Pertinence Suite is the first true end-to-end manufacturing operations solution developed with Operational Excellence in mind. The Suite supports all Lean, Six Sigma and other process initiatives implemented throughout the world. From simplified process planning and advanced predictive analysis to best-in-industry process execution and quality management, the Pertinence Suite helps customers reach their operational goals in a very short time.
The Suite is composed of different modules:
Basic Core Server - ICVEL
The Basic Core Server is the backbone of Pertinence Suite. In addition to housing the administrative functions, data storage and security for the entire suite, this transactional layer allows the Suite's modules to communicate with each other.
Process Planning - ICPP
Pertinence Suite's planning and process design tool quickly assembles all data necessary into planning templates or authoritative process documentation to be executed in a paperless environment. These templates include all supported objects such as work instructions, graphics, buyoffs, bill of materials and tooling. The module utilizes process libraries for the capture and re-use of best practices to minimize effort in authoring and maintaining templates.
Process Execution - ICPE
Developed for mission-critical advanced manufacturing, Pertinence Suite's Process Execution module puts you in control of the process. While providing real-time visibility of the shop floor, the system enforces complete procedural control of data collection, buy-offs, employee certification and a complete record of the as-built history in accordance with all industry and governmental regulations. Real time WIP status empowers shop floor operators to avoid bottlenecks, part shortages and other issues that affect a predictable process, consistent product quality or on-time delivery.
Emergent Process Management (EPM) - ICPM
EPM is a configurable process workflow engine that allows disposition of any unexpected product or process event. Anomalies, defects or nonconformances detected anywhere in the supply chain will launch alternative process flows that guide engineering, quality or shop floor personnel to quick resolution or corrective action. The system is also used outside the quality arena to track experimental parts, document approval or other non-standard processes. All data is recorded and archived, providing complete traceability to meet regulatory compliance.
