Without reservation, I would highly recommend SYSPRO MOM to any company seeking to automate their scheduling and manufacturing processes. The benefits of readily available access to all facets of scheduling and production information, combined with a system that is operator friendly and easy to use, result in significant time and efficiency savings while also providing a system that supports any company’s continuous improvement efforts.
– Ed Hanrahan, Vice-President of Operations, Bodypoint
Controlling costs and improving performance with MOM
Bodypoint designs and manufactures postural supports that improve safety, comfort, function and independence for wheelchair users. Since 1991, Bodypoint has been manufacturing in Seattle, Washington, and its Quality Management System has been certified compliant with ISO 9001:2015. The company tests all its products – available in more than 40 countries – to all applicable ISO, EN and ANSI/RESNA standards for safety and durability.
The Business Challenge
Although Bodypoint already used SYSPRO for financial and manufacturing management, a lack of accurate capacity data, manual manufacturing processes and difficulties with tracking minimums and maximums led to inefficiencies. From an overall perspective, the manual system was cumbersome and costly.
Bodypoint implemented the SYSPRO Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solution to automate the planning process, eliminate paper-based work orders and gain the ability to track each job through the system.
The system went live in January 2021 and the company’s initial goals for scheduling, costing and capacity planning were achieved in less than eight months. SYSPRO MOM has helped improve Bodypoint’s production and commercial performance.
