Smart Start

Configurable, Extensible, Scalable

Smart Solutions begin with a Smart Start.

Smart Start is the straightforward, cost-effective way for manufacturers to begin the journey to digitization by achieving a specific goal – for example, to uncover the cause of variable quality or performance – in a specific process area or production line. The heart of any Smart Start is the Parsec TrakSYS™ platform – a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). Services for configuration, coaching, and training are included, delivered by ACC’s manufacturing intelligence team.

We’re with you every step of the way – from identifying achievable goals to configuring TrakSYS to reflect the specific production or process environment and information, and making sure real-time accurate information is delivered to users in the specific format they need it. We provide training so your team will be empowered with access to information and the tools to exploit the power of digitization.
Every manufacturer’s needs and challenges are unique. Our team can work with you to tailor the best and most effective Smart start for your organization. Or leverage our standard packages that address the most common challenges our customers face:


Provides the tools to foster an effective and sustainable quality culture. The availability of real-time, contextualized information provides deep insight into the events and issues that affect quality. The Smart Start will provide the tools to take quick action on those insights, resulting in a closed-loop quality management system.

Track &

Maintain inventory accuracy and track real-time location and status. Maintain in-process inventory. Ensure complete genealogy from raw materials through work-in-progress through finished goods. Tracking each material movement ensures complete genealogy. Arm your team with tools to reduce inventory levels and improve on-time delivery.

Performance Management

Discover your true OEE and – even more important – what drives it. Connect to your existing plant floor infrastructure for real-time automated data collection, or utilize flexible tools for manual entry. Use this visibility to drive improvements and foster a performance culture.

After the Smart Start

Your team is now empowered with access to information and the tools to exploit the power of digitization. After the Smart Start, the journey to digitization can be accelerated by leveraging additional TrakSYS modules and ACC’s services. Here are a few ways we can help:
