IntraStage’s latest product enhancements, capabilities and open architecture are delivering the promise of digital transformation for complex electronics manufacturers.
2018 was a transformative year for IntraStage and our customers. Over the years, customer driven continuous development of the BlackBelt Manufacturing suite of products has created a comprehensive Quality 4.0 platform, built on the industry leading test data management solution. Our customers are now engaging us for broader product innovations and integrations to maximize profitability and sustainability in the era of Industry 4.0.
These innovations brings our customers new business value and business outcomes by adding new features which are rolled up in Version 6.1.3. Some of these features and values include:
And that is just the beginning. New technologies are poised to meet the escalating demand for the digital transformation and are driving new developments at IntraStage.
We’re excited about 2019 and what we have in store for BlackBelt 7.0, Failure Analysis, Returns Analysis, Paperless Forms, and more. IntraStage Cloud customers will be the first to benefit from these enhancements due to our rapid release schedule.
We read a fascinating and timely column in Smart Industry last week by Mark Reisig (Dissolving silos with a digital thread). A summary of the column is that Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems are being transformed by the digital revolution, and that the digital thread which is now tantalizingly close to availability is providing new connections, visibility and collaboration. However, he writes that organizations are facing overwhelming data silos and disconnected information that are preventing organizations from achieving a data-driven advantage.
Mr. Reisig says that the organizations that will reap the most benefits of PLM systems will need an open, flexible and upgradable technology, and will need to connect users to the right data from across the product lifecycle.
Here at IntraStage, we enthusiastically endorse using our open architecture solution to help our customers to achieve their product digital thread by freeing performance data from existing silos. Once data is available in a flexible, dynamic data model to users and experts from across an organization, new insight and collaboration will result in better processes and improved product quality.
Complex electronics manufacturers that are achieving the digital thread recognize that the industry-leading solution for enabling the flow of critical performance data from throughout their highly engineered product lifecycle. Gathering this data throughout systems, departments (NPI, R&D, Manufacturing, Operations, RMA, and Quality, to name a few) unlocks new value, efficiency, and visibility. Contact us for a demo to learn more about how we can help dissolve your data silos and accelerate your Factory of the Future.
