Campbell, Calif. and Charlotte, N.C. - Camstar introduced on January 15 a new analytical service program that enables global manufacturers to isolate manufacturing inefficiencies and suggests strategic solutions to alleviate problem areas. Camstar's professional services unit, Camstar Solutions Group (CSG), will conduct Rapid MES Assessment, a four-week program that works in conjunction with internal management to identify improvement opportunities, analyze potential technology investments and provide recommendations.

CSG performs the MES Assessment program using a five-step Total Value Management methodology to generate a detailed ROI. Utilizing industry benchmark data, CSG quantifies and measures companies' current performance against their primary competitors. These measures provide the foundation for defining corrective measures and recommending technology solutions that increase manufacturing performance. CSG performs a comprehensive operations analysis by assigning the financial benefit to improvements in labor cost, material utilization, and plant efficiency.

'For many companies, the production environment remains an untapped source for reducing costs and driving revenue gains,' said Rob Rudder, vp of business development and solutions marketing for Camstar. 'Business leaders are discovering that strategic investments in their manufacturing operations enable faster production, higher quality, and increased customer satisfaction. CSG's Rapid MES Assessment program works closely with financial and manufacturing executives in order to present a comprehensive overview of their operations and spotlight those performance gaps where technology can deliver the greatest value and maximize performance.'

With 15 years of expertise in manufacturing technology, Camstar and CSG can quickly demonstrate to global manufacturing executives the strategic and tactical benefits of manufacturing execution solutions. For those enterprises with distributed manufacturing environments, Camstar's Collaborative Manufacturing Execution (CME) solutions optimizes end-to-end supply chain visibility seamlessly integrating real-time production information into other enterprise systems. This creates a planning, execution, and analytical architecture that maximizes manufacturing utilization and enables companies to create higher-margin, build-to-order production environments.

InSiteLive is the plant-level backbone of Camstar's Virtual Factory Suite of applications that enable global manufacturers to manage multiple plants, processes and businesses as a single factory. The Virtual Factory creates a collaboration layer that enables live production information to be shared across enterprise systems and with partners and customers. By creating a live information infrastructure within the manufacturing enterprise, businesses improve efficiency and return on assets while increasing customer satisfaction.
