If someone gave you a week of time, what would you do with it? A whole seven days is exactly what Nicolet Plastics, Inc. is delivering its customers with its innovative Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) program. Through an enterprise-wide initiative that relentlessly emphasizes lead time reduction, Nicolet Plastics is revolutionizing time-based competition and make-to-order strategies to ensure manufacturing excellence (With impressive results - 2012 will be the best year in Nicolet Plastics' history, both in terms of revenue and earnings).
Nicolet Plastics credits a large portion of its QRM success to the flexibility, depth, user-defined fields and forms, process and workflow design and database integrity of its manufacturing ERP and MES system, EnterpriseIQ from IQMS. Without it, the QRM strategy would be very difficult to deploy on a day-to-day basis.
