ToolTrack MES: Your High-Tech Assembly Solution

High-tech electronics manufacturers are always trying to balance assembly efficiency with component traceability. Being able to identify supplier trends and potentially compromised product is just as important as making sure the unit is built to specification. ToolTrack MES includes specialized functionality for dealing with complex hierarchies of sub-assemblies, super-assemblies and externally supplied components / consumables so your business can maintain complete traceability across every product and every unit.

Supplier Component Tracking

Take the example of utilizing two different suppliers for the same component in your flagship product. When it comes to the shopfloor components from the two suppliers should be treated the same (e.g. installed and tested the same way), but you must maintain traceability at the supplier batch or serial number level in order to understand variable cost as well as future failure rates based on those different suppliers. ToolTrack MES includes simple yet powerful material inventory functionality for supplier component batches as well as the ability to validate discrete unique serial numbers at every operation. Coupled with barcode scanners, your shopfloor can build confidently while ToolTrack MES ensures the right components are being consumed in the right place, at the right time. You'll never worry about ambiguously defined product quarantines again! 

Fully Documented Process Changes

ToolTrack MES also contains a Revision Control module which maintains the complete history for all Document, Supplier and Part Number records. Customizable approval flows make it easy to get the right sign-offs in a timely fashion, and changes are pushed to the shopfloor instantly. When a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is updated with new assembly instructions, there's no rush to print paper copies or a need to stop the line. Users will have immediate access to the newly released document with a single click, directly within the MES user interface. The shopfloor will always be using the most recently approved version of any document without having to remember the current revision number.

Why I-Track Software?

We provide a flexible solution that fits your operations and grows as you do. This enables your production supervisors, engineers and managers to adjust to the ever-changing manufacturing processes. ToolTrack MES was built by manufacturing industry experts - who won't pass your requirements to an offshore development team - who build your solution using a modular platform where customizing details is easy, quick and less expensive than any other product on the market. You always get unlimited users and your team can create as many custom reports as they need without knowing how to code! I-Track Software allows you to move away from costly legacy systems that lack the flexibility to adapt to changing business requirements, to a solution that gives you a competitive edge. 

How Does I-Track Software Do This?

We've taken a different approach to manufacturing execution (MES) and shopfloor control software. Most companies use a legacy architecture with rigid database and application layers which limits the ability for customization. These products often require full time in-house support and slow thin client programs that have to be constantly updated and won't run on mobile devices. But with ToolTrack MES, customization is driven by metadata rather than low level source code. Plus, ToolTrack MES utilizes a fast web-based user interface so you can access it anywhere, on any device. 

The flexible modeling and extensive configuration options in ToolTrack MES allow your manufacturing software to be quickly tailored without expensive programming. Multiple facilities can maintain a level of autonomy while leveraging a single MES solution. If custom program logic is needed, the new functionality can be implemented once and be immediately available to all users without disrupting operations or re-certifying the application.
