Parsec (TrakSYS) Case Studies and Videos
Grupo Farmasierra needed real-time operations management software that worked with the existing infrastructure and could be configured across the manufacturing value stream. For this, Farmasierra turned to Parsec for TrakSYS™ MES, to address the following:
- Apply DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, control) principals across disparate sources throughout the value stream
- Enhance employee engagement in plant floor operations
- Comply with industry regulations and auditinh
PREMIER System Integrators
Integrator and manufacturer
The TrakSYS comprehensive manufacturing management and operator interface is integrated with PREMIER’s ERP and payroll system. All of PREMIER’s panels go through extensive quality tests and require order management which entails creating and printing setup sheets, labels, and quality documentation, groupings for assembly efficiency, and other administrative tasks. Every panel order is tracked through the shop, including labor for each assembly step, all inspections, and any UL serialization required by PREMIER’s customers.
“With the implementation of TrakSYS, our technicians spend less time keeping track of paperwork, and more time pushing orders out the door.” - Chandler Odom, Manufacturing Operations Coordinator

Manufacturing and distillation of liquors
TrakSYS was the ideal platform when it came to meeting the initial needs of capturing OEE and reducing the paper footprint on the Jack Daniel's bottling lines. As a united MOM platform, TrakSYS offered the Jack Daniel’s team a comprehensive set of solutions that would not only meet their operational goals, but also provide solutions that promoted operator freqquency and engagement. Once TrakSYS was implemented, the Jack Daniel’s team rolled out the platform to a pilot line, then set about commissioning the rest of the bottling lines onsite.
“We never got that warm fuzzy feeling like “THIS IS IT” with any of the systems except one: TrakSYS.” - Jennifer Crabtree, Maintenance Manager
Beverage Manufacturing Industry
“Utilizing the maintenance components of TrakSYS has enabled our teams to get a better hold on predictive and preventative maintenance intervals, tasks and practices. As our TrakSYS implementation evolves, we plan on incorporating our maintenance solution into other areas of production to help facilitate interdepartmental communication and production optimization.” - Scott McDaniel, Manager of Information Systems
