MES Software Available as Add-on License

Throughput I Bluestreak, a provider of manufacturing execution system (MES) software, has made Bluestreak I iTAR/EAR available as an add-on license to Advanced Specification Library compliance software.

"Because it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure its supply chain is ITAR certified or ITAR compliant, our clients in the metals and surface finishing industries, who provide a service to parts such as heat treating, plating and powder coating, are also required to abide by ITAR," said Todd Wenzel, CEO of Throughput I Bluestreak. "Noncompliance could result in substantial penalties, both civil and criminal. Bluestreak was designed for the unique needs of a service-based environment to manage this complex regulatory program."

The company noted that Bluestreak I iTAR/EAR has the depth and breadth to implement and manage all aspects of a compliance program:

  • Easy-to-access audit trails
  • Manage and control sensitive information such as processing instructions, quality specifications, quality test results and any media such as part drawings, customer procedures, etc.
  • Limit distribution to safe recipients (traceable communication).

Advanced Specification Library also supports AIAG, API, AMS, AS, ASME, ASTM, ISO, NADCA, NADCAP, SAE, TS and more, plus any internal and Prime's specifications. "This innovative solution enables businesses to conform to specification requirements every time while automatically creating and maintaining a fully documented audit trail containing specification documents, requirements and media," said a company spokesperson.

Bluestreak Suite is designed exclusively for a service-based manufacturing environment, where the primary focus is processing and not inventory management. "Any service-based manufacturing company can easily customize Bluestreak to mirror unique business workflows," said the spokesperson.
