Sep 24, 2008 (08:09 AM EDT)

PASO ROBLES, Calif., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- IQMS, a leader in the design and development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, today announced the release of its newest Assembly manufacturing type, designed especially for manufacturers seeking consistent quality and greater traceability within assembly processes. Assembly manufacturing is one of more than twelve manufacturing types supported within EnterpriseIQ, the company's innovative, single-source ERP software solution.

While process and jobshop oriented facilities have always benefited from EnterpriseIQ, the introduction of the specific Assembly manufacturing type further enhances tracking of complex routing structures. Benefits of this Assembly structure include the ability to identify product availability and costs at each stage of production as well as the option of choosing between dispatch lists or finite scheduling. More varied companies will also benefit from the detailed lot traceability, operator certifications, and training and tool tracking functionalities.

"Every year, demands on manufacturers increase. To stay competitive, companies often need to create more complex, multi-level bills of material while still maintaining control and consistency," says Randy Flamm, president and founder of IQMS. "Recently we have seen a trend toward more requirements for machine shop, metal fabricators, and process-related operations -- especially in the medical device field, which has strict traceability concerns and constraints. This latest manufacturing type follows in the tradition of giving all our customers greater flexibility to drive lean and agile operations throughout the assembly process."

Like all aspects of the EnterpriseIQ system, the Assembly manufacturing type is designed and developed exclusively by IQMS, so additional functionality to other areas of the software is inherent. From Preventative Maintenance to Statistical Process Control (SPC) to Inventory and Document Control, the IQMS Assembly manufacturing type works seamlessly with these modules to provide one complete, user-friendly software package.
