A&D Power Connector Manufacturer Selects IQMS

IQMS, a manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution system (MES) software provider for the repetitive, process, and discrete industries (automotive, medical, packaging, consumer goods, etc.), announced that Rebling Power Connectors has selected IQMS EnterpriseIQ as its new unified manufacturing solution. For more than four decades, Rebling Power Connectors has been manufacturing high current battery receptacles and disconnectors for the aviation sector and defense land vehicles, in addition to its custom thermoplastic and thermoset moldings for the medical, consumer products, and automotive industries.



In spite of its vast engineering experience, the company was struggling with too many disconnected and often outdated software systems. Using a mishmash of Microsoft Access database, an obsolete materials requirements planning (MRP) system, and numerous spreadsheets to track quality, Rebling Power Connectors was arduously entering production data multiple times across its disparate systems to comply with strict ISO 9001, AS9100, and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) requirements. Thus, in addition to ERP and MES capabilities, Rebling Power Connectors plans to take advantage of EnterpriseIQ’s document control and quality process management tools, wireless warehouse management and inventory control, and the RealTime Production Monitoring system.

Some of the  competing systems that the company also evaluated (e.g., Infor Visual and Exact MAX) have narrower unified footprints, and they treat some specific requirements such as handling family molds for plastics with workarounds. In contrast, IQMS offers these as built-in industry-specific features.
