Leading Business Magazine Presents "100 Great Supply Chain Projects"
Fairfax, Va. – May 30, 2012 – InfinityQS International, Inc., the leading provider of real-time quality control software solutions, today announced its inclusion in the 2012 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 (SDCE 100). InfinityQS was selected based on a successful quality management system implementation that helped save a leading snack food manufacturer more than $1 million in the first year by increasing product quality consistency and reducing product waste.
The SDCE 100 highlights supply chain transformation projects that have had a significant impact on the companies going through the implementations. InfinityQS’ award-winning project involved implementing its ProFicient platform to give its client the ability to utilize statistical process control (SPC) decision-making rules to improve process quality, reduce waste, and maintain consistency in the quality of the final product. As a result, the manufacturer realized significant cost-savings, experienced a complete return on investment in just a few months, and has seen a 30-percent reduction in customer complaints.
"Our goal with this year's '100' is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that are delivering bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain," said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "The projects featured in the '100' article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations."
Michael Lyle, president and CEO of InfinityQS, said, "It is an honor to again be included in the prestigious SDCE 100. We work very closely with all our clients to find new and innovative ways to improve their manufacturing processes. For this food manufacturer, it was vital to find a way to monitor processes in real time to adjust for variations in quality. As a core function of our quality management platform, real-time monitoring and in-depth data analysis were easily integrated into the established quality processes on the plant floor to achieve significant, rapid return on investment and unparalleled improvements in product quality."
InfinityQS’ real-time statistical process control (SPC) platform, ProFicient, and its cloud-based deployment option, ProFicient on Demand, enable manufacturers to improve quality processes by closely monitoring production and testing processes in real time, creating full visibility and actionable insight into quality operations at any point across the supply chain. Many of the world’s leading manufacturers have standardized on this proven, powerful and intelligent real-time SPC platform to monitor quality benchmarks, provide full traceability across the supply chain, and meet regulatory compliance and customer reporting requirements.
Through an online submission process, Supply & Demand Chain Executive collected information on supply chain transformation projects, including information on the objectives, scope, timeline and results of the project. The submissions were evaluated by the magazine's editorial staff primarily based on: ambitiousness/scope of the project; creative application of technologies/solutions/services used; extent of the business results/impact; and clarity of submission. The complete listing of the 2012 SDCE 100 award winners are is available online, while extended coverage will appear in the June 2012 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine and online thereafter.
