PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Instrument Sales and Service, Inc. (ISS), a US market leader in the remanufacturing of automotive electronics in North America, is expanding into the Off Highway, Heavy Duty Truck, and Fleet markets. ISS intends to take its proven remanufacturing experience and expertise -- honed over 30 years and more than 1 million remanufactured components -- and apply it to a full spectrum of remanufacturing solutions for the Off Highway, Heavy Duty Truck, Tractor, Fleet, and Mass Transit market segments.
Dave Lisle, President and CEO of ISS summarizes the company's competitive product and service offering as follows, "ISS offers an extensive portfolio of remanufacturing capabilities for Off Highway and Heavy Duty Truck electromechanical components, including Instrumentation, Displays, Navigation, Electronic Control Modules, HVAC Controls, Driver Interface Switchgear, Radios and Vehicle Sensors. For OEM's and Tier-1 suppliers, this provides an additional past model service solution for Warranty, Service and Aftermarket customers, as well as providing significant commercial savings and OE-service parts pain management."
Some of the ways ISS is setting the standard in remanufacturing is with their ability to implement remanufacturing programs for parts that are either no longer economical to produce new, or that require a designed-in remanufacturing strategy from the start of volume production. This means improved product lifecycle profitability for OEM's, and enhanced service and extended product life for the customer.
In cooperation with the OEM and/or Tier-1 Supplier(s), the Engineering staff at ISS are able to identify component failure modes, develop test procedures and manage an end-to-end ISO:T/S 16949:2009 certified remanufacturing program. One of the primary goals with the remanufacturing process at ISS is to design and implement a past model parts service program so that it blends as seamlessly as possible with an existing OEM program.
ISS Remanufacturing General Manager, Pat Mayo, welcomes the opportunity to enter new markets where ISS is able to showcase their proven core competencies in EM-component remanufacturing. "Not only will OEM's who partner with ISS reap the benefits associated with having a Remanufacturing Partner, they will also realize streamlined efficiencies, extended product lifecycle service support, and improved customer satisfaction and retention," says Mayo. "In addition, ISS partners can also count on a value-added supply chain management process that will bring end-to-end sourcing and distribution solutions – from supplier selection and qualification, to component validation, inspection and product refurbishment and assembly, through on-time delivery to the end customer."
"While OEM's can count on increased profitability and the highest quality when partnering with ISS, there are product lifecycle and environmental benefits, as well," stated Lawrance Griffiths, Senior Director of Business Development for ISS. "While extending the useful product life and avoiding premature disposal of original OEM components, ISS also efficiently diverts 80% of their plastics and by-products from the remanufacturing process away from landfills and directly into recycling facilities. That translates to over 112,000 pounds of recycled material annually. Therefore, developing a remanufacturing strategy in partnership with ISS is not only good for the balance sheet, it's good for the environment."
Founded in 1949 as an automotive parts supplier, Instrument Sales & Service, Inc. (ISS) is now a leading global sourcing solutions provider that brings flexible and innovative solutions to complex problems by supplying highly engineered electromechanical new and remanufactured components for Operator Information, Comfort, Control and Safety in the OE post-production and aftermarket segments. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, with manufacturing, distribution and sales centers in Seattle, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, and Detroit, ISS provides prompt, efficient and accurate past model OE parts and service solutions to more than 7,000 customers worldwide in the automotive, heavy duty, off-highway, fleet, industrial, mass transit, and capital equipment industries. Customers include original equipment manufacturers (OEM's), Tier-1 suppliers, dealerships, distributors, resellers, and aftermarket parts and service companies. ISS meets the strictest quality standards in the automotive industry, including ISO/TS 16949:2009, ISO 9001:2008, and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standards.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
