LONDON, UK – 20th November 2014InfinityQS International, Inc., a global authority on real-time quality and Manufacturing Intelligence, announces that General Cable has improved visibility across its supply chain and decreased process variations from plant to plant by using the InfinityQS ProFicient platform.

General Cable is a global leader in the development, manufacturing, design and distribution of aluminum, copper and fiber-optic wire and cable products. To date, General Cable has deployed InfinityQS ProFicient on premise at 14 of its manufacturing locations.

As a growing company with a global manufacturing base, General Cable recognised the need for a solution that could monitor its manufacturing processes, standardise production data analytics and ensure product quality from plant to plant. Over the course of one year, General Cable used ProFicient across three production lines in two manufacturing plants. These lines yielded savings in raw material usage as the company used statistical process control (SPC) to drive out variations by analysing process capabilities and employing control charts.

Zack Tran, project manager, General Cable, said, “The implementation of InfinityQS ProFicient is creating visibility across our global manufacturing base and elevating the level of trust in our data. This work helps us to identify opportunities, improve process variations and control our raw material usage as we continue to uphold General Cable’s commitment to produce quality products for our customers.”

Michael Lyle, president and CEO, InfinityQS, said, “The significant improvements General Cable experienced exemplify how real-time Manufacturing Intelligence data can promote product quality across the global supply chain. General Cable uses ProFicient to strengthen its visibility and consistency. This success story is one of many that drive InfinityQS to continue developing innovative solutions that help global manufacturers deliver products of only the highest quality.”

InfinityQS ProFicient is a proven enterprise quality hub powered by a robust, centralised SPC software engine. With flexible deployment options, ProFicient enables global manufacturers to proactively monitor, analyse and report on Manufacturing Intelligence to improve quality, decrease costs and make smarter business decisions.
