As a purpose-driven, manufacturing process-centric solution, MV2 enables deeper integration with manufacturing workflows and leverages production intelligence— by offering real-time notifications on a wide spectrum of issues. Paper-Less MV2 is designed to meld into the workflows on the production floor. “Our Sub-Routing feature goes beyond ERP based routing steps to allow more detailed tasks to be defined and support more complex manufacturing environments and interfacing with plant floor automation,” says LeRoy. MV2’s Digital Shop Packets provides workers the supporting information needed to produce the legitimate product—accessible to production workers. Additionally, it’s browserbased, mobile and multiple device interoperability allows managers and workers an easy access to Paper-Less’ MV2 for managing material and handling production systems. Companies using multi-tiered ERP systems or disparate ERP systems benefit from the easy user interface provided by MV2. “Paper-Less MV2 also provides multi- language support for English, Spanish, Chinese, French and German languages,” points out LeRoy. From an ERP perspective, experts at Paper-Less have the knowledge required to improve the manufacturing process.
For instance, Norlen, a metal fabricating and stamping company that serves aerospace customers, required assistance to improve their quality conformance, accuracy of reporting customer order status and on-time delivery performance. The company also wanted to move from a paper-generating, multi-system shop floor environment to a streamlined, paperless and fully integrated eco-system. “We helped them save four to five reams of paper every week and eliminated the need for expensive printing equipment, which allowed supervisors to save a minimum two hours per day,” explains LeRoy. This reduced paper work and this ability allowed them to release jobs efficiently to the shop floor—resulting in greater accuracy, higher productivity and level of job satisfaction.
Paper-Less continues to accomplish customer objectives, like the MES implementation for CPI Aero-structures. The company achieved new levels of functionality and efficiency by implementing Paper-Less’ procedurecentric MES software which earned Paper- Less a Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Technology Partner Award.
MES solution ensures Aerospace/Defense manufacturing accountability and quality while increasing efficiency and addressing compliance requirements
Moving ahead, Paper-Less aims to expand its MES technology and service solutions to increase visibility into production processes in innovative ways. “Mobile and cloud applications and integration of machine level interfaces are some of the technologies we are working to incorporate for the benefit of our customers,” concludes LeRoy.
