LEXINGTON, MA -- Cookson Electronics will implement IBS America's quality management software at its 55 locations around the world, the software supplier said today.

According to IBS, Cookson purchased an enterprise license for IBS's QSi system. Cookson has used the  tools since 2001 to streamline document control and resolve customer concerns. With the purchase of the enterprise license, the software will now be used by 2,500 employees across multiple divisions.

"We chose to implement the QSi System worldwide in order to standardize quality systems," said Adam Gorski, IT global vice president, Cookson Electronics/AMG. "The enterprise system will help us with systems integration globally, and allow us to communicate changes in documentation across all of our locations and coordinate rapid, consistent responses to customer concerns."

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
