Plant floor production and inventory movement capture real-time via mobile devices optimizes inventory accuracy and lot traceability.
What It Does
Document Real Time Inventory Transactions
Maintain complete inventory accuracy and product movement from raw materials through finished goods via plant based PC or Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled scanners and Android tablets.
Execute Production Planning and Scheduling
Update demand requirements through Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP) as a basis for a digital whiteboard. The digital whiteboard allows for a visual display of scheduled work centers and parts and is managed with an easy drag and drop process.
Manage Non-conforming Material and Product
Identify and control nonconforming material to prevent unintended use or delivery. Use disposition types and reason codes for complete analysis, increasing customer satisfaction while improving your bottom line.
Track Comprehensive Production Analytics
Capture work center efficiencies, labor efficiencies, downtime and scrap that can be used to reduce waste and improve lead time.
Over the past seven years, our company has been working with AIM Vision. The software has provided us with a great solution for Repetitive Manufacturing and is very strong in providing a solid solution for EDI, Inventory Control, Production Posting, Purchasing, Shipping and Receiving. On the Accounting side the software talks seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics GP. Overall, we have been happy with the Support from AIM and the overall software. Great Group of people and they are based out of Michigan. Prior to AIM Vision, we used another ERP package for over 7-years and walked away from it; then moved over to AIM Vision.

I like the system's versatility because you can use it just to translate the EDI protocols or to ship all your finished goods and labeling system using Kanban systems; it will ensure the correct performance of your shipping process.

Before AIM we didn't really have inventory control, we were guessing at everything. Now with AIM Vision we have better inventory control, we know what we have, where it is, what warehouse it is in; I'd have to say it's about 97% accurate.
AIM has helped us because EDI, ASN and Bar Codes are seamlessly integrated into the software so we never have to have a special person handling it.
AIM Vision has been an excellent vehicle to streamline and our shipping processes and improve our efficiencies to shipping product and supporting our customers. So much so, that General Motors has recognized us as a Supplier of the Year recipient. We feel that the AIM Vision system has been instrumental in improving all facets of our business.
