A discussion and demo of 1factory’s Supplier Management system and a software. This is an opportunity to see a state of the art tool for managing the supply base.

The Problem We Solve:
Manufacturers are facing increasing levels of product and supply chain complexity (increasing number of products/variants, parts, suppliers and supply chain tiers). Unfortunately, manufacturing and supply chain quality control  processes have remained paper and spreadsheet based, and are now inadequate for the increased complexity. Consequences include rework, wasted capacity, poor product performance & reliability, and reputation damaging recalls.
The 1factory Solution:

At 1factory ( , we’ve built powerful yet easy-to-use software for manufacturing and supply chain quality control1factor y makes it easy to collect and analyze feature-level or parameter-level data (dimensional measurements, test results etc) for thousands of parts and product-features, from within your factory and across your supply chain. With 1factory, manufacturers can improve both quality and productivity. Our customers have reported > 50% reductions in inspection and reporting cycle-times, and > 80% reductions in the number of defects.

We currently support a wide-range of manufacturers in the aerospace, medical device, automotive, food, and precision optics industries. Here’s a link to customer reviews posted by our customers on Capterra (a Gartner company): 1factory reviews.
