Our position as a world class precision engineering company, and sustained growth, is built from an ethos of continuous improvement at Merc Aerospace.
We are committed to a rolling programme of positive investment in plant, training and a continuous improvement programme driven by the development of MAFIS, our bespoke ERP/MES software.
This factory management software is a key driver in helping us to achieve our ambition of attaining world class manufacturing status.
MAFIS ERP/MES is centred on the principles of lean manufacturing and has been instrumental as a continuous improvement factor for Merc Aerospace. This bespoke software controls all aspects of our engineering business from estimating to production and capacity planning, to more complex areas such as Kanban and OEE.
Our business strategy resolves around being able to deliver the most demanding machining operations at a profitable cost. MAFIS ERP/MES enables us to deliver the most demanding machining operations in a lean manner, whilst maintaining close control of an extensive and complicated order book. MAFIS ERP/MES also delivers up-time to our customer base.
A further sign of Merc Aerospace’s commitment to continuous improvement was highlighted when we became signatories of the SC21 programme. This is a key industry venture for aerospace, defence, security and space engineering and is overseen, governed and managed by ADS on behalf of UK industry.
The SC21 initiative aims to achieve supply chain improvement to ensure the continued global competitiveness of UK industry.
Here at Merc Aerospace, we were keen to become signatories of the SC21 initiative because it matches our core values and ambitions of being a world class precision engineering company. We strive to deliver competitive solutions for our customers and believe that the SC21 initiative is one indication of how we are doing this.
