The rise of computer systems transformed the industrial landscape, including the wood transformation industry. Thereby, it’s been using surprisingly advanced technologies for decades.
But this transformation was at the expense of people—they began being seen as a major source of mistakes. The fact is that system complexity and throughput became too complex to manage. And yet people are still held accountable for system performance, using surprisingly inadequate means.
We’ve known for a long time that people have an essential role to play in industrial systems. Nothing can trump the combination of a person’s instincts, experience, and knowledge. It’s this paradox that we want to resolve. We develop technologies and tools that make it possible for people to manage complex, high-throughput systems, empowering them to reach their targets. Our measurement tools enable better comprehension and foster an environment where everyone can collaborate toward the same goals.
This is what we do: equip people with the tools they need to better manage wood mills, no matter what they do.
And because we’re always looking to the future, we aspire to offer even more autonomy to the wood transformation industry so it can truly cruise at the speed of Industry 4.0.
Empower people to reach their full potential, enabling mills to better move the wood.
Develop and implement technologies and tools that offer meaningful insights to enhance operational control.
Founded in 2006, PMP SOLUTIONS develops systems that aggregate and contextualize data from multiple sources in the supply chain, and then present it in ways that users from all levels can leverage to enhance operational control and performance.
PMP SOLUTIONS, formed by François Léger , Ph.D. and wood transformation industry expert, is rich in intellectual wealth, giving us a unique ability to push the limits of innovation. The company has demonstrated a keen understanding of manufacturing systems and an impressive ability to structure production data. PMP SOLUTIONS markets the PMP TeamMate™ software suite which offers the wood transformation industry ways to improve its control over inventories, production, and planning. PMP TeamMate fosters collaboration and communication between all the mill stakeholders, enhancing performance.
PMP SOLUTIONS is an active member of the Engineering research on 4.0 industrial systems and the FORAC research consortiums. Being this involved in the R&D community has made it possible for PMP SOLUTIONS to contribute to the integration of new technologies in the manufacturing field.
