Cost Reduction

Production and manufacturing teams are pressured to deliver greater customer value at lower prices. As a continuous challenge it is typically driven by unstructured development, sourcing and manufacturing processes.

To help better manage your team’s process and budget, BlueCherry® PLM provides integrated line planning, a focused design process, greater visibility into product decisions on expenses and tools for more effective vendor selections.

With BlueCherry Shop Floor Control (SFC), production and manufacturing managers are able to take corrective measures before production bottlenecks and quality issues escalate into more costly and time-consuming problems.

Plant Efficiency

Manufacturers face ever-increasing mandates to improve individual and overall plant productivity and efficiency in an effort to reduce throughput time and production costs. At the same time, they are challenged to improve quality and reduce work-in-process inventory levels.

BlueCherry Shop Floor Control provides operators with regular and consistent feedback to motivate and define the work pace needed to meet and exceed production goals. It also provides supervisors and managers with accurate and constant production and workflow information in real-time, in order to achieve the line balance, improve order tracking and on-time deliveries required to drive profits and customer satisfaction.

Product Quality

Poor product quality can significantly harm a company’s reputation, particularly for fashion and consumer products where the demands for greater value are most prominent. An inability to predict, identify and track quality issues can slow down your product development and manufacturing operations, resulting in high product costs and lost productivity.

BlueCherry Shop Floor Control quickly identifies and isolates quality problems ahead of time that can impact production schedules and costs, so that products can be delivered on-time and in line with specified quality standards.

BlueCherry PLM greatly improves product quality by providing a centralized library of information for in-house and global supply chain partners to ensure seamless real-time information flow, significantly reducing the risk of error.
