Behind President and CEO Lyle’s leadership and a quarter century of working side-by-side with the manufacturing industry’s foremost experts, InfinityQS has become a beacon for enterprise quality in the supply chain industry. Headquartered near Washington, D.C., with offices in Seattle, London, Beijing and Shanghai, the company now services more than 40,000 active licenses with over 2,500 of the world’s top manufacturers including Kraft Foods, Ball Corporation, Boston Scientific, Graham Packaging and Medtronic. In addition to general manufacturing operations, the company’s expertise spans the aerospace & defense, automotive, food & beverage, life sciences and packaging industries.
InfinityQS’ enterprise quality hub, ProFicient, is enabling global manufacturers to turn data into actionable Manufacturing Intelligence to not only improve product quality, but also decrease costs, maintain compliance and make smarter business decisions across the supply chain. Powered by a centralized SPC analytical engine, ProFicient is proving to be the missing piece of the quality “puzzle.”
“Today’s supply chains face the challenge of managing disparate technology systems that silo prolific amounts of data,” Lyle said. “Our ProFicient quality hub eliminates these inconsistencies by bringing together various data sources to create unified visibility. We are now seeing manufacturers truly taking control of quality and gaining a greater understanding of the meaning behind the data they collect.”
A rapidly growing Fortune 500 company and manufacturer of wire and cable products used ProFicient to improve visibility and decrease process variations from plant to plant and supplier to supplier. As a result, this company experienced significant savings in raw material usage on three production lines over the course of a year, while ensuring product quality across the enterprise and throughout the supply chain.
“Cloud computing is becoming more prominent in the manufacturing industry,” Lyle said. “It allows for collaboration beyond the manufacturer’s own organization, and brings data from suppliers’ operations into the quality hub for an even greater level of visibility. Therefore, manufacturers can monitor their suppliers’ processes in real-time to identify issues before components are ever shipped or incorporated into a final product.”

With unrelenting innovation and foresight, Lyle and his team will continue to sit at the forefront of enterprise quality in the supply chain – a much more comfortable place than a plywood desk in a mobile home.
