Tampa, FL, United States, 2009/11/20 - USC Consulting Group (USCCG) has teamed up with Shoplogix™, to offer manufacturers a faster means of optimizing the performance of their plants using business intelligence collected and displayed at the machine level.
In its latest bid to help improve production efficiencies for its clients, USC Consulting Group (USCCG) has teamed up with Shoplogix™, the world's leading developer of real-time performance management solutions, to offer manufacturers a faster means of optimizing the performance of their plants using business intelligence collected and displayed at the machine level.
"Manually recorded production data is inherently unreliable, often untimely, and frequently misleading," says Shoplogix president Martin Ambrose, "not because of any malicious intent on the part of the operator, but simply due to the fact it is based on a perception of what has transpired which is always at odds with what actually did occur. The fact is that timely, accurate data, placed in the proper hands, drives fact-based decisions and, subsequently, positive outcomes."
Over the years USCCG has repeatedly looked for and found appropriate ways to build technology into its offerings, initially using it as an enabler and then a sustainer of continuous improvement. "By combining world class operations management techniques with real-time production data collected by Shoplogix' Plantnode® solution and displayed via our LINCS® business intelligence and tracking application, we're able to drive immediate productivity and efficiency improvements, often of a surprising magnitude. And by institutionalizing the proactive behavior the data encourages, we're able to further leverage the technology and sustain improvement over long periods of time," said Jim Ostrosky, USCCG's president for product development and technology.
Shoplogix' technology provides the technical foundation for USCCG's feasibility studies which serve to identify opportunities for operational and financial improvement, such as improving yield, trimming operating expenses and increasing the return on assets. "With our new partnership, manufacturing clients can now get a more realistic picture of productivity for their whole plant and make better informed decisions," says Ostrosky. "As a result, our clients will be more efficient, more competitive and more profitable."
