“Dramatic improvement to manufacturing and quality control and risk mitigation”

OverallHuge. Aside from being paperless for the most part, the ability to quickly find data is the greatest benefit. Next, I would point to the risk reduction for data loss or missing data, as product cannot proceed to subsequent workstations without proper closure. Imagine gathering and copying data from 20 paper records kept in 20 different boxes that were put in long term storage out of state several years ago. Now imagine keying those 20 part identifiers into Solumina for a query and having the data returned in seconds!
ProsOnce dialed in, it manages inputs and outputs efficiently while providing very fast access to records.
ConsI wish the font and icon size was customizable, and the green and red thumbs are tiny and too close together. I wish there were installation templates, or Best Utilization examples that would be useful for determining direction. As it is there is much left to the user, so the expertise of the user's configuration team is key to smooth deployment.

“In supporting a difficult process, Solumina delivers sound features and superior customer support.”

Overallconsistent manufacturing execution through standardized process plans. Quality of product improvements through integration of lean and SPC tools into the execution system.
ProsFar and away, the customer support in working to deliver a robust solution for Manufacturing Execution, Quality Assurance, and management of our Supplier Quality is the number one positive feature of working with iBASEt. They continue to work to address nuances generated by the ways we run our manufacturing environment, and have brought insights and recommendations for improvement that are 'outside' the scope of the software solution they provide.
ConsAll process planning is '0D' based - text oriented, with any 2D or 3D data that is desired for inclusion or that we want to use as the 'foundation' of process plans merely attachments to the text based plans. If I had to pick a second 'con', it is the inconsistent level of 'client to server' communication which negatively impacts remote users; iBASEt continually updates their code to make remote access better, but often as a result of OUR finding where excessive database calls are made from the client causing repeated 'round trips' to be driven across the WAN.

“Solumina is great - 10/10 would use again.”

ProsIn my limited experience (and in the opinion of the team that evaluated various options and selected Solumina as the best), Solumina provides a greater amount of low-cost flexibility and customizability, and G8 offers a much greater out-of-the-box functionality than other commercially available MES.
ConsIt seems like customizations funded by individual companies are leveraged by Solumina into the next version of the software, but it doesn't appear that there is any type of pricing break for the software update to the customer that funded the development of the additional functionality.

“We use this software in our daily business. It has a fantastic suite of capabilities.”

OverallManufacturing in a paperless environment.
ProsThe software itself is wonderful. I would highly recommend it to business that need an electronic Work Instructions software. it allows the user to custom build different applications from Quality management to Supplier Quality as a well as Audit. Easy to use for manufacturing and the user interface is incredible.
ConsMoving from previous versions is difficult and the migration process is cumbersome. Cusomter support is wonderful though.

“Pretty efficient for the most part. Little slow at times toward the end of the day.”

ProsEasy to use. Pulls up the information that I need rather quickly. Requested information or material is readily available and concise.
ConsThere are operations that upon completion, stay on the same operation instead of forwarding to the next operation and making it cumbersome to have to perform extra clicks. Can be somewhat time consuming when you have to do that all day. Drops the database from time to time when you're in the middle of inspecting a Part.

“learning the system takes times but then it is a great system”

OverallBeing able to track your employees work ethics help with being more efficient as a manager, having all information at your finger tips is a God send.
Prosby using this system traceability and accountability are at your finger tips. Being a manager this tool helps me with monitoring my employee.
Consthere is much to much wasted time navigating through the system, there is a lot of having to go back and forth to get done what you have to get done

“very flexible for customizations but lacking in training/demonstrating features”

ProsI'm able to customize UDVs to display more meaningful information and hide fields that are not used by the company. I can also substitute UDVs and create custom ones to have the exact data I want.
Consno visual training on software capabilities. There are written manuals but there should be a more visual training manual showing examples of the system and how it should operate

“The shop floor can learn to use the system in minutes, authoring plans takes much longer.”

OverallMuch better shop floor control than using paper work instructions.
ProsEasy to teach operators how to log on, find a work order and execute it. Standard text and glyph buttons for links are nice. The operators like and use them.
ConsIn G7, some weird ways to get to some menu items (i.e. not very intuitive). The G7 text editor is very basic. In standard text mode no spell checker makes for more revisions after the fact.

“Software is overall very capable, however, support is often slow and fixes are cumbersome”

ProsSoftware is very capable to handle a very large amount of manufacturing situations out of box. Traceability and control are very strong points in ensuring a high level of quality.
ConsInterfaces are convoluted and performance is not great. For more specialized industries or situations, developing solutions is expensive both to create and maintain, so outside processes or systems may have to be used.

OverallReal-time WIP Tracking, Data and Quality metrics
ProsAbility to track as built history and have Quality integrated into it. Great for complex lower volume assembly.
ConsCustom reporting can be more challenging. Exports are easy though. May not be as suitable for high volume serial controlled assemblies (too many entries required) especially if the flow is not continuous.

ProsThe ability to create work instructions using the different tools provided and exploring new ways to improve processes.
ConsGiven our location, the location of the database and the amount of users, the application can be slow. There are some features that need improvement such as the inspection planning and the ability to tie the inspection definition into the process work plans.

“Overall, Solumina has been a very positive system for our business since start-up. ”

ProsThe software is easy to use, both from the user side and the engineering development side. It was a great selling factor during our audits with the FAA.
ConsThe system processing is sometimes slow. Also, had a lot of bugs to work thru during start-up. Also, customer support has sometimes been lacking or not timely.

“Solumina MES is essential to our organization.”

ProsIt is easily customizable and user friendly. It works well in a large manufacturing environment. The company provides great customer support.
ConsIf you do a lot of customizations, it is hard to keep up with the latest version of the product. This is not a fault of the software, but something to keep in mind when implementing.

“MES adjusted for Costpoint”

OverallOur company converts Solumina's version of MES to be compatible with Deltek CostPoint and additionally runs it through Citrix Receiver to all our work stations. The multiple layers of connections leaves us with a lot of slow responses and forced logouts. This is likely not really an iBaseT issue, but it's one of the biggest things we struggle with. However, for the most part when it works it works quite well.
ProsThe software has very good visual interactive displays to present work instructions. The software is also very customizable.
ConsBeing able to batch work orders together is something we were told was going to be a functionality coming to the software, but successfully being able to use this function hasn't materialized yet.

“Our company has been a long time iBASEt customer. We use Solumina G5, G7, G8, and MES.”

ProsIt is used at our location to run the shop floor. Operations would not be able to make product without it. Solumina is our lifeblood.
ConsiBASEt's technology is stale and even in the latest versions, it is behind on the technology curve for Application and what it is developed on.

“A difficult but rewarding journey”

OverallLabor and time savings. The hardware is visible
ProsHaving data in one system has simplified certain aspects of the MFG floor. After getting up to speed it gets easier to understand
ConsTakes a while to learn, not very logical compared to other programs. Creating custom reports is difficult if not even possible. At times we have to adjust how our mfg floor functions to accommodate Solumina's limited abilities. Interfacing with machines and 2d bar codes is extremely time consuming and difficult - far from plug and play. Training is more or less thru trial and error, since everyone runs their production floors differently. Several Solumina quirks like pop open windows getting smaller in size or text disappears or arrows move for no reason, ETC. Nothing to make me mad just annoyed.

“It's a piece of work”

OverallWe are currently in the middle of an exhausting migration from an old version (G5) to new version (G8) and it's been a long, difficult, expensive effort. The company clearly has used Solumina MES successfully in many projects, so it may just be an issue with such a large jump in versioning. Caveat: I'm new to the product and may not have a full understanding of its value to the company and what competitors might provide.
ProsIt is very, very customizable. An impressive amount of development clearly went into the product.
ConsThe Solumina G8 browser client software looks like a relic from the Netscape era of UX, very sensitive to network interruption. Bolt-on code can leave something to be desired.

“Solumina MES fits the needs of my team and organization.”

ProsSolumina MES is a great application with many features and iBASEt can customize the application to support various business models and business processes.
ConsUser experience for Solumina MES is not intuitive. A learning curve is expected however working around the interface is cumbersome. As part of the implementation team, the customer service and consultants I worked with could be a little more responsive and helpful.

“Safety oversight in VAB while workers are using Solumina. Looking over their shoulders at Solumina.”

ProsI can review the procedure from anywhere other than where it's being used on floor. The document cannot be lost like paperwork where people forget to bring it back and loose it.
ConsWe lost internet connection and people had to wait until it came back up. It's slower to buy off than paper is.

“This product is extremely useful for our organization.”

OverallGreat Quality and loving the ability to manage add-ons.
ProsThe software captures the needs of production while maintaining good quality . We are currently using the quality module and looking to implement the MES soon.
ConsThe user interface is a bit complicated. New user will need considerable amount of time to understand how to operate the software.

“We are in the process of implementing Solumina. No actual use yet.”

OverallWe are in the process of implementing Solumina, so we have not realized any benefits yet. Although we expect to eliminate/reduce paper, increase traceability, and improve compliance.
ProsI like the capability that the software has to eliminate/reduce paper records for manufacturing and at the same time ensure that the process is followed, increasing compliance.
ConsOut of the box, Solumina is not designed for our industry. There is a lot of functionality/features/terminology that is standard in our industry that is not present in Solumina.

“This seminar gave me a much better understanding of Solumina.”

ProsI feel like this is one of the better ways when a company wants to move towards paperless programs. All of the information is stored digitally and can be easily accessible if stored on a network. Essentially convenience and making sure each step is done correctly as listed are what I like about it.
ConsThe problem with going digital is that if there happens to be an outside issue like a power outage or a form of hacking, there's vital information that could be put at risk. Consequences could include loss of data and possible external export of classified information.

“So far so good”

ProsGreat support from iBaset. Our implementation has been a challenge but so far it is going pretty well.
Consa lot of customizability required for our case. This isn't a reflection on the software but really just a nature of the business.
