Quantum MES is an engineering/planning, asset management and quality control solution for U.S. aerospace & defense, medical device and other make-to-order manufacturers. Quantum can receive orders from third-party ERP systems, manage every step of workflow from engineering through execution and reduce wasted time and resources that negatively impact production. 

The Quantum system integrates with a customer’s existing ERP to provide tool/asset/part tracking, digital travelers, production planning, visual work instruction, performance analytics and quality enforcement. Implementing the system allows users to highlight shop floor issues in real-time and utilize alerts and planned order rerouting. 

Quantum has an estimated installation timeline of 1 day and utilizes a data migration engine to transition existing customer data out of legacy systems and into the Quantum platform.

CIMx Software has created discrete manufacturing software since 1996 and developed Quantum as a tool for both the SMB and MES markets.

Game Changer

My over all experience with quantum has been great. It has helped our production team become more efficient.

Pros

I am most impressed with Quantum's ability to be flexible with our production demands. We have custom screens for multiple areas. CimX has been great at allowing us to change and add features to all those screens. Quantum has allowed us to track problems, trends, exc... with ease. By using Quantum in our daily processes we have saved money and hours on research and defects. Quantum allows us to identify and focus in on our biggest problems. The company I work for has never had any software with this level of detail in tracking.

Cons

I have had to create my own reports by using different software. It is not friendly to those of us that do not have programming experience. It would be extremely helpful if Quantum could design a program to go with the product they already have. Quantum track everything you want it to so there should be an easy way pull the information. If it wasn't for my own employee's knowledge in programming, Quantum would be useless in getting reports.

it has been a good experience, some new with very benefits

The software is practical and easy to use once learned

Pros

I like the idea of take care of the earth, paperless and all the other benefits for our company and others

Cons

1. The quality of the drawings.
For some reason when we add drawings at the work centers, the high quality of drawings becomes poor, lines, dimensions, tolerances, does not read well, in some of cases it's necessary to see the original drawing (pdf)

The quality in drawings it's critical, for the quality of our products and better service for our costumers, the inspector take decisions all the time based in the specifications in drawing, when the drawing is not clear because of poor quality of drawings in CIMx screen, we have to take action and verify this issue, and this it's a lost time,

I was talking this with P. Torres Q.C. Manager and we both have the same opinion

2. DEFECTS Report

We cannot see an report where we have all the concentrated defects and shop orders by part number, if we want to analyse defects we have to search in another software the shop orders of some part number that we sent and after that, search order by order in CIMx software and check the defects, this take some time, for example: if the part number is continuous, several orders by month and we had to verify the defects from 6 months ago more or less

Very helpful software, you can use it everywhere.

Pros

On my opinion, you can access and modify the information very easy.
Also we can upload PDF files for been opened.

Cons

It is very important to have the correct information on all the Pop Up messages. sometimes it is a bad language translation or misunderstood.

It is easy to use but I think you have not described being able to use the whole screen.

Pros

It is easy to use but missing the whole screen would help us in inspection and testing.
We have been able to link with other programs.
We need to be able to see-print defect reports.

Cons

The area where the information is shown as drawings, process sheets, etc. is small, I would like to see it on the whole screen

easy to use and manage, more than anything, it's easy to understand. very visual

PAPERLES

Pros

that this software register every action that the user did. this is very helpful at the moment that the company has an audit and personal.

Cons

that the software is not compatible with a proper hardware. it's not the same running it the software in a computer than running it in a tablet. but I know that also this is depend of the qualities that my hardware has.
