June 20, 2006

IQMS extends EnterpriseIQ software functionality using embedded mesh network technology and a proprietary mote design.


PASO ROBLES, Calif. /PRNewswire/ -- IQMS, a leader in the design and development of enterprise resource planning software, announced the availability of its new EnterpriseIQ RealTime Wireless Production Monitoring System. Using mesh network technology and a proprietary mote design, the system offers a higher level of flexibility and control by enabling real-time production management from anywhere at any time. With RealTime Wireless Production Monitoring, there are no cumbersome wires and cables to hinder shop floor configurations, and accurate production data is always accessible from any network device, even remotely, as it occurs.

A standards-based wireless technology interface extends the comprehensive functionality already found in IQMS's existing EnterpriseIQ RealTime Production Monitoring system. With embedded wireless technology, EnterpriseIQ RealTime Production Monitoring can wirelessly synchronize all network machines to monitor discrete, cyclical, and continuous operations. Communication is streamlined through message formats and network protocols without the added cost and hassle incurred by cabled monitoring systems.

"The wired version of RealTime Production Monitoring has been providing benefit to manufacturers worldwide for over ten years," said Randy Flamm, president and CEO at IQMS. "Now, with wireless functionality, RealTime is easier to use, costs less, and further supports the drive toward leaner manufacturing operations. As a single-source, wireless solution, RealTime delivers more flexibility while still enabling cost-effective, centralized control over plant operations. The result is improved efficiency, greater visibility, and higher levels of productivity."

By connecting directly to shop floor machines, EnterpriseIQ RealTime Wireless Production Monitoring tracks all aspects of production immediately as parts are being made and applied to the shop orders. Data updates are instantaneous and continual, and require no human intervention. Critical data, such as parts created, production time, down time, rejects, parts remaining to be produced, and finished product counts, is collected and conveyed to the manufacturing schedule in seconds. Reporting is made simple as well with automatic production shift reports that simplify inventory reconciliation and increase data integrity.
