Case study illustrates how QAD quality management system automates processes for major injection molder
QAD Inc., a leading provider of enterprise software and services designed for global manufacturing companies, today announced that Cascade Engineering has implemented QAD QMS to support the company’s manufacturing operations.
The fully integrated quality management system saves time, improves productivity and ensures quality at the large-scale plastic injection molding manufacturer. A recently published case study shares the complete details of the implementation and its benefits.
Cascade Engineering’s legacy quality management software was cumbersome and unable to keep up with the needs of the enterprise. Because the company manufactures a wide variety of products for clients in multiple markets, the need was paramount to manage documentation with exacting specifications while meeting regulations and standards. By transitioning to QAD QMS, the company could meet one of its most important goals: to maintain customer satisfaction.
“Our quality management software is now better than ever at meeting our customers’ needs,” commented Cascade Engineering Senior Corporate Quality Engineer April Dines. “We are not only more effectively managing quality, we are also more proactively managing risk, an important consideration in the auto industry.”
“We developed a detailed project plan according to Cascade’s specific requirements to automate and improve document control, audits and Advanced Product Quality Planning,” said QAD Chief Marketing Officer Carter Lloyds. “Our aspiration is for all QAD customers to achieve the status of an Effective Enterprise where every business process is aligned with the company’s strategic goals. Cascade Engineering is a tremendous example of the benefits achieved by becoming an Effective Enterprise.”
