Remec Broadband Wireless was challenged with arduous paper processes that had to be replicated at two facilities -- one in the United States and a manufacturing facility in the Philippines -- which resulted in resource burdens and posed a high potential for user error. The company wanted to implement a system for paperless capture of Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) with online approvals and complete tracking of all changes as well as maintain links to CARs (Corrective Action Reports), FAIs (First Article of Inspection), and TDAs (Temporary Deviation Article), for any given part. A single repository for product documentation and controlled product revisions across remote sites was extremely important in order to get everyone in sync.
As a fast growing company, Remec Broadband Wireless looked for an affordable, scalable Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution that also integrated tightly with their existing Intuitive ERP environment in order to provide one common database that sent data to and from the ERP system.
"Since implementing Empower PLM, we have reduced our ECO cycle from 39 days to 22 days -- about a 46% reduction," stated Michiel Van Meurs, IT Manager for Remec Broadband Wireless. "Omnify has become an integral part of our suite of business tools and has helped us begin to achieve our product development goals by allowing for more accurate data tracking, supplying a common database for all of our product documentation, providing workflows that everyone accesses the same way, and for serving as a common repository for changes that are to be reviewed by a global team. It has contributed to more effective communication between our sites and that helps everything run much more smoothly and quickly."
"The need for our customers to implement more effective communication among their local and remote sites is growing," stated Chuck Cimalore, CTO for Omnify Software. "We are continuously finding ways to facilitate this which is evident in our latest product release, Empower PLM 5.0, with a completely browser-based platform for easier accessibility."
