A Digital Ecosystem for Job Shops

PROSHOP ERP will exhibit the ProShop ERP software platform at IMTS 2024, in booth 133027, its digital ecosystem that combines enterprise planning (ERP), manufacturing execution (MES), and quality management (QMS), developed by people with first-hand knowledge of the shop environment, to address the process and performance needs of job shops.

Integrating ERP, MES, and QMS seamlessly with each other and nearly every other manufacturing software, ProShop ERP is a paperless digital operating platform (DOP) that links every job shop department – from estimating projects to shipping. Engineered for small- to medium-sized manufacturing companies, ProShop can replace up to five software programs and simplify project management from start to finish.

ProShop ERP also will be featuring its Customer Ambassador program, with customers demonstrating the ProShop software.

President and co-founder Paul Van Metre will share insights as a panelist during the “Empowering Talent: New Approaches to Job Roles in Manufacturing” session of the Manufacturing Ally Rally, in the IMTS Student Summit on Wednesday, September 11, 2024, 11:00-12:00 pm CST.

Customized ERP modules help shops get organized for jobs and started in an effective way. The integrated MES system picks up details up by tracking time, tooling, fixtures, work cells, personnel, part programming information and more in real-time.

The QMS function features numerous modules that collect data from the ERP/MES systems and create reports reflecting preventative and corrective actions, generate audits, capturing every aspect of the manufacturing process for complete quality reporting.

Over 25 ProShop dashboards provide shops with a big picture view of the entire operation, identifying waste and ineffective procedures in one smart digital ecosystem. The benefits are many. Customers report set-up reductions of as much as 50 percent, and total labor savings of 25 percent or more. This means leaner production with the same number of employees, good news for those shops wishing to expand their capabilities and grow their shops without incurring extra costs and losing profits.

“The ProShop ERP/MES/QMS digital ecosystem helps shops grow their operation exponentially while remaining profitable,” according to Paul Van Metre. “It’s unnecessary to add more machines and more workers when beginning the expansion process when you have one smart paperless system that captures all of the details of your manufacturing processes, creating a big picture snapshot of the operation illustrating the good and the bad, and creating an environment for improvement and growth without impulsive spending.”
