Re: Spectrophotometer

That is a great & tough question. We have used X-Rite but now are using PCE. Neither are extremely difficult to setup, just make sure you have good color chips to use starting out. Hope this gives you a couple options to start with!

Re: Customer Service Title Vs What? Insight?

Good Morning! Sounds like something we have, or similar, to Production Control Specialist. Not sure if the word "Production" would help? It sounds like this isn't necessarily an entry level position, so if not maybe putting in the description something along the lines of "mid-level position"? Chuck ...

Re: Manufacturing Scheduling Software

Hello Jim!

Have you checked into IQMS? Wasn't sure what you guys currently use for your ERP (if you have anything setup) or if you guys just have a home grown system? IQMS has a Finite Scheduling module that may suit your needs. www.iqms.com

Re: Does anybody struggle with IQMS Kanbans?

Hey Jessica, Have you tried posting in the MyIQMS Forum on this? I would recommend looking there, and searching out other forums posts within MyIQMS to see if something is already out there. You probably have done this already, but have you tried contacting IQMS support? That may be what is bringing...

Re: Coping strategies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Shfit

Ashley, A couple of things we do, which I'm sure others are doing as well, is for a 2nd & 3rd shift pay premium for working those shifts. Also, we start our production week on Sunday night (3rd shift) and run through Friday night (2nd shift). That way, the 3rd shift team gets Friday & Saturday night...
