Berkeley, CA – System Insights (SI) announced that S&S Cycle has
selected VIMANA as their manufacturing software platform for improving shop floor production efficiency.
S&S Cycle, Inc. has been in the v-twin high performance parts business for over 50 years, specializing in motorcycle parts like high performance motorcycle kits for Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. S&S Cycle manufactures a complete line of motorcycle performance products ranging from motorcycle slip-on exhaust, bolt on performance intakes, motorcycle big bore kits, or a complete motorcycle engine.
Shawn Thompson, Manufacturing Engineering Manager, S&S Cycle said, “We started with a different software and couldn’t get to the finite level of reporting we needed. We switched to VIMANA and haven’t looked back. The service is great, software has the level of depth we needed, and the reporting is intuitive. We look forward to the savings we will gain from this investment.”
Dr. Athulan Vijayaraghavan, CTO, System Insights, added, “It has been great working with S&S Cycle in launching VIMANA and integrating it with their existing IT systems. We are looking forward to working with them in applying VIMANA to identify and help reduce production disruptions”.
VIMANA will be monitoring and providing analytics for all the shop floor equipment in S&S Cycle’s Lacrosse, WI facility. The total supported footprint is approximately 20 machine tools from a variety of vendors including Mazak, and Brother.
