Metrofuser Implements Command Center Technology
Roselle NJ (May 2009) Laser printer parts manufacturer Metrofuser (www.metrofuser.com) has implemented Command Center Technology in its production department.
Command Center is a culmination of 4 years of development by teams within Metrofuser’s production and logistics departments. The technology is integrated into Metrofuser’s ERP software which feeds real-time production and logistics information to a 42" LCD Display located on the production floor providing Metrofuser's team leaders and the production manager with unprecedented visibility into operational statistics. The data feed will enable managers to quickly act on any issue which, in turn, will even further improve Metrofuser's efficiency and quality.
"The live data feed will allow better visibility to emulate what works throughout the production department and make corrections to what doesn't work quickly and efficiently," says Will DeMuth, Chief Operating Officer at Metrofuser, "This technology will bridge the gap between individual judgment and our existing process engineering. "
Metrofuser’s Command Center Technology scales across all departments providing real-time data views to technicians, sales and logistics personnel. "We believe the impact is going to be dramatic, "adds DeMuth, "the technology is intended to reach beyond the walls of production to everyone in the company."
