Minds Mechanical- IMI is a lightweight ERP system that focuses on helping companies keep track of their manufacturing process.
IMI is Minds Mechanical’s server-based, multi-tenant solution for simplifying the manufacturing-metrology lifecycle. Start making the most of your metrology data by leveraging inspection-based intelligence to increase efficiency and reduce unneeded costs in your manufacturing processes.
IMI is designed with ease-of-use in mind, extending manufacturing and metrology from the shop floor into the hands of anyone in your company, regardless of any specialized training. Upload all of your 2D or 3D models, machining files, and inspection data into IMI. Access your data any time, from any device, through IMI’s browser-based portal including an interactive CAD viewer. Avoid costly purchases of additional seats of CAD and metrology software just to view your data. IMI’s secure, centralized database ensures that your critical process information is always accessible to you and not hidden in personnel memory or email.
The multi-tenant structure of IMI automates essential process communications by providing instant model revisioning and inspection transparency to designated users throughout the supply chain. OEM companies have on-demand access to the most current information about part production, inspection results, and project timelines. OEM design changes are instantly propagated through IMI to any designated suppliers, eliminating the need for OEM personnel to email revisioning information and thus reducing the opportunity for communication gaps. For suppliers, IMI’s real-time notifications of changes to designs prevents making parts based on old revisions. IMI’s inspection package delivery options make sending inspection information a breeze, both to other IMI users and to supply chain partners outside of IMI.
With IMI, the inspection data you are already collecting can tell you so much more than the binary pass/fail of a single part. Inspections are linked to specific parts, assemblies, inspection personnel, manufacturing equipment, and metrology hardware to increase traceability through the manufacturing process and supply chain. IMI can aggregate inspection data from a variety of formats, allowing its analytics engine to perform statistical and predictive analysis of quality control data. The resulting business intelligence will reveal strengths and inefficiencies in your production processes and help you prevent expensive scrap.
IMI ensures you stay informed by providing alerts relating to manufacturing and metrology events. For example, users can receive alerts of design changes, percent of tolerance, manufacturing tolerance trends, and non-conforming parts.
With these features and more, IMI is a powerful, user-friendly tool for on-demand accessibility of manufacturing and metrology information, supply chain communication, and production process management.
