COSTA MESA, CA – Dave Cook, Chief Revenue Officer of nMetric, developer of patented real-time scheduling software for complex manufacturing environments, recently spoke at the American Aerospace & Defense Summit 2015. The event took place on Dec. 8th and 9th, 2015 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Cook’s presentation was titled, “Why is Manufacturing Software So Ridiculously Expensive, Hard to Use and Often Ineffective?” The talk addressed challenges created by the rapid rate of innovation and growth in the software solution market. Some of these challenges include the buyer’s dilemma in choosing the right software from the large array of options available and the responsibility of solution providers to rebuild trust.
As a potential solution, Cook advocated the concept of “Lean Apps” that address a narrow but significant gap in the solution market. To qualify as a Lean App, solutions must be better than the competition. But by staying narrow, these solutions can be less expensive and faster to deploy and therefore have reduced risk for buyers.
Headquartered in Costa Mesa, California, nMetric is the creator of patented nMetric dynamic scheduling software for complex manufacturing and project management environments. Driven by the company’s Smart Job® technology, the nMetric system uses real-time, closed-loop status reporting from Smart Job® software objects to provide full current and forward visibility into workload, orders and resource constraints. The system dynamically schedules multiple resources to tasks according to priority and continuously responds to frequent changes in demand and resource availability. nMetric software reports on activities as they occur, and allows fine-grain control over each task and job to accommodate real-world situations. This enhances schedule accuracy and keeps work moving as rapidly as possible, while avoiding expectations of unrealistic results. nMetric® 6.0 is a unique solution that allows organizations to achieve “Smarter scheduling®” and realize a higher level of efficiency, productivity, quality and reliability.
