FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. -- May 2, 2013

iBASEt has successfully completed software upgrades of its paperless
Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) system, Solumina (G7R5), with
integration to ATK’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) materials management
system at the ATK-operated Allegany Ballistics Laboratory (ABL) in Rocket
Center, WV. This upgrade sets the stage for full deployment of the integrated
manufacturing execution and quality solutions at ABL for 2013.

The full deployment of Solumina is part of an initiative at the ABL facility
to standardize and upgrade systems for manufacturing process planning, shop
floor control and quality functions. Shop floor process work instructions are
delivered electronically with capture of execution history, employee training
verifications and product build genealogy. Solumina complements ATK’s ERP
materials management system by providing the process management functionality
needed in highly regulated industries such as aerospace and defense. Solumina
provides configurable functionality to manage and improve real-time operations
in complex, discrete environments while easily integrating with the enterprise
CAD/PDM and ERP solutions.

With Solumina G7R5’s robust solutions offering, ABL will standardize process
management procedures at the more finite operation level, including work
instructions, inspection requirements, tooling sheets and operator
certification verifications. The application has provided standardized
workflow, configuration control and change management procedures for
manufacturing processing and quality operations.

“ATK takes pride in developing and implementing a best practice approach
toward automating our manufacturing operations management systems, and
addressing the needs of our shop floor operations,” stated Pat Nolan, ATK
Tactical Propulsion and Ordnance, Vice President and Site Manager for ABL.
“The industry expertise and rapid implementation methodology adopted by iBASEt
is allowing us to move forward quickly with full deployment across the
facility during 2013.”
