Datatrack Software Helps Airline Supplier Maintain Its Leading Position

PSL’s Datatrack software is especially suited to batch assembly and manufacturing environments in a wide range of industrial sectors and is not just limited to the traditional sub-contract engineering sector. EEMU of New Haw in Surrey manufactures and assembles high quality aircraft products for leading world airlines and relies heavily on PSL Datatrack to run its business administration and production functions.

Seat tables and panels, door louvres and other products such as orchid holders are made from a variety of materials including wood, plastics and alloys. It is not uncommon for products to incorporate high value materials such as gold. These find their way into first class and business class cabins.

EEMU has grown by reputation for its high quality, manufacturing and assembly processes as well as its consistent ability to deliver products on time, every time. From initial enquiry through to final delivery, the company’s business has benefitted from the investment in PSL Datatrack software.

PSL Datatrack helps aerospace supplier EEMUIt also helps the company to maintain its critical ISO QAR Quality Assurance Certification and Approved Supplier status with customers (including Contour).

Andy Allan, Managing Director of EEMU, had previous experience of PSL Datatrack in a sub-contract engineering environment through Linear Precision, an associated EEMU company. He recognised that it could be effectively applied with EEMU: “As we put together components and services from outside suppliers to create finished products, this process also needs to be carefully project managed from start to finish. As an aerospace supplier, we needed a software package that would do this for us with minimal effort from ourselves so that we can devote time to running and expanding the EEMU business successfully.”

PSL Datatrack’s benefits to EEMU quickly became apparent as it has the ability to cope with both the repeat work and the many customised projects that EEMU undertakes. The PSL Datatrack modules employed by EEMU provide complete control of the supply, manufacturing and assembly processes. The system produces a process layout (job sheet) and all parts and services bought in are recorded by PSL Datatrack. In the case of high specification door louvres, this can cover the supply of frame parts, extrusions, bonding material, paint and services from outside suppliers. All the suppliers’ details, costs and quantities are also recorded on PSL Datatrack. A works order is raised to cover the individual aspects of the manufacturing and assembly process. The GRN (Goods Received Notes) generates unique batch numbers which remain with the job until despatch, thereby providing full traceability.

PSL Datatrack records all historic information so that in the event of a repeat order all the details including costs and selling prices can be reviewed. Some products, such as hinges for galley doors, may have changes in specification requested and details of any customised components are recorded. PSL Datatrack will then indicate any changes in costs so that at the invoicing stage selling prices can be adjusted accordingly.

PSL Datatrack has effectively replaced all manual recording of the quotation to invoicing process, saving EEMU time on administration. The company can recall the history of any order and all associated costs including hourly rate tracking. No job can be overlooked so that there is no risk of failure to invoice a completed job. All customer invoice paperwork generated by PSL Datatrack gives EEMU a well deserved highly professional image.

“PSL Datatrack is indispensible to EEMU. The system lends itself to whatever we are manufacturing – there are a series of processes from buying-in to delivery that every EEMU product goes through and PSL Datatrack controls them all. I would recommend it to any company looking for a business administration system that provides complete control and allows them to get on with other critical work.” says Andy Allan.
