Agile PLM Helps Improve Manufacturing Efficiencies for Leading EMS Company
Three Five Systems (TFS) chose the Agile PLM platform as the company sought to capitalize on its leadership in visual display solutions and expand into a full-services electronics manufacturer. Agile is currently deployed in seven TFS locations around the globe, from Beijing to Orlando.
"Three-Five Systems looked for a solution that would help reduce the administrative processes and cycle time associated with engineering change orders at our factories," said Carl Derrington, vice president operations and chief manufacturing officer, Three Five Systems. "What we found with Agile PLM was a solution that maps to our fundamental business objectives of increased manufacturing efficiencies and better service to our customers."
TFS credits Agile PLM with enabling the company to reduce engineering change order cycle times by 90 percent. In addition, the design centers at each factory location can more easily communicate change orders with each other, improving response times to individual customer requests.
"Three-Five Systems is a case study on successful business transformation and is a testament to the power of PLM," said Bryan Stolle, Agile CEO. "The innovative manufacturers of the future are distributed across the globe to gain access to the creative talents and competitive advantages of each marketplace. PLM provides the framework to keep these distributed resources working in synch."
