Indianapolis, IN (Vocus) November 15, 2010 – Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced the general availability of Engenix v3.2.3 – Cimnet Systems’ engineering automation solution for PCB manufacturing and a new product, PCB Quote v1.0. These solutions are part of a comprehensive suite of solutions specifically designed for leading PCB manufactures to deliver continuous improvement, cost savings and increased customer satisfaction in pre-production processes.
The Cimnet Systems Pre-Production Suite includes:
- Engenix v3.2.3 provides PCB manufacturers tools for engineering automation, job management, communication and collaboration. It integrates CAM, shop floor, and business data, enabling the engineering team to engineer PCBs consistently, accurately and optimally. Version 3.2.3 has several new enhancements for advanced stack-up editing and drill tool processing with ERP integration.
- PCB Quote v1.0 provides a web-based PCB quotation solution, fully customizable from user screens to calculation methods, which enables PCB manufacturers to automate and manage their quotation process using a fully-customized and easy-to-use product. With integration to key PCB business and CAM systems, PCB Quote streamlines the process and reduces the time and effort required to generate quotes and convert them to orders.
Both of these solutions fully integrate with Cimnet Systems’ Paradigm ERP solution, creating a complete PCB business solution that enhances and automates process from quote to ship. Consona has also recently released its latest version of the Paradigm ERP solution, which features a number of enhancements specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s printed circuit board (PCB) industry, including a Plan by MRP (MRP Action List) function that generates and automates an action list of the required transactions that result after running MRP. Paradigm v3.7 also includes a non-nettable raw material processing feature that allows raw materials that are suspected of being defective to be categorized with special consideration with regards to an ERP transaction, so as to not be used in MRP reporting. Various usability and user interface (UI) enhancements were also incorporated in v3.7.
“We continue to listen to our customers’ feedback to deliver the best solutions in the industry throughout the entire PCB engineering and manufacturing processes,” said Frank O’Nell, vice president of product management for Consona’s ERP products. “This latest version release of Engenix, along with the releases of Paradigm and PCB Quote, is the perfect testament to that process and to our commitment to existing and future customers.”
