Pemeco Simplifies Mecaer America's Supply Chain

Montreal, Canada (PressExposure) October 01, 2009 -- In 2009, Pemeco facilitated a supply chain optimization project at Mecaer America Inc.'s (MAI) aerospace manufacturing facility in Montreal, Quebec. Pemeco was retained to improve the performance of MAI's management of inventory, production, capacity, risk, and finance.

The optimization project was aimed at enhancing MAI's operational transparency and responsiveness by integrating its value chain activities. Pemeco designed, customized and implemented a Planning Dashboard that interfaced with MAI's INFOR Baan ERP system. The Dashboard enables real-time analysis of supply-chain planning, production scheduling and shop capacity. By using the Dashboard, MAI's Planning Department saves 32 hours of administrative time per month and reduces the incidence of errors caused by manual data entry.

MAI also implemented a bar-coding system on the shop floor that has improved MAI's inventory management and production scheduling. Finally, Pemeco electronically integrated MAI's finance activities with the supply chain through a custom-developed ERP-interfacing budget application. MAI's ability to review real-time performance indicators for supply chain, manufacturing, and sales has resulted in more accurate forecasting and enhanced operational responsiveness to demand shifts.
