Concept 2 Market, Inc. Announces Implementation of Manufacturing Operations Software


Pompano Beach, FL – May 3, 2011: The recently completed implementation of Aegis Manufacturing Operations Software allows Concept 2 Market, Inc. (C2M) to improve efficiencies and quality by streamlining and controlling process planning and launch, process tracking and control, as well as quality and test management. 

“Factory information visibility and process-wide control is core to competitiveness.  We utilize technology to connect many of our factory processes”, said Todd Kirkeeng, President of C2M.

The software acts like a bridge from Engineering to Manufacturing by readying products for launch.  We support virtually every CAD type, which eases the transfer of data from one machine to the next.  This automation provides revision control at the operator’s workstation, which greatly reduces the risk of using an incorrect revision.  This technology is keeping the environment in mind through a paperless system, which is a step towards one of C2M’s corporate objectives.

Improving customer service!  The software implementation allows us to track sales orders through out the process, providing extensive details regarding WIP in real time. 


, For customers we are pleased to say tare pleased to Determining where all the work orders are located throughout the factory is now a matter of accessing real-time information. Customer service often depends on having the information they need when they need it. Aegis allows C2M to track WIP progress and provide predictive job completion times, which is important to C2M’s customers.

Quality has to be a “given” in any manufacturing process. The Aegis software provides C2M with the required information to build the product correctly and to verify the quality while the work is still in process so any corrections can be made.

The Aegis software collects data and puts it into reports, visualizations, and real-time dashboards that are used by C2M to constantly improve quality and efficiency. Traceability of every product is also achieved and allows failures and rejections to be tracked and eliminated before they become an issue for the customer.

C2M’s CEO and owner, Maria Kirkeeng, summed it up the best when she said, “We want to be the best of the best, which is why we’ve made this investment in technology. We’re taking the necessary steps to constantly improve our processes and efficiency so we can provide our customers with a superior product.”
