The latest update to iBase-t’s Solumina iSeries is reported to provide robust supplier quality functionality, along with efficiency enhancements.
LAKE FOREST, Calif.— The version i090 release of the Solumina iSeries Manufacturing Operations Platform from iBase-t comes with enhancements that drive efficiency in production and sustainment, improve ease of use, and support communication with suppliers around quality issues, the company said in a release.
According to iBase-t, the Solumina Manufacturing Operations Platform consists of an integrated suite of manufacturing execution systems (MES), supplier quality management (SQM), and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) software designed for complex, highly regulated discrete manufacturers. Enterprise quality management is embedded throughout the Solumina platform, integrating quality best practices into every process across the enterprise.
In addition to connecting manufacturing operations, quality, and sustainment management in a seamless flow of data across the value chain, the Solumina platform can be integrated with PLM and ERP systems to create a complete closed loop manufacturing solution, iBase-t said in the release.
Solumina iSeries, deployed as a cloud-hosted, SaaS tool, reportedly enables manufacturers and suppliers to accelerate the adoption of new digital technologies that can quickly drive business value. The i090 release of Solumina iSeries solves specific user limitations while improving functions throughout the manufacturing process, the company said.
Enhancements in the i090 release include a new look and feel that reflect iBase-t’s recent rebrand. They are also reported to include the ability to cancel or un-cancel work orders with just a few clicks.
“We are committed to continually evolving the innovation of Solumina with new features and improvements that meet our customers’ needs, and deliver value fast,” said iBase-t Chief Product and Technology Officer Sung Kim, in a statement. “Solumina iSeries continues to provide a strong foundation for manufacturers looking to digitally transform their operations, and we remain focused on providing the very best solutions to meet that demand.”
Solumina i090 also enables suppliers to use Solumina Supplier Quality Management (SQM) to provide feedback on discrepancies created for MES or MRO orders. With this new feedback channel, suppliers can add context to an issue assigned to them without rejecting the discrepancy or changing data in the discrepancy item. This is said to support more effective communication around quality. The i090 release also allows receiving inspectors and source inspectors to split inspection orders and manage them separately, driving efficiency, the company said.
The software company iBase-t aims to simplify how complex products are built and maintained. Founded in in Southern California in 1986, iBase-t develops software to ensure digital continuity across manufacturing, quality, and MRO operations on a global scale.
