Digital Manufacturing Ecosystem


Adion Systems, developers of ProShop software, will host demonstrations of its comprehensive shop management program at IMTS 2018 in Chicago, September 10 - 15. The company’s booth in McCormick Place East is 121645. The company’s goal at the show is to debut a new generation of shop management software ideal for Industry 4.0 practitioners and convey how much more wide-ranging and beneficial ProShop is to small and medium sized manufacturers compared to ERP systems on the market today. One of the most significant differentiators about ProShop versus other systems is that ProShop offers an integrated, comprehensive set of modules for managing the shop’s typical ERP operations and also includes MES and QMS functions such as ISO-9000, AS9100, API and ISO 13485.


According to Van Metre, most conventional ERP systems are accounting-based that have very little functionality for managing and controlling the shop floor environment. Or, they are manufacturing monitoring type systems but still lack the full scope of information required in machining today.


In addition to the more typical ERP segments having to do with “front office” activities such as estimating, quoting and purchasing, ProShop also includes MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and QMS (Quality Management System) control, monitoring and collection capabilities. For instance, among the MES functionality is tracking machine utilization, cutting tool management, media-rich work instructions, part inspection data, and more, including integration with coordinate measuring machine data, which is unique to ProShop. Further, ProShop offers an integrated, comprehensive set of modules for managing the shop’s QMS such as ISO-9000, AS9100, API and ISO 13485. Among these include standards, equipment, users, training, audit reports, non-conformance reports, corrective actions and the like – all of the tasks required to be in compliance with the various quality systems in place at the worksite. The program may be hosted in the cloud or on site, depending on the customer’s preference.

We've used ProShop at our company for a couple years now. It's made a huge difference to us in terms of getting organized, increasing throughput, improving our quality and on-time delivery, and reducing a huge amount of stress for our employees. It is amazing how much of our business it handles - nearly everything. Bottom line is we've increased our throughput and profitability by around 20%. We'd never consider anything else.
