BAE Systems Leverages Solumina Software to Streamline Manufacturing Process

iBASEt – Foothill Ranch, Calif., December 18, 2012 — iBASEt’s Solumina suite of paperless shop floor tools is being deployed by BAE Systems Electronic Systems to integrate and standardize its work instructions as well as collect data electronically from the plant floor, including machine completions and parameter data.

BAE Systems initiated a project to harmonize its operations process management across its Electronic Systems manufacturing facilities, utilizing Solumina’s process planning, execution and quality tools. BAE Systems is leveraging capabilities built into Solumina to capture work-in-process (WIP) completions automatically and test data directly from machines, minimizing employee work disruptions and non-value adding tasks. Solumina also processes and validates this data in real time – just like it does with manually entered data – and alerts the appropriate teams when Six Sigma process rules or engineering requirements are violated.

“Implementing common factory processes across both our workforce and automated machines gives us a unique ability to control our process capabilities consistently and ensure the best product for our customers,” said Steve Rubenfeld, program manager at BAE Systems. “Solumina will help us maintain these auditable processes with minimal effort.”

BAE Systems selected iBASEt’s Solumina solution in February 2012 because of its extensive features and shop floor harmonization capabilities.

“Solumina has more than 3,700 out-of-the-box features tailored to complex, discrete industries, such as aerospace and medical devices, that customers leverage as they advance down the Lean/Six-Sigma path,” said Michel Gadbois, Vice President at iBASEt.
