Wilmington, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/4/2006 -- According to Stephen Carson, Executive Vice-President with Visibility Corporation, “Many project-based manufacturers provide contract engineering and manufacturing services related to the production of electrical components and assemblies with multiple domestic and off-shore locations. These companies must have a consistent track record of growth by concentrating and effectively competing on quality, timeliness, and price. They require a state of the art process and quality control system that provides both the flexibility and consistency to deliver the highest quality manufacturing services and cost effective product delivery.”
Key Quality ETO (Engineer-to-Order) Challenges:
• Rapid expansion and addition of new facilities
• Increasing variety of manufactured products
• Requirement to achieve and sustain for full ISO 9000 quality system certification
• Need to reconcile disparate paper and electronic systems and tools used to plan, measure and manage quality control
• Need to reduce costs and maintain or improve product quality
By defining a specific solution with well defined integration into the core VISIBILITY ERP application, the project-based manufacturers meet or exceed the requirements of each challenge, while assuring that the solution would be long-lived without bearing the burden which can accompany stand-alone custom solutions.
