When the word “quark” comes up in everyday conversation, it often elicits a kind of self- conscious chuckle. Who really knows what a quark is, after all, but a particle physicist? As a word, it more or less symbolizes the unknowably complex.

In fact, I challenge you to think of a time when it wasn’t being used to explain a highly complicated concept - except perhaps as a way to make fun of someone for being a nerd (I speak from experience as the nerd in question). The deeper you dig into the nature of quarks, the more unfamiliar things get: hadrons, baryons, leptons, mesons, and more sci-fi sounding but very real words - try Googling them if you don’t believe me.

At Pangaea Solutions, our work with many manufacturing companies over the years has allowed us to see firsthand the challenges they faced integrating ERP and MES systems. We often observed a lack of synchronization between systems in both the data and workflows. That’s why alongside our partner company, Endeavor Consulting Group, we developed “iMES” – a customizable integration tool used specifically between SAP and Manufacturing Execution Systems.

“Hesitation is the kiss of death. You might hesitate for a just nanosecond, but that’s all it takes. That one small hesitation triggers a mental system that’s designed to stop you. And it happens in less than, you guessed it, five seconds.” -  Mel Robbins, The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage
