Cleaveland/Price Lowers Inventory and Improves Customer Service With Preactor
Double digit year-to-year growth leading to all the typical problems of a fast-growth company. Increasing concern for Cleaveland/Price in meeting customer delivery date requirements, while maintaining an efficient workflow and acceptable levels of inventory. The key issue was more efficient sequencing of work orders in the shop.
The Preactor 400 APS was the solution of choice since multiple work orders are issued against multiple sales orders and “many to many” pegging would be required. P400 was integrated to Syspro as a time when no integrations existed. Cleaveland Price teamed with Quinn & Associates to develop a custom integration.
- Reassessment and improvements to the planning process
- Purchasing now fully integrated with fabrication
- Deeper understanding of the interdependency of operational functions
- Improvements in on-time delivery
“The true value of this system is not in any individual component, but in the complete integration of all systems and processes. The discipline created in the Preactor implementation, eliminates waste, and provides headlights into problems before they effect results. Preactor has assisted us in moving to the next level of our business growth cycle."
