Seguin, Texas – Quad Infotech added another mill to the QMOS family as CMC in Seguin, Texas went live in late October.  This was the culmination of the project that began in July, as CMC-TX became the first mill to implement the new QMOS version 10.5.  Included in this package are some new and easy-to-manage scheduling tools for the Roll and Guide Shops, and new functionality dealing with adding bundles directly into inventory using a hand-held scanner.

Using QMOS, CMC Texas will be able to better manage and plan their production as well as gaining full visibility into all critical KPIs.  QMOS will allow CMC Texas to not only manage production better throughout the mill but also streamline the information exchange with CMCs corporate enterprise SAP system.

Standardization of various processes as well as reports is another area where CMC Texas will look into gain tremendously from their new QMOS implementation.

The next phase of this project consists of interfacing with CMC’s corporate SAP system.
