Pico MES Boosts American Manufacturing Production Through Digital Solutions for Small to Medium-sized Factories
In just 18 months since digitizing its factory floor with Pico MES, RV manufacturing leader MORryde has migrated over 500 complex assembly processes from paper to digital, improved production by 50%, and improved quality assurance for its core product.
San Francisco, Calif. - Fresh off a $12.35M Series A investment led by Bosch Ventures, Pico MES is enabling the digital transformation of small to medium-sized manufacturers. Pico MES is an affordable no-code, IOT platform that creates a digital twin of assembly processes and integrates with limitless factory tools to directly boost the efficiency and output of the American supply base. With 98 percent of American factories operating with 500 or fewer factory workers, Pico MES helps manufacturers increase and better measure their productivity to help address current labor challenges for the production of advanced products. Today, the company shares new customer data that demonstrates how its software capabilities create connected factories and bridge the manufacturing skills gap.
Based in Elkhart, Indiana, RV manufacturing leader MORryde initially implemented Pico MES to help improve quality control during the installation of drivelines on motor homes. After seeing immediate value, MORryde quickly expanded the software into its general assembly department, where over 1,000 part numbers are digitized and managed through Pico MES. In just 18 months since installing Pico MES, MORryde shared the following results:
Migration of over 500 complex assembly processes from paper to digital
Measurable improvement of a 50 percent increase in production output
Over 2,400 chassis manufactured without any quality concerns
Full integration between Pico MES and their ERP system
100 percent backward traceability in all areas of assembly where Pico MES is installed
