New sophisticated inventory management system increases productivity by 20 percent

Paso Robles, CA (June 24, 2009) –

IQMS, a leader in the design and development of manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, today announced the release of its RackTruck platform solution. RackTruck is a sophisticated inventory management application that combines inventory scanning, forklift mounted monitors and stocking location mapping for manufacturers.
The IQMS Automation Group developed the RackTruck module as part of its continuing goal of working with existing IQMS customers to create greater efficiency and automation between shop-floor hardware and ERP software, resulting in leaner manufacturing operations. RackTruck utilizes fork-lift mounted monitors and scanners to provide capability that includes:

* Analyze multi-faceted inventory stocking or shipment requirements
* Determine which pallets should be pulled for a variety of orders
* Compare the requirements to the goods being made
* Combine supply and production review to determine stock location or cross docking instruction
* Determine what is left on the floor and prioritize the pulls and put-away for efficient utilization of manpower and equipment

“IQMS developed the unique RackTruck solution rapidly when we asked for help,” said Frank Sica, supply chain manager for Double H Plastics. “We’re now able to easily catch schedule changes to ensure docks are filled with the correct product. This has reduced the number of duplicate pulls to virtually zero, and we have improved our warehouse efficiency in moving products by 20 percent.”

Double H Plastics, Inc., which provides high quality plastic molding and extrusions for the food, paper, film and foil converting industry, has experienced great success operating the single-source EnterpriseIQ ERP platform for its growing manufacturing and molding needs. In 2007, Double H implemented EnterpriseIQ throughout its multiple locations.

“By creating a unique ERP solution, IQMS continues to serve the different needs of all its customers,” said Randy Flamm, president and CEO of IQMS. “With the implementation of RackTruck, Double H can now leverage 500 multiple functions across the shop floor, ranging from Spread Sheet Server for financials, to automated palletizers. While Double H is well known as a developer of innovative solutions and out-of-the-box thinking, it should also be recognized for adopting an agile, lean and integrated manufacturing development processes that will change the way companies conduct business.”
