Professional support for ERP, PPS, MES and CAQ systems
With respect to future-oriented themes such as ”Industry 4.0” — a professional Quality Management program also plays a decisive role. Then here too, simply collecting a wide range of data does not produce added-value — because only a detailed analysis that asks and answers the right questions is able to produce effective solutions. When production and quality data are fully integrated however, your business can proceed from the production and field data analysis to a self-regulating “early warning system” for production and quality processes — with many options for future process improvements.
Aside from current-status analyses and improvements to processes or systems, Ingenics also supports you with the planning of new IT networks — with experts to answer your questions related to ERP, PPS, MES and CAQ systems. Together with you, we clearly define your business’ specific needs and following a review of economic options we help you select and purchase your optimal IT systems.   

Finally, Ingenics also coordinates the integration of these IT systems within your supply chain. Here, Ingenics not only prepares the needed product and contract specifications — we also manage the bidding process and support you independent of the selected contractor throughout the final realization process.

Summary
Together with Ingenics, you can ensure a decisive competitive advantage — with an integrated, sustainable, Quality Management program designed specifically for your business’ networks and processes. As a result, you can increase both your business’ long-term success, as well as your customers’ satisfaction.
