Industry Leading Innovation
One of the truly innovative and unique systems in place at CMG is the Machining Scheduling Center, also known as the Command and Control Center. This station displays live data on every job and every machine or work center within our facilities. The “smart tags” provide all pertinent information about a job, from the number of parts completed, delivery dates, shipping information, notes from previous batches, tools required, and even who’s currently running the operation.
Real-Time Data Analysis
This one stop shop allows for scheduling, managing capacity, trouble-shooting, and a quick overview of up-to-date information about all manufacturing activities at CMG. The Command and Control Center is a SQL-based system developed out of necessity by our own talent and innovation. Due to our flexibility and scope of operations as a contract manufacturer, we often need software or systems that are very unique, leading us to develop our own custom tools to suit our needs.
Efficient and Effective Communication
As seen during a virtual tour of our facilities, we also have a Command and Control Center at our assembly plant, formally known as the Assembly Scheduling Center. It provides all the same functionality as the station used at our machining plant. In fact, due to the level of coordination and collaboration between our two facilities, both the Assembly and Machining Scheduling Centers display live information from BOTH locations to ensure efficient planning and communication, allowing CMG to continue operating as a world-class, lean manufacturer.
