Driving forward: Accelerating lean operations with EnterpriseIQ
America has traditionally relied on technology to drive lean initiatives. Since its inception in 1988, Nissen Chemitec America has utilized several different systems to manage enterprise operations; however, these systems were not designed to meet the specific needs of automotive injection molding suppliers, so they often blocked the company’s lean efforts.
In early 2003, Nissen Chemitec America set out to find an ERP system that could better support plastics manufacturers serving the automotive industry. Ultimately, Nissen Chemitec America selected EnterpriseIQ from IQMS because it delivers manufacturing-specific functionality and automotive industry requirements in a single-database system. Since installing EnterpriseIQ, Nissen Chemitec America has optimized operations to secure additional business from its largest customer; eliminated shipping errors; improved internal and customer communications; reduced maintenance costs more than 70%; and eliminated excess data entry.
