Solution to accelerate New Product Introduction and digital transformation across complex, highly engineered manufacturing operations

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. – July 30, 2020 iBase-t, a leading provider of manufacturing, quality and MRO solutions, announced today that D&K Engineering, an expert in providing product design and contract manufacturing services for high-innovation content, hardware-based products and equipment, is implementing iBase-t’s medical device manufacturing execution and quality solution. iBase-t will provide the necessary infrastructure to digitalize D&K Engineering’s shop floor operations followed by future easing of supplier quality management.

As a medical device manufacturer, D&K is tasked with quickly ramping up new, complex engineering and production processes within a highly regulated environment. Process and documentation must be strictly adhered to assure quality and compliance. The company must also quickly and easily pivot to new or modified production processes, as needed. 

“We are impressed with iBase-t’s pre-configured solution, which has been instrumental in our digital transformation strategy. The complexity and cost of paper-based processes was just too high,” said Jason Guhse, Associate Director of Information Systems, D&K Engineering. “iBase-t’s solution lets us quickly apply engineering changes and design updates during New Product Introduction, unlocking greater value to our customers.”

“D&K Engineering represents an important proof-point that iBase-t’s product, software, and services solution is a great fit beyond our roots in the aerospace and defense industry,” said Naveen Poonian, Chief Executive Officer of iBase-t. “Our complex discrete manufacturing, quality, and sustainment industry knowledge combined with our out-of-the-box solution helps us to better serve this critical and growing industry.”
