Adams Automatic Achieves Improved Quality And Cost Reductions With Job Shop Management Software
Adams Automatic is now in its second generation of family leadership, and beginning its second decade as a Global Shop Solutions’ customer. Adams Automatic produces precision parts for a variety of industries including electronics, valve, medical, oil and gas, adhesives, defense, and air tools. They specialize in the short-run production of custom screw machine items, with one of the most highly regarded parts portfolios in the industry. In Global Shop Solutions’ affordable shop management software, Adams Automatic has found a trusted ERP software partner for their shop floor control.
Shop Management Software for Growth
“A big reason of our success,” says Edward Bond, president and CEO of Adams Automatic, has been what Global Shop Solutions has been able to do for us out in the shop. It’s made life easier for everyone around here, and that’s really made us more productive. We see Global Shop Solutions software growing into an even more powerful tool, and we see our own shop growing right along with it.”
From estimating to shipping, Global Shop Solutions shop management software has contributed to the sustained growth approach employed by Adams Automatic. This growth has meant an expansion of their workforce and CNC centers over the years, and it is testament to the synergy that can exist between a job shop and its ERP software system.
Seeing the Streamlining Results of Shop Management Software
It’s an absolute of manufacturing that quality, cost, and productivity are interrelated. Cost reduction through improved efficiency is the name of the game in manufacturing today. Bonds observes that with Global Shop Solutions ERP software system, taking control of these aspects is a much easier task. Global Shop Solutions provides more consistency in production routing, more continuity for operators when it comes to documentation, production scheduling, and inventory management. This, in turn, allows operators to manufacture the job according to specs with consistent quality the first time through — and, with an on-time delivery rate of over 99%.
The ERP Benefits: On-Time Delivery and Sustained Success
“We’re a materials-driven industry and a short-run CNC turning shop,” states Bonds, “so it’s important to stay on top of our inventory. We use Global Shop Solutions for automated purchasing. The Automated Purchasing module in Global Shop Solutions is one of the main reasons we’ve been able to improve our on-time delivery so much.”
Success in manufacturing is an increasingly hard commodity to find. However, Bonds and Adams Automatic have worked hard over the decades to touch and sustain success. “Global Shop Solutions has definitely helped us be more successful,” concludes Bonds. “I think it’s done a very nice job for us over the last 10 years or so, and I can only say that we are thoroughly pleased with it.”
