ITAMCO QuPiD

Tracking the Production Process

QuPiD (Quality Pricing for Deliverables) is custom-made software developed by our in-house Indiana developers to more efficiently monitor the production process and store the recorded information on a blockchain.

In 2010, we was searching for a way to more efficiently monitor the production process. How long did it take to manufacture one part? How long did each process take? We needed a way to track these things and make production as productive and efficient as possible.

QuPiD was born as a way to better track the way we manufacture, and make our production process as productive and efficient as possible.

QiPiD - Tracking ITAMCO's Production Process

Using the mobile app, we can now track each part that they make from beginning to completion.

Each ITAMCO employee installs QuPiD on their mobile device. When they receive a part they sign into a job via QuPiD. When they complete their operation of the Manufacturing Order (MO), they sign out of that job.

Now we can track each part from beginning to completion. Not only that, but we can deduce how much energy each part of the process took, how long it took worker A versus worker B, and overall the average of how long it took each MO. We now can give quotes to potential customers with unprecedented accuracy.

We have also gone a step further to adhere to the ISO9001:2015 standard and updated QuPiD to write all transactions to an immutable blockchain using the SIMBA Chain Platform. QuPiD can now verify every transaction that is uploaded. The data submitted to the blockchain cannot be deleted or edited, and it can always be traced back to the original transaction author.

QuPid’s transaction screen also allows users to enter the Manufacturing Operations via the QR reader.

The goal was to efficiently track each part we manufacture and SIMBA Chain was a key partner in making that happen.

QuPiD and SIMBA Chain now gives ITAMCO a verified and accurate record of transactions, and stores thousands of individual transactions a day.
