<strong>Plex</strong> Online Benefits<br />

Af<strong>for</strong>dable Cost<br />

<strong>Manufacturers</strong> face huge capital investments<br />

to upgrade legacy systems. <strong>Plex</strong><br />

Online is available over the Internet <strong>for</strong><br />

a monthly subscription fee, covered as<br />

an operating cost instead of a capital<br />

purchase.<br />

Precision Tracking<br />

Accurately track quality, inventory and<br />

shipping. Easily pinpoint quality problems,<br />

and address them early to<br />

eliminate costly rework and delays.<br />

Tight inventory management reduces<br />

inventory carrying costs and increases<br />

on-time delivery.<br />

The <strong>Plex</strong> Online <strong>Cloud</strong>, or Software as a Service (SaaS),<br />

<strong>ERP</strong> solution completely automates and integrates the<br />

flow of in<strong>for</strong>mation providing “a single version of the<br />

truth” that covers all functions.<br />

Streamlined Processes<br />

Engineering, manufacturing and quality<br />

teams all access the same data in real<br />

time. The system virtually eliminates<br />

the need <strong>for</strong> manual intervention to<br />

report or reconcile data.<br />

Pain-free<br />

Enhancements<br />

Enhancements are automatically made<br />

on an ongoing basis.<br />

<strong>Plex</strong> Online includes:<br />

• EDI<br />

• Procurement<br />

• Production<br />

• Inventory<br />

• Accounting<br />

• Shipping<br />

• APQP, PPAP<br />

Regulation, global competition, high<br />

material costs, warranty issues and<br />

more all require that suppliers have accurate,<br />

integrated and timely in<strong>for</strong>mation<br />

to make decisions. With <strong>Plex</strong><br />

Online, you'll truly understand your<br />

costs and production operation data at<br />

a granular level. The system is fully integrated<br />

so all core functions are<br />

seamlessly linked.

quality along with other requirements<br />

specific to your products.<br />

Warranty and Cost<br />

Management<br />

Manage warranty claims and minimize<br />

costs. Pinpoint the root causes of failures<br />

or problems so you can quarantine<br />

only the affected parts.<br />

Supply Chain Optimization<br />

Better manage quality by tracking supplier<br />

statuses, certification levels,<br />

problem histories, quality per<strong>for</strong>mance<br />

records and more. The system streamlines<br />

PPAP, APQP and other industry<br />

requirements <strong>for</strong> quality and supplier<br />

communications.<br />

Lean Manufacturing<br />

<strong>Plex</strong> Online supports lean processes.<br />

Its trademarked Scanban TM process<br />

virtual Kanban scheduling, electronic<br />

pull system, heijunka load levels and<br />

poka-yoke features. The system<br />

facilitates root cause analyses and<br />

corrective actions, including issue<br />

notifications and problem resolution<br />

reporting.<br />

OEM Compliance<br />

Easily meet OEM and supply chain labeling<br />

and EDI requirements. <strong>Plex</strong> Online<br />

implements new requirements in<br />

hours and days, instead of the months<br />

it takes most systems. Stay up to date<br />

on trading partner requirements.<br />

Engineering Change<br />

Requests (ECR) Management<br />

<strong>Plex</strong> Online tracks ECRs and easily<br />

computes impacts of changes on<br />

costs. Because it tracks everything related<br />

to ECRs, managers can re-quote<br />

only particular parts if needed.<br />
