Web-based control of just-in-time transactions between multiple facilities and subsidiaries of the same company is provided by a new Intercompany Transaction (ICT) software module for the EnterpriseIQ enterprise resource planning (ERP) system from IQMS, Paso Robles, Calif. The drive for leaner manufacturing is more difficult for multi-plant firms, says Randy Flamm, president and founder of IQMS, "because inefficiencies are often amplified by the number of locations. Enterprise IQ and the ICT module allow multi-plant companies to achieve unified scheduling and distribution across all facilities. The benefit is greater efficiency in areas such as production, transportation, and inventory control." The module's eKanban function permits setting "trigger points" for inventories of items used at one location and supplied by another. When the trigger quantity is crossed, a sales order is generated automatically.
