Case Studies - Furniture Manufacturer

WMSProblem

This Leading Furniture Manufacturer with over 15 manufacturing facilities and service centers, needed to upgrade their data collection system. Their Legacy equipment used proprietary communications and a programming language that was no longer supported. They asked Miles Technologies to determine if new technology would offer greater hardware flexibility and be easier to support.

Solution

Miles recommended that they standardize on a programming language that was "open" and could be used with a variety of equipment. They recommended standardizing on the GTL Programming Toolkit which offered easy integration without re-programming each manufactures data collection equipment.
