Double H Plastics, Inc. and IQMS: Automating to the Top
Historically, Double H Plastics has been on the leading edge of manufacturing innovation; for example, the company invented the first plastic bendy straw, and is a leading producer of lids for food packaging and plastic cores for cash register paper rolls.
Until recently, however, Double H's software systems were anything but innovative. In fact, a Unix/DOS-based system from the 1970s (complete with green screens) couldn't provide real-time data, lacked integration across the enterprise, and simply couldn't keep up with the company's expansive growth.
Read this case study to learn how implementing a modern enterprise resource planning (ERP) system has allowed Double H Plastics to introduce automation into its shop floor processes and integrate relevant data in order to:
- Save approximately $100,000 per year by reducing employee labor time by 30 percent
- Increase warehouse efficiency in product movement by 20 percent
- Schedule and track production data in real time
- Eliminate duplicate pulls
- And much more!
