Heat Treaters Eye 2024: Embracing Bluestreak’s Quality Management Software for Enhanced Revenue

As heat treaters look ahead and eye what 2024 will bring, it's crucial to continuously seek ways to integrate innovative solutions into your business model. This model, being the foundation of your revenue generation, can greatly benefit from strategic changes, potentially leading to increased income with reduced effort and overheads. The evolving landscape of technologies and markets presents new growth opportunities, necessitating a shift in perspective and approach.

Revisiting and reevaluating your current business model is a key step. Enumerating your revenue streams helps keep these factors central in your change management strategies, influencing your decisions. Consider adopting new models that align with and enhance your existing framework, possibly leading to a more refined and efficient business approach.

Changes in your business model can range from minor adjustments to major directional shifts. However, any modification should aim to increase revenue.

About Bluestreak:

Bluestreak is a powerful Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and a fully integrated Quality Management System (QMS), designed for the manufacturing environment and service-based manufacturing companies ( metal-treating/powder-coating, plating, heat-treating, forging, and metal-finishing), businesses that receive customers’ parts, perform a process (service) on them, and send those parts back to the customer). Companies need MES software tailored to specific functionality and workflow needs such as industry-specific specifications management, intuitive scheduling control for staff and machinery maintenance, and the ability to manage work orders and track real-time data. If different work centers on the production floor aren’t “speaking” to each other via the MES, the data loses value and becomes disjointed or lost in disparate silos.

Bluestreak | Bright AM™ is an MES + QMS software solution specifically designed to manage and optimize the unique requirements of Additive Manufacturing’s production of parts and powder inventory usage.
