Slaying the Document Management Beast
Powerway Inc. Document Manager
Like nearly all automotive suppliers, Kent Manufacturing Co. of Grand Rapids, Michigan, faces the need to generate a considerable amount of manufacturing documentation to comply with the industry’s demanding quality standards. In the past, manually producing and maintaining these documents occupied a considerable amount of the company’s quality control staff’s time.
Kent Manufacturing has substantially reduced the amount of time spent on documentation by implementing a document management system specifically designed to assist in the creation, approval and distribution of manufacturing documents such as policy statements, procedures, work instructions and production part approval processes (PPAP) submissions.
Kent began working with Powerway Inc.’s document management solutions when the company first started the process of becoming registered to QS-9000 and ISO 9001.

The recent history of CMC Electronics could be a movie plot: how a newly hired file clerk made it to the heights of business success by shortening design cycles in the engineering department, increasing sales and, in the end, saving the company millions of dollars. In reality, it's not a file clerk, but software--SofTech's PLM file management system--that has achieved all this.
