Enclosure manufacturer CMP developed its VKS software to reduce defects and now it’s available to other manufacturers.
Zero defect manufacturing is a big promise to make, not that CMP Advanced Manufacturing Solutions is making such a pledge just yet, but the designer and manufacturer of large-sized metal enclosures is confident its Visual Knowledge System (VKS) software will help it get there.
CMP, founded in 1969, is a family business started by Hans Zimmermann. Now the company is helmed by Zimmermann’s son Steve, 52, who invested more than $5 million in VKS, a project implemented at its Chateauguay, Que. plant by his own son Ryan, 24. The system has helped CMP reduce production variables.
