Cybex International , a manufacturer of exercise equipment, has selected the Data Collection Advantage software package from HighJump Software to support its progressive manufacturing practices.
The Data Collection Advantage solution will be implemented in two manufacturing facilities totaling nearly 500,000 square feet, and will integrate with Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise, Cybex’s ERP system. Cybex currently builds its products to order by utilizing a variety of automation technologies and lean practices. The HighJump solution will build upon these efforts by facilitating real-time inventory and work order tracking. Overall, Cybex plans to use the system to make significant improvements to inventory tracking systems which will correlate to increased efficiency and improved operational decision making. The system will track all stages of the manufacturing process from the point raw materials enter the facility to when finished goods are shipped to customers. Shop floor operators will receive work order instructions and input transactions into the system using touch screen technology. Material handlers will use mobile devices to input bin transfers and facilitate cycle counting, thus monitoring inventory movement in real-time. Cybex will also utilize the solution's web reporting capabilities to monitor shop floor activities, allowing floor supervisors to identify bottlenecks and other issues and make adjustments quickly.
