ICM boosts the overall efficiency of its factories thanks to Mapex
Last update: January 2022
From paper to a fully automated system
Mapex’s arrival at ICM came hand in hand with three major challenges: adapting to the new digital transformation landscape of industrial companies; evolving towards continuous improvement and addressing specific company needs, such as, eliminating non-value-added tasks, and minimizing paper-management in the factory.
ICM’s first contact with Mapex was at an industrial sector fair. After learning about the tool’s potential at another manufacturer’s facilities, the company chose the platform, due to its flexibility and usability.
Fast implementation with short-term results
Once the pilot was approved, the company only waited a few days to run Mapex in its entire Aranjuez production plant and see the first results. In 2018, when ICM merged with Electrónica Aranjuez, the company decided to go further and deploy the Production and Quality modules, together with the integration of the MES with the ERP, in its Illescas factory.
