"The software being presented by the other vendor just didn't work efficiently.  Mitem View retrieved all the data in under 10 seconds while the other product was taking up to 45 seconds to pull back only one-fifth of the information (that MitemView was doing), and with a lot more code, thousands of more lines of code."

Manufacturing companies world-wide rely on legacy systems. While these systems are highly reliable, they can hold important data hostage because it is difficult to connect and integrate these systems with one another, and with other systems that utilize new technologies and standards.

With an obvious need for improving efficiency in order to reduce operating costs and increase competitiveness, manufacturing organizations are faced with the tough choice of either replacing these systems that run 24/7, or extending and enhancing them to provide more efficient workflow for end users.

MitemView allows manufacturing organizations the ability to enhance, extend and integrate their legacy systems without the costly and disruptive process of replacing them.

The following case studies and articles from the heart of the manufacturing world reveal the many benefits of using MITEM to non-invasively integrate legacy systems.

Selected Projects:

Vought Aircraft

Vought Aircraft Industries, Inc. is the world's largest independent supplier of aero structures. Headquartered in Dallas, the company provides wings, fuselage subassemblies, thrust reversers and other components for prime manufacturers of aircraft. Vought has more than 5,000 employees and annual sales that exceed $1 billion. The Company has operations in Texas, California, Florida, and Georgia.

Vought selected MitemView to create greater efficiencies in process planning by reducing the number of screens a planner had to navigate, providing drop-down tables that define various codes, implementing rules-based selection of data codes, and allowing access to other systems without exiting the planning system.

PPG Industries

PPG Industries is a $7 billion supplier and manufacturer of specialty and flat glass products, fiber glass, coatings and industrial resins, and specialty chemicals for the automotive, home and industrial markets.

MITEM developed a user-friendly, Windows-based interface for PPG's legacy systems that allows all requisitions and invoices from remote plant sites to be processed electronically.

Bayer USA

Bayer Corporation, headquartered in Pittsburgh, is the U.S. holding company of the worldwide Bayer Group, an international health care and chemicals group based in Germany. Bayer employs 24,600 in North America with net North American sales of 8.9 billion euros in 2002. Their four operating business areas - HealthCare, Crop Science, Polymers and Chemicals - produce a broad range of products that help diagnose and treat diseases, purify water, preserve local landmarks, protect crops, advance automobile safety and durability and improve people's lives.

Bayer's Balcony project, deployed within the finance department to improve the credit approval process, had the twin goals of achieving navigation transparency - "Go Anywhere. from Anywhere" and seamless information access - "Get Anything. from Anyplace."

MitemView provides a key component for Balcony by providing access to the mainframe system via a custom graphical user interface (GUI). This customized GUI offers a Windows environment for navigating and interacting with the mainframe environment without the typical legacy limitations - the navigation is transparent and information can be presented very logically and in much greater quantities.  


Bayer has completed millions of completely error-free transactions over the years with the MitemView-based Balcony solution.
