Today, several companies offer "turnkey" solutions supporting cable management processes through IT applications networked over the company’s LAN. These solutions, which are often complex in structure and involve quite heavy investment, are designed for general purposes and cover most of the central functions common to various industries.
However, for the manufacturers of electrical cables and wires, the situation is particular as most of the data to be processed are not related to quantities, but to the cable length, and this specific type of data cannot be handled by any ERP. This means that for electrical cable and wire manufacturing, specialized functional modules are required to complete the quality management toolbox.
AESA Cortaillod has worked in close partnership with companies specialized in cable manufacturing field to offer professional, integrated IT solutions. The CIQ provides a unique, highly effective solution which can be interfaced with the most commonly used ERP or MES, for example. This is a clear step towards achieving a fully-integrated cable management system.
