provide actual time data and manufacturing intelligence," says Ladeira.
