Proplanner is the leader of web-enabled PLM-MDM (Manufacturing Data Management for the Product Lifecycle) solutions to streamline the release of new product introductions and product updates for assembly plants.  Our products import the eBOM and ECO to integrate and author the mBOMs, process routings, tooling requirements, plant layouts, work instructions and in-plant logistics necessary to produce complicated assemblies in many variants.  Once optimized, and reconciled, Proplanner can then automatically export all of this time-phased information to ERP systems such as SAP, Oracle, Mapics and JD Edwards for rapid, accurate, and optimally engineered production release.

Please read a feature on Proplanner from the Ames Tribune.

Proplanner offers products to engineer and manage the manufacturing process and plant, as well as engineer and execute the in-plant logistics system.  Assembly Planner, ProTime and ProBalance are applications used to estimate activity and operation times, balance work across the assembly line, generate and deploy shop floor instructions, and publish mBOMs and Routings to ERP.  PFEP is an application used to define the placement, containerization, and replenishment of materials in stations along the assembly line, and subsequently execute eKanban and eKitting materials replenishment.  The integration of these applications provide a full solution from eBOM and ECO to production deployment.

Prior to founding Proplanner, Dr. David Sly founded Cimtechnologies Corporation in 1987 around his master's thesis (FactoryFLOW). FactoryFLOW was the first AutoCAD-based factory layout and material flow analysis application.  Subsequently, the company developed a suite of other plant layout applications, including FactoryCAD and FactoryPLAN.  These applications were eventually sold to EDS and then later to a company that later became Siemens/PLM, who continues to sell those products today.  After leaving EDS to found Proplanner, Dr. Sly focused on developing a next-generation suite of integrated Plant and Process Engineering applications which heavily leveraged the latest internet technologies.

Proplanner is a privately held Chapter C Corporation incorporated within the State of Iowa in April 2002 by its founder, Dr. David Sly, PE, who is currently the president and minority shareholder.  The company is owned by investors and employees, with the largest institutional investors being WellMark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Emerging Growth Group, Ames Seed Capital Fund, and the Cedar Valley Venture Fund.  In addition, the company has received funding from the Iowa Department of Economic Development.
