Manufacturing software made easy   (800) 321-USER(8737)

ACE Controls, Inc., located in Farmington MI, had a requirement to improve their current system, to immediately implement a solution for the day-to-day scheduling challenges of the machine shop. Supported by the NIST/Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center, Resource Manager was selected both for its benefit/cost ratio and for compatibility on the company’s existing Excel platform, already used to communicate manufacturing reports. According to Dave Teumer, Buyer and Scheduling Manager, “What I especially like about the Resource Manager is that is was simple to get installed and up and running. We have improved our on-time delivery by being able to view the impact of different production schedules and workcenter loading. The product is so flexible and adaptable, it is quite easy to model different scenarios to determine if a certain method or schedule can actually benefit our bottom line.”
